HEY MIKEY, WHADDA YA SAY, WADDA YA KNOW?

 

So the whole world of Metsdom is in an uproar due to the proclamation from the Drive Time Bloviator on WFAN that he has some major update about our favorite baseball team. So what could this major update be?

 

Well, I speculated on Twitter last night, that the team is in talks with Bombo Rivera to make a comeback and man left field. Rivera has Expo blood in him so that’s enticing to Omar.

 

Or it might be that Frank McCourt, the owner of the Los Angles Dodgers of Brooklyn, who is in a nasty divorce with Madame Jamie, needing cash will sell the name DODGERS to the Skill Sets who will finally get their wish to own the Dodgers.

 

Then again it could be that the Skill Sets have decided to have the team take a year off and cancel all plans to field a team in 2010. $iti Field will then be turned into a combination Chuck-E-Cheese/Catering hall to be rented out for birthdays, weddings and bar mitzvahs.

 

Who knows? Only the Pontiff Mike knows.

LET ME GET A THERA-FLU COCKTAIL WITH A NYQUIL CHASER

I’m home today still sick but I’m sure I’ll be fine tomorrow just in time to shovel about 7 inches of snow that’s supposed to hit NYC.

After waking up from a Nyquil stupor I was perusing the ‘net for Mets stories and of course my first stop was Mathew Cerrone’s Metsblog, in which a few posts had me thinking:

It’s about time for the Mets and Omar Minaya to call Jason Bay’ bluff. Tell him and his agent “here’s the deal 4yrs/$68-70mil take it or leave it” then give him 48 hrs to decide. If he can get more from this mystery team that’s out there, so be it. Time for the Mets to man up and let Bay take them for assholes.

Same thing with Bengi Molina. There is no team in any baseball league-MLB, Japanese League, Little League, or Men’s Sunday softball league , that will give Bengi a 3 yr deal. Again Omar needs to make a take it or leave it 2yr deal an if Molina balks then go to Rod Barajas or Miguel Olivo (two better choices ) or go with the Blanco/Santos later in the year Josh Thole catching troika. 3 yrs for Bengi Moilina? Keep dreaming

Good to see that the Mets are taking my advice and speaking to the Cincinnati Red Stockings about Aaron Harang and or Bronson Arroyo. This wanna be GM’ing is tough so how about a finders fee to me Jeffey?

It’s amazing that the Jose Reyes/Mike Francesa sit down from Wednesday is still getting so much buzz. Reyes handled himself beautifully with the FAN Bloviator as he let his personality and passion show thru. Instead of hearing from second and third sources we heard right from the shortstops mouth that he never had a problem with Willie Randolph and understood full why he was benched for non-hustle and the fact that he wanted to come back to play so badly last year that he injured himself more. Reyes also said his personality is what it is and he’s not about to change and he told it like it is about the handshakes and celebrating, how what he does is tame to what other teams do. The sad part of the interview was Francesa telling the audience that he had to plead with the Mets to let Reyes come on with him. It just shows how out of touch management is. Reyes and Jeff Francouer have done more for goodwill amongst the fan base this week that even the incompetent Jeffey Skill Sets should be able to see that but I may be asking for too much.

HEY JERRY, HOW MUCH IS THAT DOGGIE IN THE WINDOW

J-Man was on the air with the Big Bloviator on WFAN and Manuel claims he has no dog house and that he and Ryan Church have no problems whatsoever in fact Church is the only player that gets J-Man as his private batting practice pitcher. I believe that like I believe Drew Petersen’ wives are all at the mall shopping.

Also in the interview J-Man said he is very tough on Carlos Beltran in fact he claimed he is tougher on Beltran than any other player. Manuel took up the defense for Jose Reyes as the Bloviator called Reyes lazy. This from a guy who has to count to three to get up out of a chair.

Manuel went on to say that the team is now David Wrights team with Delgado on the shelve.

and the news of the day was the Daniel Murphy as a LF’er is no more. He will now play first base and get a chance to prove he should not be in Manuel’ non-existent Chateau de Bow Wow

Hear the interview here at WFAN

IS LOWE AND O.P. PIE IN THE SKY FOR THE METS?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m having my living room torn apart and a massive redesign so between the noise, the clutter of furniture, debris and taking down Christmas decorations I’m sneaking in a post before the workers come back from lunch so just a quickie for today

Looks like the free agent market is starting to flow a bit with word that Omar and Scott Boras will sit down for lunch today and discuss Derek Lowe and Ollie P (you would think with all the fan pressure and media pressure even the Great Bloviator Francesa is on our side that the  Mets should find a way to get Manny Ramirez that the Skill Sets would let Omar even discuss it with Boras.) It looks like Omar wants to get his pitching in a row as he has offered deals to Tim Redding and is getting ready for Randy Wolf as the word is Mets pitchers and catchers are to report to St Lonesome on Feb 13.

A must read today is Curt Schillings 38 Pitches blog where he destroys Dan Shaughnessy of the Globe even using his “CHB” (Curly Haired Boyfriend) nickname. I hope Bob Ryan can give Shaughnessy some help getting the broom stick Schilling stuck up his ass removed

Remember tomorrow night at 9 EST Pro Baseball Central back on the air with the first show of ’09

HEY COLE HAMELS, DUH?

What I’m  supposed to get upset over Cole Hamels going on WFAN and calling the Mets “choke artists” ? Hey I’d love to sit here and call Hamels a no good cheesesteak eating douchebag from is depressing shithole of a city but it’s not doing any good for me or you or any other Mets fan to get pissed off about this awful label our beloved Metsies have been saddled with.

Non other than the fabulous Darryl Strawberry who was on with the Great Bloviator on WFAN this afternoon said as much when Hamels remarks we played. When asked by Mean Mike what would the 86ers have done with Hamels for making a remark like that about them he wasted no time in saying a fastball to ear and  good old fashion ass kicking would be the first order of business.

Unfournately the Mets have no one who would step up and  whizz  a fastball in anger at an oppenent so all we can hope for is that the next time Hamels in NYC he spits on the sidewalk or jay walks as he could find a radio antenna soved up his ass.

LET’S TAKE OUR NEXT CALL, JEFFEY FROM FLUSHING YOU’RE ON THE FAN

Taking time out from counting the receipts from the luxury suites at the new Skill Set Pleasure Palace Jeffey Skill Sets came on WFAN with the Francesa the Bloviator to what was about 10 minutes of nothing.

Jeffey was happy that the Mets have re-upped with the WFAN and Francesa then morphed into a persona that resembled his ex-partner and gave Jeffey a thorough tounge bath saying how WFAN and the Mets have been long time partners and how the station is glad to have the team on it’s air waves and on and on. Jeffy said the organization is happy as well as Mets fan always know what station their on all the time but he would not state the real reason that the Mets stayed with the FAN and that’s all the dead presidents the station is paying them for the radio rights. So when the Bloviator asked about changes to the team Jeffey claims that Omar has total control over personnel and that their is no set budget. Jeffey did seem a perturbed that the Famous Rays with a payroll of about the price of two luxury suites are in the World Series and his team with one of the highest payrolls in the game are home watching on TV.

The bulk of the interview was all about &iti Field and the dismantling of Shea which should be an empty lot by January.
