Sorry for the late post but I’m as busy as a trauma nurse in the Kings County ER on a Saturday night as I try to get a ton of work done so I can get out the office as tonight in big night on Staten Island as my 9 yr old daughters 4th grade CYO basketball team plays in the championship game tonight. If they win it will be back to back titles as they were the 3rd grade girls champs last year. I hope Gino Auremma and Pat Summit show up tonight looking for to get commitments from the girls.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend a this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

The more I keep trying to convince myself that it’s ok that Manny is not a Met the more I torture myself. I know I said I was on board with the decision the Mets made not to sign him but them why is when I watch his presser, I hate rate jumps and I get jumpy like I just drank 5 Manhattan Specials? All I keep think is if Manny was n the Mets lineup I could be the 5th starter and the team would still win.

So now Alex Rodriguez needs surgery on his hip that will keep him out 10 weeks so wouldn’t it be nice if Captain Craptastic invited Rodriguez to stay with him while he recuperates? Kind of like a Oscar Madison Felix Unger scenario

Here is your 5th starter kids.

  1. David in Manhattan says:

    If not for Bernie, we would have Manny.

    When that criminal asshole Bernie Madoff stole $300 million from the Wilpon’s, it was enough to force the Skill Sets crowd to sit on their hands and watch the Dodgers sign this Hall of Fame-bound, New York City kid. Imagine the Mets, the World’s Team, walking into Citi Field with a team led by so many top-shelf players…Dominicans Manny and José, Venezuelans Santana and F-Rod, Puerto Ricans Beltran and Delgado (and maybe Pudge), Mexican Oliver Perez, Americans David Wright, Putz, Maine, Pelfry, Church, J-Man, etc. Luckily, we will have all the rest of those players marching into the new ball park…not too shabby!

    I am pretty sure the Wilpon’s would have laid the money on the table if not for the disgusting Bernie Madoff.

    Even without Manny this team can win it all, but it will have to earn it game after game on the field, night after night. Let’s Go Mets!
