Jerry Week Continues: Mets Edition

Tonight the New York National League baseball club takes on the Los Angeles trolley dodgers for the right to the face the Cubbies for a spot in the World Series. The Mets and Jacob DeGrom will be dealing with the likely runner up for the NL Cy Young award so they have an uphill battle. Hopefully some Met related Jerrys will bring them some luck.

We start with this guy who heads the small pod of celebrity Met fans, which apparently also includes Harper Lee. (Put that in your pipe and smoke it you erudite, literary snob Red Sox fans) :

What's the deal with our crappy defense?
Based on that photo alone, Jerry Seinfeld, or little yerry Seinfeld for that matter, may have been a better manager than this guy: 

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh........
Jerry Manuel never quite seemed to get the intricacies of the double switch, but maybe he can merge his Jerryness with Seinfeld to form a Voltron like super Jerry and vanquish the Dodgers.

Jerry S stops by spring training to talk with Jerry M after a visit to CVS
However, the manager can only do so much.  In the end, it all comes down to pitching and Met fans hope that DeGrom pitches like this guy who pitched a complete game to lock down the 1969 World Series: 
Clarence loves himself some Koos
Instead of like this guy who was a lousy Met but is a Toms River, NJ native, VCU grad, and is the current Mariners GM:

Hey, I went 7-2 with the 96' Mets.  That deserves Cy Young consideration.

If DeGrom (who Mrs. Marls says looks like Hollywood Steve Huey of Yacht Rock fame) does, it gives the Metsies a good chance to win and that would make the Jerry in Caicos jerry happy.

Follow up:

As Whit correctly points out in the comments, we should not forget Jerry Grote who caught game five of the 69' series in what might be the greatest Jerry moment in the history of sports.

Sawyer Brown! Shining moment of my 10th anniversary ... Losing charity trivia to a team named Lamar Odom's Scrotum

TR said...

Sounds like Odom's scrotum was quite busy earlier this week.

Noah is throwing smoke.

Pinch-hitting for Familia and bringing Harvey in to close would be a baller move by Collins.

Dave said...

hello gheorghies! mets mania at the park pub tonight . . .

Marls said...

Pre midnight hi gheorghies party foul.

T.J. said...

zman said...

Was there a baseball game on last night?

Dave said...

don't give me that crap, marls. i have to be at work at 7:06 AM and then i coached two soccer practices after school-- from 3:30 to 8 PM-- and still made it to the pub by 8:30.

11:40 is WAY after midnight for me . . . party foul my ass.

i demand full "hey gheorghies" credit in the book.

Dave said...

i hope TJ is keeping the book. i remember what happened at OBFT during the classic rock shoot-out . . .

Dave said...

by "is" i meant "isn't"

T.J. said...

top men are working on it.

top. men.

T.J. said...

push away from the keyboard, dave

Whitney said...

TR, any chance you are going to the Jets game Sunday?

Marls said...

If pub night was in the Canadian maritimes then you get full credit.

TR said...

Whit - I gave up my season tix after last year and am not in a rush to get back unless I get the uber-cushy seats. You gonna be in the greater Rutherford area?

Shlara said...

who else is going to Mets vs Cubs tomorrow?
I don't have enough warm clothes in NYC to survie 9 innings in 35 degrees--going to have to go shopping

Whitney said...

So here's the deal. Thanks in large part to some kick-ass generosity of GTB's own Marls, I am making my way from Virginia to NYC tomorrow. Mets/Cubs game 1 tomorrow night with my sister/bro in law/cousins. Skins/Jets Sunday afternoon with Marls. Mets/Cubs game 2 Sunday night with Marls. Quite a weekend.

zman said...

Shlara, Shop Luscious on 55th should have what you need.

zman said...

Will the Wharls extravaganza spend any time in NJ outside of the Jest game?

rob said...

marcus off to a slow start down under, averaging 9.0 ppg on 5-22 shooting in his first two contests for the sydney kings.

Whitney said...

I defer to Marlsy Marls but I believe it would have to be breakfast near the Meadowlands. Yum.

Shlara said...

I think we'll need a running diary of the Marls/Clarence/Whitney sportsfest on Sunday

zman said...

I suggest Taylor ham egg and cheese sangwitches for breakfast.

rob said...

fogtb buck sent me a text this morning that was intended for his wife. that, or he loves me.

Whitney said...

He does, of course.
