SATURDAY MUSINGS

Well the honeymoon between me and the Mets have hit its first rocky spot.  I don’t know whose ideas this was but it was beyond bad.  Instead of making lame video’s mocking BREAKING NEWS on SNY (please Kevin Burkhardt, tell me there was a rifle pointed at you as the reason you agreed to do this commercial) how about lowering the price of tickets and making some different ticket packages with decent discounts as a way to sell tickets. Oh even better , show a video of construction workers taking out the seats behind the plate that no one sits in and replacing them with a nice hard plastic seat, the kind YOUR REAL FAN BASE likes to park it’s ass in.

2yrs/$8mil for Pedro Feliciano? Congrats to you Perpetual Pedro for committing that heist.  Pee Wee Cashman has been exposed so far this off season, proving his can only strength as a GM is throwing stupid money at players. If I’m Andy Petitte, I ask for $30 Mil and a private plane that brings me home after my start and back again a day before my next one , odds are Pee Wee will give in.

I can’t believe I didn’t mention this week that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame finally got two things right. First, they finally voted Darlene Love into the Hall, an honor that was waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy overdue, then they denied Bon Jovi induction honors. That dreck that Bon Jovi spews is NOT Rock and Roll.

R.I.P. Don Van Vilet a/k/a Captain Beefheart

Let’s hope that Ollie Perez keeps up his sucky ways and gets his overdue release.

Can we please close the chapter of the Omar Minaya era. There is no need to give him a job in the organization just cut the check. The new administration talks about not being hamstrung in releasing people who are owed money, so prove it Omar, OP and Castillo need to go.

  1. Howard Glassman says:

    The Replacements are RnR HoF eligible. Just sayin’.

  2. You mean “If I can’t write a check” Cashman, has no idea about building a team, if he can’t over pay for every available superstar? Really? I am shocked. Three real contributors in his term from the farm system. The other “true” Yankees were all from Gene Michael.

    Lemme ask you something, babe;

    Would rather have Cashman as your GM or the moron who sat in that seat for the Shake Shakers?

    Don’t be so quick to fall for the bullshit that Sandy and his geeks have a plan. We’ll see soon enough. Won’t we, babe?

    Who’s got a happier fan base? Answer that one, babe?

  4. Darlene has been overlooked too damn long. I couldn’t agree more.

  5. Howard,

    I can’t figure out how the RnR HOF goes about it’s voting John Hiatt is not in nor is Little Feat or Lowell George mind boggling!

  6. Thanks for singing my tune, Steve. Some say “what’s the harm in giving Omar some minor role?” THERE’S A LOT OF HARM! First, you don’t get divorced and have your ex live in your house. You need a fresh start, a clean break. Every time his name is mentioned, and I mean every time, we think of Looie, Ollie, and no farm system (please don’t buy the hype that he left a good farm system, it’s still ranked in the lower half).

    GO AWAY AND STAY THERE, OMAR!

  7. Michael, you should have read enough replies by me, by now to know, one has nothing to do with the other. My disgust with Omar Minaya was well documented on this sites, as well as a few others. I have heard on more than one occasion what a great GM they have in the Bronx, and I say other than a checkbook, what evidence is there? Cano, Hughes, and a screwed up Chamberlain is all that the Cashman Era have produced. Gardner, who I like needs to do it for another year to go in the “plus” column. Happier? Yes, but also more spoiled. Won 95 games and lost in a long LCS after winning another championship, and all you heard was “Sign Lee AND Crawford”. Not going to be happy until there is an all-star at every position, and none of them home grown by this GM. Except the 2b.

    Rich, Mianaya is not the only reason the farm system is so barren. Go to the Mets website and check out their drafts since 2000…absolutely pathetic.

  8. Chicago has been long ovelooked for R&R HOF…. definately should have been in over Alice Cooper.

    Why does a Yankee fan have to respond every post you put up, are they that insecure that have to write 25 or the amount of title they won?

    Sir,

    The total is 27.

    My Very Best Wishes For The Holidays,

  10. Michael,

    In response to your question above, I’d rather have YOU as Mets GM than the moron who occupied the seat. And you strongly dislike the Shake Shackers.

    Rich,

    I’m flattered and will give it strong consideration.

    Happy Shake Shacking,

    Michael
