LET ME GET A THERA-FLU COCKTAIL WITH A NYQUIL CHASER

I’m home today still sick but I’m sure I’ll be fine tomorrow just in time to shovel about 7 inches of snow that’s supposed to hit NYC.

After waking up from a Nyquil stupor I was perusing the ‘net for Mets stories and of course my first stop was Mathew Cerrone’s Metsblog, in which a few posts had me thinking:

It’s about time for the Mets and Omar Minaya to call Jason Bay’ bluff. Tell him and his agent “here’s the deal 4yrs/$68-70mil take it or leave it” then give him 48 hrs to decide. If he can get more from this mystery team that’s out there, so be it. Time for the Mets to man up and let Bay take them for assholes.

Same thing with Bengi Molina. There is no team in any baseball league-MLB, Japanese League, Little League, or Men’s Sunday softball league , that will give Bengi a 3 yr deal. Again Omar needs to make a take it or leave it 2yr deal an if Molina balks then go to Rod Barajas or Miguel Olivo (two better choices ) or go with the Blanco/Santos later in the year Josh Thole catching troika. 3 yrs for Bengi Moilina? Keep dreaming

Good to see that the Mets are taking my advice and speaking to the Cincinnati Red Stockings about Aaron Harang and or Bronson Arroyo. This wanna be GM’ing is tough so how about a finders fee to me Jeffey?

It’s amazing that the Jose Reyes/Mike Francesa sit down from Wednesday is still getting so much buzz. Reyes handled himself beautifully with the FAN Bloviator as he let his personality and passion show thru. Instead of hearing from second and third sources we heard right from the shortstops mouth that he never had a problem with Willie Randolph and understood full why he was benched for non-hustle and the fact that he wanted to come back to play so badly last year that he injured himself more. Reyes also said his personality is what it is and he’s not about to change and he told it like it is about the handshakes and celebrating, how what he does is tame to what other teams do. The sad part of the interview was Francesa telling the audience that he had to plead with the Mets to let Reyes come on with him. It just shows how out of touch management is. Reyes and Jeff Francouer have done more for goodwill amongst the fan base this week that even the incompetent Jeffey Skill Sets should be able to see that but I may be asking for too much.

  1. I’ve got an issue with the Reyes interview, babe.

    There is no solid reason for him to show up looking like a street punk! He needs a serious wardrobe consultant.

  2. Here’s a great idea: Trade Santana

    Klapisch thinks it would make sense.

  3. Why we have no hope at the moment…

    Cashman dumps Damon and signs a younger Nick Johnson. Even though Damon was productive, Cashman recognizes age and that age has an inverse relationship with productivity.

    Our GM gives people like Damon (36 I think) multi-year deals.

    Anyone disagree?

  4. Com’on Michael give me a break I know you root for a team full of stuffed shirts but how do you think most twenty-somethigns dress these days? If the worst think you can say about Reyes is that you don’t approve ofhis attire then he’s going to be fine.

    I’ll get off your lawn now

  5. when you get writers block I guess you’ll pull anything out of your ass and it looks like The Klapper pulled out a big long turd

    Sorry Steve but I beg to differ. Reyes is paid large dollars and with that comes a certain responsibility to represent The Mets. For better or worse he is one of the primary faces of the team. If he cleaned up his appearance it would help cleanse the perceptions out there about his maturity.

    (Yes, actions on the field speak loudest)

    Yes, THE WORLD CHAMPIONS have a dress code and I agree with it.

  7. Krane…………dam where is your common sense its called everyone marching to the same tune. Reyes is a punk and has proved it many times. How you dress how you act ahs a lot to do with how you take care of business. The 60′s are over. it didnt work. @kranepool -
