DON’T HATE ME BECAUSE I’M EXCITED ABOUT THE RULE V DRAFT

I had the pleasure of appearing on Mike Silva’s NY Baseball Talk show last night on Blog Talk Radio where we discussed the disconnect that some Mets have with reality.

The fact that I know who Boof Bonser is has impressed my friends.  Hey, we can’t neglect our Bisons now, can we?

The Mets selected 2B Brad Emaus from the Toronto Blue Jays (JP must know something here) and RHP Pedro Beato (FINALLY A MET!!!!) from the Baltimore Orioles in the Rule V draft. Emaus has some power and is built like Dan Uggla, so I guess throw Emaus name in the 2B competition this spring. Beato was drafted by the Mets in 2007 as a draft and follow and tried to sign him for $1mil in 2008 but the Commissioner’s office advised against spending that money on a 15th round pick. Beato went back into the draft was taken by the O’s and given the same $1mil the Mets were willing to give out. Oh well, Beato born in the DR was is a Brooklyn boy as he excelled at Xaverian H.S. in beautiful Bay Ridge Brooklyn.

Looks like Ken Oberkfell will be rewarded with the position as Terry Collins consigliere, good to have Obie on board.

Word on the street is Johan Santana won’t be ready to pitch for the Mets until June. No problem. What I’m curious about is how the manager and GM handle the everyday questions about Santana. I’m hoping they address it in spring and inform the MSM that the next time you hear about Johan is when he’s ready to join the big league. Let’s concentrate on the living.

So the Highlanders look ready to shit their pants and offer Cliff Lee a 7 year deal. The kicker will be if the Rangers make a play of 6yrs and sweeten the dough, what will Lee do? Now that Carl Crawford will be grazing in the left field of Fenway Park , the Red Sox have to be favored to win the AL East with that potent lineup and terrific pitching, Lee has the Boss’s Boys by the balls. Yes, I fuckin’ love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    

We will now have a moment of silence to mourn the death of #Frenchtober

  1. Krane, likewise I am very happy about Emaus. Finally we have a GM that is willing to look at other people besides his own ethnicity. This guy could be a sleeper. I am not a Murphy fan at all but if this guy can platoon with Murph at 2b we may have 300 avg. 20 HRs and 100 RBI’s out of our 2b position. Something that has been missing for years. Get the Beltran situation fixed now and Im happy. I could care less about Ollie or Castillo those situations will take care of themselves.

  2. I don’t know if Murphy will be a good second baseman, as a matter of fact, I think he probably isn’t, but I know he will chew his face off to win. Not enough of that on this team.

  3. Looks like the Angels might get shut out from all the big names. What are the odds that we can do some biz with them?

  4. Krane, you can email the Mutts and ask SA a questionhe will answer, allegedly ! of course, the chance that he will field a tough question is about the same as Johan making 30 starts…Beltran I really think is still with the team in March.

  5. “So the Highlanders look ready to shit their pants and offer Cliff Lee a 7 year deal. The kicker will be if the Rangers make a play of 6yrs and sweeten the dough, what will Lee do?

    I guess this represents some sort of victory for the Pepsi Porchers in a winter of idleness and penny pinching.
