Very late with my post today as I’m in some serious need of motivation.  It’s a Carlos Delgado playing for Willie Randolph kind of day for a few reasons.


The A/C in the building has been shut so with the warm weather it is hot as hell in this office today so it’s hot and stuffy kind of like all of Highlander Nation .


Knowing that the Phelatios are a game away from the World Series on the power of one of my favorite players, Professional Hitter Mat Stairs makes it even worse. Then you have the Little Hawaiian Punch Victorino in his Little League batting helmet and grass skirt making big play after big play and acting like he doesn’t need that winter job of his anymore. (EDIT: I got rethink my opinion of Stairs as he “likes to have his ass pounded WOHA NELLY, I guess he’s seen Victorino do the hula in the shower)


A little vindication for Pack A Day Hank as St Joseph of Torre the patron saint of tea drinkers decided that Derek Lowe was done after 73 pitches and turned the game over to relievers as green as plantains.


Looks like Papi ain’t so Big without Manny around? Tell me that a lineup with Beltran in the 2 spot, Manny in the 3, Delgado 4 Wright 5 Church 6 with Reyes on top wouldn’t make the NL shit itself silly?


The more a look at it the more it seems if K-Rod wants to be a Met it will be under the Mets terms and not his. I think Omar would rather go with lower level free agents like Juan Cruz, Jeremy Affeldt as bridge guys  and a closer/8th inning guy like Brain Fuentes but I would like for Omar to explore a deal with the White Sox for Bobby Jenks and of course, AJ Pierzynski.


I’ve got to agree with Mike Silva, it sounds like Joe Bad Bing Benigno and Mike All Mighty Francesa sound like a match made in radio heaven. If WFAN would pair Francesa and Benigino in the afternoon then they should put the team of Curly Carlin and Kim Jones on at 10 to 1 and make Evan Roberts a utility host.


An other reason for lackadaisical day is my sadness over the death of NY Rangers prospect Alexei Cherpanov. For the non-hockey fan, Cherpanov is the Ranges equivalent of Fernando Martinez and from although the reports out of Russia are very very spotty it leaves one to wonder if an ambulance and or a difibulator were at the rink this tragedy could have been avoided.


I think someone else like guys pounding on his ass as well
