WELL I CAN TELL BY YOUR GAME, YOU’RE GONNA START A FLAME, LOVE BABY LOVE I’M NOT GONNA CHOKE FROM THE SMOKE GOT ME TIGHTENIN’ UP MY STROKE DO YOU FEEL IT GIRL YEAH

Odds are that tonight will be the finale of the 2008  baseball season as Cole Hamels should make quick work  of the Famous Rays who were losers as soon the pulled in to Cheesesteak City wearing  those baseball caps for pussies as so there little ears wouldn’t get frost bit in the fridged 55 degrees temps. Just like their football cousins the Famous Rays can’t take the mild.

 

Seems the gas lines in the Philadelphia area and long from Camden NJ to Central City as Phillie fans fill up their empty beer bottles and concoct their celebratory Molotov Cocktails in preparation of burning down the city in honor of the Phillies World Series Championship. Let’s play a little guessing game, how many cars will be destroyed by fire in the CBP parking lot tonight? I’ll say 10. How many fans will suffer gunshot wounds? I’ll say 6. How many arrests altogether following the game will the Philly PD make? Put me down for 150. Or will the settle for just a good old fashion subway beat down?

 

Dan Graziano has a good “keep the core” column on the Mets and what they need to build around “the Core”

 

Bill Madden with the lowdown on Jake Peavey and the Florida Marlins closeout sale. You’d have to think that Kevin Gregg is on Omar’s winter shopping list.

 

Get your popcorn ready Icelander fans; the Broadway Blueshirts are coming to the Mausoleum tonight. I love seeing all those Ranger sweaters in the front row seats behind the Icelander bench.

 

Check out this video I found via the outstanding Uni Watch site, it’s a 1965 Mets highlight film and I use the word “highlight” very loosely as that 65 Mets added to the franchise start of futility by posting a 50-112 record, the fourth straight 100+ losing season. Also that season saw the end of the managerial reign of the Old Perfesser as a broken hip not only ended Casey Stengel’s Mets managerial career but his career in baseball period. Former Giants catcher Wes Westrum took over as manager (Westrum got the job over Yogi Berra who was on the coaching staff and had 9 AB’s that season ). Also on the 1965 roster was the immortal Warren Spahn and Tug McGraw and Ron Swoboda made their big league debuts. Again a tip of the blue and orange Mets cap to Uni Watch for the link.

  1. Nobody has called out the Phillie “fans” as the front runners they are. This “medal of honor” they’ve been given is BULLSHIT! Where were they in 2004, 2005, 2006, and most of 2007? Brand new park and all, they could not draw. How come no one has talked about the “Let’s go Iggles” chants in July? Fucking joke, biggest front runners in sports. And seeing Phony Harry do the lineups with that awful, fake voice made my stomach turn.

    Please, God, give the Rays 3 in a row!

  2. Funny but that’s what Jimmy Rollins said
