Keith Hernandez rips ex-mate Gary Carter on air: Keith Hernandez ripped his former Mets teammate, Gary Carter, during yesterday's game on Ch. 11, calling him "unconscious" after Carter openly campaigned for the managerial job currently occupied by Willie Randolph.

Here's a little more Carter. Thanks for the story, BI. (Damn that Aaron Boone.)

I gotta admit, this does sound like a funny little douchebag-on-douchebag catfight. Sound and fury, signifying nothing, etc.

Sounds like Gary Carter has done the opposite of what he intended. If he was interested in the Mets job, I can't see how he would get it now.

WHAT GARY CARTER SAID WAS WRONG, BUT WHO IS KEITH TO SAY ANYTHING , YES HE WAS A GREAT BALLPLAYER BUT AS A HUMAN BEING HE SUCKS !!!! Why are you yelling? There's a CAPS LOCK button right above the SHIFT key and below the TAB key, feel free to use it anytime. As for Gary Carter, I've been a Mets fan since I was 4 years old and Gary Carter was one of my favorite players growing up but after this incident, he lost my respect. There's just no reason for Gary to do this and if he really wanted the Mets gig, he should just wait until the job was vacant. Such a jerk off move!!

Now if Hernandez had spat on Gary Carter, that would be a whole 'nother thing. I agree that Carter is a real non-comprehender for trying to position himself for the Mets job while Randolph is still in place. Way to guarantee that you don't get the job.

I grew up with Carter as one of my favorite players but how many guys get managerial jobs in franchises like the Mets by lobbying in the press? Obviously some of those foul balls came back and connected with his noggin during his playing career. That and it was pretty classless even if it was going to work. I hope some day Carter has to apply for a job decided by Randolph.

BORNICON, WANTED TO BE HEARD AND MAKE MY POIIIIINT!!!! Point taken, old man. It's just considered bad form around here to do so. We all get a mulligan from time to time. Just like to keep the comments in the lower case to avoid being rude to the other members.

I'm sorry, hermitt. I can barely hear you over the sound of eveyone else being reasonable about a silly story. Perhaps you could use a larger font; that will surely make your points more credible.

POINT TAKEN!

POIIIIINT!!!! What exactly is a POIIIIINT!!!! I checked my Funk & Wagnalls, and couldn't find that word. By the way, you might want to get someone to check out your keyboard, some of the letters and punctuation marks seem to be sticking.

This thread resembles an eye chart at LensCrafters. This is all the Expos fault. If they would've taken their history along to Washington and made a bronze for Carter, he'd be a happy guy. POIIIIINT, should be read as Roman Numerals. It translates, I think, to like 2,876,389.

This really boils down to a long standing pissing match over whether or not a porn stache can pull more chicks then a man-perm circa 1986.

Didn't that whole '86 Mets team turn out to be pretty much a bunch of douchebags? Okay, not HoJo, but the rest of 'em? Douchebags.

Well, if one trusts Carter (and that is a stretch) BoKnows' link up there sort of explains the situation. Who knows what was really said. I'm not a big fan of Carter or Hernandez. That said, assuming Hernandez believed that Carter said what he said, I can understand him being pissed off at Carter. Of course, if it turns out Carter really was misquoted, then Hernandez looks like he overreacted.
