Note: If anyone cares, the title of "Mr. MetsScribe" will NOT be taken over by Mr. JetsScribe. Apparently, that was only temporary until someone else was found. It looks like that person has been installed and will become Mr. MetsScribe2.

Onward and downward with Fives & Flubs.................

The only "5" is mixed with a flub. The three after that are a series from the 4-15-19 Record.

Everything else - with the exception of the last item - is Flub City.

That last item came from an intelligent reader and it was in today's Record, so it's quite timely.

Sloppy season is upon us (does it ever leave?). You know things are bad when it's only been 6 days since the last Fives & Flubs post - usually it's around twice as long. I smell an upside-down learning curve at my "favorite" (that's beginning to wear thin, guys............get your collective act together soon, please) newspaper.

Let's get started.

You can bet that when one team writer does it, the other has to, right? After an almost-Five, the flubs follow.............

The photo of Art Stapleton is probably 20 years old, if not older. After The Record left Hackensack in 2009, the Sports section was put out in Rockaway, where the presses were located, not in Woodland Park. Not sure if that is still the case. The paper's clips -- newspaper stories going back I don't know how long -- also were kept in Rockaway.

It's getting worse. This time, it's only been FIVE days since my last post of FIVES & FLUBS. I hope this doesn't devolve into a daily event. Who has the time every day to deal with an increasingly-Devo newspaper?

I have 5 things in the "5 things" section and the last one also has a flub which leads right into the never-ending flood of flubs:

Only one "5" this time - probably because the paper was too busy doing other important stuff, like writing dopey "reacts" captions on every other sports picture and and featuring the same article on the Opinion page twice within a three-day period.

Those 5s - they're just so darn helpful! How else would you know what to watch, what to take away, what to know, how to mark D-Day and those all-important restaurant openings you missed?

The flubs speak for themselves...................unfortunately.

3 Fives and 17 Flubs (and I'm not including the SUPER flub that was recently in the Obituary pages where one deceased gentleman's last name was changed to the town he lived in.....that poor family!):
