JEFFEY AND JOHN’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE

So it just happens that Jeffey Wilpon en route to St Lonesome to watch some of his prized farm hands with GM in training John Ricco in tow, makes a pit stop in Atlanta maybe to watch his team play but most likely to buy a pair of high class kicks, but anyway while he was in town taking in the ball game, his manager for the next month, Jerry Manuel felt this was as good as time as ever to show Jeffey Skill Sets where is daddy’s hard earn cash is going. First J-Man inserted Luis Castillo and Jeff Francoeur in the lineup, because I don’t know if you’ve heard (come closer to the screen because this info needs to be kept on the downlow) the Mets still think they are in contention for the post season shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh don’t let the rest of the NL know shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Pat Misch made every Mets fan who wondered why he wasn’t given the call up earlier the answer to that query by getting pounded harder than an British Heavyweight . But just as Jeffey Skill Sets and Executive in Training Ricco were ready to leave, Manuel sent a note to them to hang in for another inning or two as he had a really big surprise for them. So Jeffey grabbed another cotton candy and went back to his seat.

So now it’s the bottom of the seventh inning and the Mets down five runs and Jeffey on his eighth Coca-Cola is getting antsy as he’s seen enough of this listless team and all he can think about is watching Nickelodeon on the TV of the St. Lonesome Motel 6 when all of a sudden the visitor’s bullpen gate opens and on the big screen at the Ted this video appears and the crowd let’s out a collective gasp:

“One singular sensation, every little step he takes……………….

IT’S…..IT’S……OLLIE PEREZ…………………

Welllllllll Jeffey drops his Coke, Cotton Candy and his Mets Build A Bear. Ricco drops his Baseball General Managing for Dummies book and both men stare at the Mets manager as he stands on the top step of the dugout laughing his lame duck ass off.

For the first time in a month Ollie Perez takes off his Mets Snuggie to enter a game and throw live pitches. Oh and did Ollie ever throw a live pitch to Brian McCann. McCann just missed the first offering by OP, I guess he was still startled by the Resurrection but he made sure he got a hold of the next pitch and launched it over the right field wall for a home run. Ahhhhh so good to see Ollie hasn’t lost a step in his month layoff; if he’s anything, he is consistent. Of Perez’ 29 pitches 14 were K’s not bad. With only 17 home games left in this scintillating Mets season we can only hope that J-Man uses OP in a few of those games as Perez is such a fan fave we all want to express our feeling for him.

  1. One of your best. Listening to Howie get excited at simply seeing Perez warm up was great. When he actually got in the game it was unbelievable.

  2. Do the Mets realize that the Minor League teams are for developing players and not for just trading or cutting them?

  3. kranepool says:

    thank you Eagle I’m sure Howie nearly bit a hole in his tounge as he was biting it

    Peter wait until you see the parade down Stillwell Ave for the Cyclones when the cop the NY-PENN League crown

  4. A Mets’ fan guide to the Rays: A $70 Mil payroll (going back to $40 next year), not afraid to cut the deadwood (Pat Burell $7 Mil), It’s ok to make the 3rd out going 1st to 3rd, no batting practice (Maddon says it’s a waste of time near the end of the season),no set lineup, heavy platoon, no paid attendance, the Trop is a dump, & the survey found the worst food at any stadium in the USA. Best record in Baseball have the Runnin’ Rays.

  5. Krane- the Cyclones will always be good ’cause they’re “to close to home” to really suck. The papers will pay attention to them while ignoring the rest of the Farm System.
