JOSE REYES IS “THE MAN”

As sick and tired as I am of the Alex Rodriguez Steroid Family Reunion and all the rehashed stories and the weeping willows who are worried about “The Records” during this scandalous time, I am more worn out about “who is the team to beat” bullshit between the Mets and Quakers. For the Mets, stop saying we are the team to beat because you haven’t done anything that needs beating. To the Phillies, get over your New York envy, no matter how much Extenze you folks ingest you’re still from Philadelphia and we here in NYC live in the greatest city on the planet and mine is bigger than yours. But you have something we don’t and that’s the 2008 World Series Trophy. So what we have is a stalemate. You have no response when I tell you my city is better than your city and I have to clam up when you tell me my team choked. So let’s bury the hatchet Phillie fans but not in each others back.

 

So far Jerry Manuel’ psychological warfare has proven positive as Jose Reyes reacted to vacating the leadoff spot like a professional and an adult and Gimp Castillo says he feels good as new and he worked hard all winter at the Mets Academy in the DR (hopefully not Rodriguez family members were around the compound) and wants to prove to Mets fans that he is worth the dough the Mets are paying him. Ken Davidoff asks the question, “Will you boo Luis Castillo on opening day”? I know I won’t as I’ve said I’m not a boo-er, that’s why I love blogging saves me the exertions of screaming and booing and it’s much cheaper than therapy.

 

Matt Cerrone is in Pt St Lonesome and this morning he was at the local Dunkin’ Dounts when you do you think was behind him in line but none other than Jeffey Skill Set. I guess the Madoff Scandal is worse than we thought, Jeffey slumming in DD’s with the great unwashed” (not you Matt, I know you’re cleaner than the Bd. of Health, you’re at the Double D because you are a man of the people and yes those Waffle sandwiches are to die for)    

 

Ken Davidoff has a Jan Brady complex scenario with the Mets as it pertains to co-existing in this town with the Highlanders. It crossed my mind with all the Alex Rodriguez hula-baloo; imagine if the Mets had signed Manny Ramirez on the day Rodriguez held his presser? The WFAN transmitter would have blown up. I would have typed up a post that would make War and Peace look like a novella. The Mets would have sold so many tickets that could have saved money on their phone bill from calling me asking me to buy a seasons ticket every other day. In other words the Mets would have set this town on fire but like Davidoff said that would be more Marcia than Jan.

 

Bart Hubbuch has pics of the patch that will be on the caps the Mets will wear this season. It’s not the best shot of the patches but from the view Hubbuch gives us it’s about 1,000,000 better than that generic patch on the uni sleeve.

 

Don’t forget tonight is Pro Baseball Central at 9PM EST with our guests Rich Coutinho of 1050 ESPN Radio and Martin Gandy of the Atlanta Braves blog Talking-Chop. You can join in the conversation as well at (646) 595-4462
