I CAN’T STAY LONG, I”M DOUBLE PARKED

Sorry for no posts this morning but it’s been a busy day. So busy that I forget all about the David Wright sit down with the Sports Bloviator. I caught the tail end of the sit down as I traveled back from Brooklyn and I guess you could say it was typical David Wright. All positives and nothing controversial.

It looks like it’s a foregone conclusion that Bengi Molina will be the Mets #1 catcher this coming season. Again this looks to be another move where Omar was told to sit in the corner as the way the Mets have made Molina sit and stew is very un-Mets like. Same with Carlos Delgado who I think the Mets brain trust only went to Puerto Rico to see just to get away from freezing cold weather in NYC. Think about it, if the Mets were strictly an Omar Minaya Production, Molina, Delgado and Joel Piniero would be celebrating their multi year deals by now. Looks like those days are over.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Art Rust Jr. who was sportstalk radio in this town back in the 1980’s. Rust hosted a three hour call in show on WABC and unlike WFAN he actually talked ALL sports. In fact I had called in to his show because a young Mark Messier came on to talk hockey and agreed to take calls from fans. Rust was a great baseball historian and a huge Highlander fan but his real passion was for The Sweet Science and he had all the big time boxers on his show.  R.I.P. Arthur George.

  1. If and when Molina signs (prob a two year deal, the Mets are the Mets after all) I GUARANTEE that by July, the conversation will be “The Mets would love unload Molina’s contract, but there are no takers for a 37 year old catcher, batting .230 and signed for another year”. I PROMISE!!

    Got a picture of Citi tonight in the mail. The note says “Happy Holidays”…hmm, that was weeks ago. Also, says “Opening Day at Citi”, uh, I was there, it was a NIGHT game.
