Rubin already hearing Eric Young could be back as a starter:
I'm perfectly fine on listening on Murphy; he's solid but there's no way he's some kind of untouchable player. But EY Jr. as his replacement, or as a starter anywhere? That would be ridiculous. I hope this is just all bullsh!t and, at most, Young returns as a utility player.
This is exactly what I'm afraid of...for some reason EY has gotten WAY more mileage out of that first month here than he ever should have, in way too many circles. If he's being penciled in as a starter next season, then I've lost all respect for Sandy. Being fast isn't much of a help if you can't get on base to actually use it.
Check out his August and September numbers (which are damned near identical). Sub-.240 batting avg. Sub-.290 OB%. From the LEADOFF HITTER no less! Oh yeah, he also has a combined 15 BB and 41 K in those two months. Sorry Sandy, if you think for a second that you're going to sell us on Eric Young, then you really must think the Met fans are clueless. We're not. Like others have noted...want to keep him around as a pinch runner/fifth outfielder-type, fine. Anything more than that, it's a joke.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
