LOOK AT LIKE THIS OMIR, IT DOESN’T SNOW THAT MUCH IN BUFFALO IN APRIL

Poor Omir Santos, the guy shows up early to camp looks around at the large stable of catchers the Mets accumulated over the winter and thinks to himself  “none of those guys have anything on me”  Well sorry to burst your bubble Senior Santos but the only squating behind the plate you’re going to be doing is in the International League backing up Josh Thole.

The Mets reach a deal with Rod Barajas for a base of $1mil with incentives that could double his contract.  Barajas and Henry Blanco are now the top battery mates for Mets pitchers and both are a huge upgrade defensively from last years broken down model of Brian Schneider, ShrekNinja Turtle and Santos.

Remember at the end of the season J-Man and Old School Warthen put alot of the blame of the inability of the Mets pitchers to cut down on walks and not hit their spots consistently on the catching corp.

Give the Mets some love here as the got Barajas for their price and upgraded the catching position as well

I’M SO THANKFUL I’M NOT A J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS FAN

Most people I meet assume that I am a JETS fan because I’m a METS fan so I guess they figure since my summers get ruined they assume I enjoy fucked up winters as well. No way as my pro football team of choice is of course The New York Football Giants and after watching the J-E-T-S pull a 2007 Mets like gag I wonder how long it would take me to suck the gas pipe if I were a Jets/Mets fan.

I know there a alot of you out there afflicted with Jets/Mets and I feel for you guys I really do but don’t worry come April the Mets will start a new season and from what I know of the J-E-T-S they thrive in April at the NFL Draft.    

Remember in the words of Felix Unger, never assume as you make an ass out of u and me.
