A READING FROM THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET GEORGE YOUNG

When is a day off not a day off? When it comes at Christmas time that’s when. While I’m out at the most remote ass end of Staten Island at the Tar-GJAY (Target to the rest of you folks) buying video games for my kids and nieces and nephews when I heard that the Highlanders dropped a 7 yr/ $160 mil contract on Mr. Carsten Charles Sabathia who the baseball world lovingly calls C C . 

 

The Highlanders needed Sabathia desperately so desperately that they had to blow the Dodgers, Giants, Angles and Brewers out of the water with a mind boggling $160 mil. So much for his love of the Golden State as the former head of the NY Giants George Young always said “when they say it’s not about the money, it’s about the money” 

 

As ridiculous as the 23 mil a yr in salary is for C C what tops it on the crazy shit meter is the 7 yrs length of the deal. Sabathia is a rather large man who with this much coin will be a regular at the best dining establishments in NYC so if I were the Highlanders I’d work an advertising deal with NutriSystem very soon.

 

It’s not my money and all the Highlander fans who are rejoicing that Hal The Horse Whisper gave Pee Wee Cashman a blank check and an airline ticket and told him to “Get it done” better not bitch and moan when their game tickets go to $100 bucks for the upper deck and when you go to the concession stand and hand the cashier a 20 for a beer and hot dog and have her look at you as you come up short.

 

Do not forget tonight at a new time 8PM Joe McDonald and I will be back with another episode of Pro Baseball Central on Blog Talk Radio. Last night we covered the Francisco Rodriguez signing and the Mets outfield and a note to Joe Mac after further review I’m not happy with a Tatis/Murphy platoon in the outfield (if you want to be in on this click on the link and listen to last night show) plus tonight we will look at the next moves the Mets will make and discuss if it’s worth it for the Mets to even think of brining Petey back for a swan song tonight on Pro Baseball Central. 

 

Now I’m off to the Staten Island Mall, a place that ranks right up there with going to the dentist for a root canal and a trip for my yearly colonoscopy as my destinations of doom as I try to finish my Christmas shopping. Something tells me by 8 PM tonight I should be in some charming mood.

 

Oh shit,  I almost forgot tuning in to the Great Bloviator is a must today as he roast the living shit out of CC Sabathia last night I have got to hear how this wind bag tap dances today at 1:05PM also check out MikeFrancesa.com for some of the funniest commentary on the web.
