WHAT, NO DONUTS?

I work in a satellite office of the Agency I work for so when the big brass come for a visit it’s not to see if we have enough Deer Park for our water cooler no, it’s usually for something we fucked up because when you do something right, it never gets acknowledged, but when they do come a callin’ they always bring coffee and donuts. It kind of softens the blow of getting our ass reamed out. Yesterday the Mets Brass led by the biggest Ass decided to go to Atlanta to tear the manger, coaches and players a new asshole but not only did those folks mentioned leave with their rectums intact, the cheap fuck Jeffey didn’t even bring donuts.

Speculation ran rampant through the Land of Blue and Orange that Jerry Manuel, HoJo and Old School Werthen were ready to get pink slipped because why else would the Little Shithead make a trip down South right. Well, not only did no one lose their job, the manager displayed what he thinks of the owner and baseball ops when he came out of his office after the 90 minute meeting and was as asked if he still had a job by replying “I still got my uniform on right” and then gave that laugh that only J-Man can. Right there an owner with balls would have said to take the fucking uni off and go home.

Not only that, Jeffey Skill Sets didn’t even address the team. It seem most players either didn’t know or care that the owner, the GM and Asst’ GM (John Rico) were in the house. It would have made a huge statement if Jeffey called Oliver Perez out in the clubhouse and handed him his unconditional release and then look a GMJ and tell him “Oh and here is one for you too” and then give Jeff Francouer a look and say “you’re lucky that F-Mart kid is made of paper mache or I’d have one for you too” but again that would take a man with balls, with conviction, with leadership three things non-existent in the Mets organization. By the way, good seats still available for this weekends Subway Series at $iti Field

One good thing came out the pow-wow was sending Jenry Mejia down to the minors to stretch out his arm to join the starting rotation sometime this summer. Another experiment gone wrong.

Want a job at WFAN ? Requirments are you must have absolutely no knowledge of sports. Last night on Twitter, Sal Licatta, who’s job it is to fetch Mike Francesa his Diet Cokes, Tweeted that the Mets and Highlanders should make a deal, the Mets send Vitamin Pedro to the Bronx for Ramiro Pena. This caused quite the shitstorm as Mets fans gave Licatta a verbal beat down, and unlike his Pompus Ass Boss, Licatta could not hand wave them away. Stick to being Francesa’ toady Sal.

WTF?

You can’t help it; it’s just an affliction of watching a lot of Mets games. People who never utter a curse word in their life say it. Rabbi’s in Williamsburg who are so strict to their religion that the site of the young hipsters who have taken over their neighborhood, riding bikes and putting up billborads of sexy people that cause them outrage say it. Little kids say it and the one the holiest man it the world said it to via telephone last night.

 

Kranepool Society: “YELLLLLLLLLOWWWWWWWW”

 

Caller:  How are you my son it’s Benedict

 

KS:  POPE BENIDCIT???????????? How are you your holiest?

 

Pope: I am good my son I’m checking on you.

 

KS: One me? Why? Did you have a vision?  Am I in danger?

 

Pope: Well when I saw you at Highlander Stadium you know you stood out to me.

 

KS: <chuckling> Yes I know, it’s not everyday you get asked to bless a Billy Wagner Bobble head <chuckling>

 

Pope: <laughing> very true my son and I am sorry about that blessing I think it was the Deer Park water I used as I usually go with the Pellegrino water for blessings.

 

KS : Hey you make do with what ya got but again why are you checking on me?

 

Pope: We got a new DirecTV system here in the Vatican and it came with the Extra Innings package and I must say I have grown found of the NY Mets. I remembered you as a Mets blogger and I figured you would be the one to ask?

 

KS: What is your question your Holy Father?

 

Pope: The bullpen. WHAT THE FUCK?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

There you have it even a holy man like Benny 16 can’t control himself.

 

It’s not so much What the Fuck there are a few Where the Fucks in there as well. Like where the fuck is Al Reyes and Ricardo Rincon and Bobby Parnell? It looks like Brain Stokes and Luis Ayala have lost a bit of the magic dust that was on them when  the bullpen went on it best streak of the year a few weeks ago so I’m just wondering why Al Reyes and Ricardo Rincon have not been used as of yet? J-Man? Anything?

 

Have you seen the list of items up for sale as the going out of business sale at Shea rolls on?  Anything from sacred artifacts like World Series Banners and the retired numbers to napkin holders to men’s rooms signs are for sale but as I pursued the list and a few things I was looking for were not listed like:

 

The still that Casey Stengel had to make his moonshine in the manager’s office.

 

The alleged secret sex tape showing M. Donald Grant all over Joan Whitney Payson’ assets.

 

Nelson Doubleday’s liver

 

The leftover programs from Richie Hebner Appreciation Night

 

The Lorne Brown Memorial Bathroom Stall Door

 

The mummified corpse of Art Howe

 

Rick Petersons bong

 

Gregg Jefferies diaper bag

 

The mirror that Dallas Green told his players to look in

 

The 5 year contract the Mets were ready to give Mac Scarce

 

Steve Phillips’ condom stash

 

Fran Healy’ can of corn

 

Vince Coleman’ Good Guy Award

 

Jay Horowitz little black book of super models phone numbers he’s dated

 

SPOLIER ALERT: I know the ending of tonight’s Mets-Nats game STOP READING IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The bullpen blows it.
