Chutley And The Mets...It's A Sad, Sad, Song
As if it weren't bad enough we just have to face him when we play Philly, folks, it has just come to my attention that Chase Utley, a/k/a "Chutley" has as many home runs as the entire Mets team. And the number is ten folks -- TEN. And this is, what, well into the fourth week of the season? That puts us right smack in the unenviable position of being 28th in the major leagues in team home runs. Read it and weep, guys and gals. That's a whopping average of 2.5 per week for Chutley, and 2.5 per week for the entire Mets team. Give or take a point there, but seriously, at this piss poor power showing, who the hell is counting????
And what's even sadder is that David Wright has four of the ten. That's 40%, in case you were wondering. 40% of the paltry ten home runs this team has hit thus far this year.
As if the economy and the recession and some say oncoming depression weren't enough, now we have to face the fact that the Mets have simply no power, zero, zip, zilch, nada. None.
Maybe as good a reason as any as to why the team has gotten off to a... sluggish start.
And here are the major power frauds as of today: Carlos Delgado and Carlos Beltran.
I've got my eyes on you, boys. And you know what that means!
