IT’LL TAKE MORE THAN JASON BAY TO MAKE ME SMILE

Ok, now that Christmas and New Years are over, time to get back to work. That means you Omar Minaya. It’s nice that Jason Bay is going to turn his head and cough for the Mets quacks and the cold cut platter from King Kullen will be laid out at the Shotgun Shuba Room at $iti Field by tomorrow but until Omar and Co. sign or trade for at least two legitimate starting pitchers, well just call me under whelmed.

The Sports God’s must really hate me my guts. First, they torture me all summer with the Mets and then they tease me with the New York Football Giants going 5-0 and then amp me up with a game against the undefeated Nawlin’s Saints only to get the ass handed to them. From that game, the season went down the shitter. Now the Boston Celtics, the one team I root for that shows any heart and fight, are now bitten by the injury bug. Down goes Paul Pierce, KG, Marquis Daniels, and my man Rondo. The NY Rangers either win or lose games 2-1 depending on whether Marion Gaborik scores 1 or 2 goals. My only hope for a good run through the playoffs are the C’s as long as the PP, KG, and Rondo can stay on the court.

Let me add my voice to the “Bring David Cone to SNY” campaign. Talk about your no-brainers. Coney in studio and as a back up to Mex and Ron Darling is a perfect fit. In fact how about letting Gary Cohen get a day off or two and put Mex, Darling and Coney to do the play by play.  Com’on SNY this one is on a platter for you guys.

A must see today is this post from The Mets Police, with a exquisite collection of Mets Pennants. It makes me think back to when the vendors would be outside Shea with  souvenir boards filled with pennants, buttons with action shots of Mets players, and key chains with Mr. Met on them.

    The Giants killed me. To be handed this, after the season the Mets had. Just goes to show in today’s pass happy league, don’t show up if you don’t have a good secondary — and good safeties in particular. There was a lot that went wrong with the Giants this year, but safety play has to top the list. Receivers were wide open all the time, as the zone coverage broke down and everyone in blue looked confused and in the wrong place. Tight ends feasted on them all season.

    The Rangers and Mets will suck. (I wish I rooted for the Celtics or cared about the NBA.) There is no hope.

  2. If my Jets can make the playoffs, so can my Mets. Bay could be a Blue Collar guy. I’ll give him a chance to see what he can do. Omar likes the Big Splash- go get Carlos Z from the Cubs. With Jose and Beltran coming back, we’re better. How excited would we be if we had just signed those two new to the team? Do you think Goodell will fine the Jets for resting their Defense (TOP)?

    I think his Yankee years were punctuated by popping Piazza up in Game 4.

    What do the Shake Shackers think?

    @peter – To my fellow blue ‘n orange: Would you still get Zambrano if it meant giving up Pelfrey? (Carlos, I mean — not Victor)
