Price cialis Murray Chass The Jack Ass-curotsy of

Price cialis I received a link today of a post that Murray Chass (the big dumb ass) wrote about Bobby Valentine and how he can’t stand BV and BV couldn’t stand him either. Price cialis Chass it seems felt it was his duty to call Larry Lucchino the Red Sox CEO, price cialis to find out how the Sox managerial search was going. Price cialis I guess after screaming at his grand kids and staring out the window for hours making sure no one parked their car in front of his house, price cialis Chass decided he needed to know if Bobby Valentine was THE GUY the Sox were ready to hire as their field boss.

Price cialis From reading the post it’s clear Chass has an agenda, price cialis in fact since Chass was canned by the NY Times he’s had a hard on for lot of people and he’s in denial that he has gone from being the National baseball writer for the Old Grey Lady to a blogger . Price cialis Chass will never identify himself as a blogger but that’s all in the denial side of his old ass life. Price cialis Anyway, price cialis Chass has gone and dug up gossip and innuendo from Valentine’s days as Mets manager using the one player that Valentine really had no use for, price cialis Todd Hundley to make his case but back to Chass calling Lucchino. Price cialis The Sox CEO told Chass that Valentine had a great interview and then wanted to know what Chass thought of BV, price cialis I’ll let Chass tell you in his own words his feelings on Bobby V:

Price cialis I would rather not have people I am interviewing ask me questions. Price cialis In this instance what I thought about Valentine or any other candidate shouldn’t matter. Price cialis I am not the one hiring and paying the new manager.

Price cialis On the other hand, price cialis Lucchino asked a reasonable question, price cialis and the primary problem I had with it was whether I should offer some vague, price cialis non-committal comment or answer honestly. Price cialis Of course, price cialis I chose honesty because I expect honest answers from the people I question.

Price cialis “I have found him to be the most disliked man in baseball, price cialis” I said. Price cialis And I added, price cialis “He doesn’t like me and I don’t like him.”

Price cialis I didn’t offer any details, price cialis but if Lucchino wants to know why I made those statements, price cialis I will enlighten him here, price cialis which is a more appropriate place for a reporter or columnist than the telephone. Price cialis

Price cialis One thing we know about Valentine is there is no middle ground when it pertains to how people feel about him. Price cialis I admit to be being a big fan of his but I can see how his personality could grate on one’s nerves if you had to deal with him on an everyday basis but what I take issue with Chass is his view of Valentine is personal not business. Price cialis  No place in his column does Chass give Valentine credit for being an outstanding bench manager. Price cialis  You can hate the guys guts but you lose credibility when he don’t acknowledge that Valentine gets more out of what he’s given than anyone in baseball. Price cialis   

Price cialis Chass really embarrasses himself when he critiques Valentine’s managerial record by harping on the fact his teams never had a first place finish:

Price cialis Valentine undoubtedly talks a good game; that’s why ESPN hired him. Price cialis But ESPN doesn’t have to worry about a won-lost record. Price cialis While it’s a fact that Valentine managed the Mets to two consecutive wild-card berths in 1999 and 2000 and the World Series in 2000, price cialis it’s also a fact that in 14 years with the Rangers and the Mets he never managed a team that finished in first place.

Price cialis  

Price cialis Presumably, price cialis the Red Sox, price cialis who have not participated in post-season games the last two years, price cialis have studied Valentine’s history (and not just tested his knowledge of Jamesian sabermetrics) and know that he ranks third in history among managers who have managed the most games without finishing in first place.

Price cialis  

Price cialis Valentine took over a Mets team in 1996 that had stopped to listening to Dallas Green whose method of motivation was to scream at his players “to look in the mirror” and man up. Price cialis Valentine’s main strength was getting the most out of his 25 man roster but he had to deal with a few clubhouse lawyers who became very comfortable living the high life in the Shea Stadium clubhouse one in particular was Todd Hundley. Price cialis I’ll get to Hundley in a minute, price cialis Chass just kind of glosses over the fact the Valentine won a pennant with the Mets and if not for the shit the bed performance by Kenny Rogers would have had back to back pennants under his belt. Price cialis Someday Chass should let us know what he thinks of Bobby Cox whose teams finished in first place 14 times but has one World Series flag to fly? What about the greatest manager to ever put a pen to a lineup card Tony LaRussa, price cialis winning a World Series with a wild card team?  What Chass doesn’t get is all you have to do is get in the tournament, price cialis who cares how you got there? I’m sure there isn’t a Cardinals fan out there complaining how their favorite team got to post season as they are reveling in their successful post season tour.

Price cialis Back to Todd Hundley, price cialis it was no secret back then that Valentine wasn’t a fan of Hundley and Hundley felt the same about BV.  Hundley talks about his relationship with Valentine:

Price cialis  In Hundley’s view, price cialis the problem with Valentine began when the manager appeared to be jealous of the player’s standing with the fans. Price cialis ”He comes into a whole new situation and goes right after I guess the most popular guy, price cialis” Hundley said. Price cialis ”It’s not my fault I’m the most popular guy.”

Price cialis Hundley was especially upset at the timing of Valentine’s comments on his sleep habits because his mother was being treated for cancer and his wife was pregnant.

Price cialis ”I’m talking to my mom while she’s going through chemotherapy, price cialis” Hundley said, price cialis ”and I’m helping my wife with taking care of our two kids and he’s saying I’m out and about.”   

Price cialis  

Price cialis It’s true that Valentine gave a”wink-wink, price cialis nod-nod” statement about Hundley not getting enough sleep which was Valentine speak for Hundley being a hard partying guy. Price cialis I have no proof that he was or wasn’t but I’m sure it was the manager sending a message to a player and the player reacted negatively. Price cialis If it’s true that Hundley wasn’t getting sleep due to worrying about his mom and wife then Valentine was dead wrong to bring that up but what we saw with Hundley was he was not a true team player. Price cialis When Mike Piazza was brought over from the Marlins it was Hundley who was affected the most and it hurt Hundley to no end that Piazza was coming to the Mets and was the new starting catcher. Price cialis Hundley felt he was the most popular Met (I think Bernard Gilkey, price cialis Lance Johnson and of course Edgardo Alfonso were right there as popular Mets) but now with a super star like Piazza on the team he had to take a back seat in fact he had to find a whole new place to play, price cialis as Hundley was exiled to left field. Price cialis  That’s when Hundley ceased being a Met. Price cialis His play on the outfield was one of indifference; you knew his Mets days were over. Price cialis Was Valentine the reason? Maybe part of it but the mostly it was the acquisition of Piazza that was Hundley’s problem.

Price cialis Without a doubt Valentine is a very polarizing person, price cialis but he has a track record of turning teams around when he occupies the mangers office. Price cialis I’m not sure that Valentine is the guy to run the Red Sox bench as I feel their problems run a lot deeper in that clubhouse but you know the Red Sox will be prepared and they will be interesting. Price cialis  Valentine vs. Price cialis the Boston Media will a show all by itself.

What Is Better Viagra Or Levitra generic viagra generic viagra Well hopefully the fan base as calmed a bit now that the new field boss is in place and the GM is telling you for the umpteenth time that the Mets will not be big players in the free agent game but I still think that Alderson & Co. generic viagra will pull off a major trade this offseason. generic viagra I would not be shocked to see Jose Reyes playing elsewhere in 2011, generic viagra with teams like the Giants, generic viagra Red Sox, generic viagra D-Backs (if they trade Stephen Drew) and the Rays looking for shortstop help, generic viagra I’m sure the GM’s of those teams have Sandy Alderson on speed dial.  While Reyes did not have a great season in 2010, generic viagra I’m sure the Giants or Red Sox would bet that he’ll bounce back and at one year and $11 mil it might be worth it for them to make an offer. generic viagra If you could get a starting pitcher and some prospects for Reyes, generic viagra you have to think about pulling the trigger on a deal. generic viagra Adam Rubin has the info on Ollie Perez start last night for Culiacan of the Mexican Winter League. generic viagra Seems Ollie had a good night with four scoreless innings. generic viagra His trade value has never been higher! generic viagra Can we forget about all this Jeter to the Mets or Jeter to the Red Sox (that would be a dream come true) or Jeter to anyplace else but the Bronx. generic viagra   Jeter has two choices, generic viagra sign with the Highlanders or retire. generic viagra I doubt he’s ready to hang up his limited range as he nears 3, generic viagra000 hits and it’s clear the message being sent is like a store saying we will beat any competitors  prices, generic viagra Pee Wee Cashman has laid down the challenge if you can get better than 3yrs/$45 mil take it. generic viagra  It is shocking though that a player like Jeter, generic viagra who the Highlander hierarchy have built up over the years like a figure out of Greek mythology, generic viagra now treat him like an aging beauty queen. generic viagra I had a great time last night talking to Doug Gladstone, generic viagra author of Bitter Cup of Coffee and former Mets outfielder George Theodore , generic viagra check out the show here at the show page or here at Kranepool Society on the lower right side bar.

Viagra Fun

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Now that the Mets have a GM in place and ready to roll, canadian pharmacy viagra legal the next step seems to be hiring a manager (although Sandy Alderson seems to want his Cabinet in place first as we hear his wish list of Lieutenants include J.P. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Riccardi, canadian pharmacy viagra legal Paul DiPodesta and Grady Fuson all outstanding candidates) and from looking around the Mets blogisphere there is great discussion on who that hire should be.

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal There are Wally Backman supporters as well as Backman detractors. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal There are folks pushing a Chip Hale regime (which I’m starting to sway over to) and there are Lee Mazzilli fans as well (which I can not fathom) then there is a candidate that we can agree on none of us want (Bob Melvin) and one the majority of us want (Bobby Valentine) but that won’t happen either.

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal So who do you support as the next field boss of the NY Mets? Alderson said all the right things on Friday about finding a man to fit this job. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal He acknowledged that a guy like Art Howe is totally wrong for this team and this city. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal He likes the fiery kick ass type (don’t we all?) but at the same time he has to be on board with the organizational philosophy and be that philosophy’s messenger. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal The manger must have the savvy to handle the pressure of the day in day out media, canadian pharmacy viagra legal which I feel will be a huge issue in the interview process as Alderson saw first hand the amount of media that covers baseball in this town on Friday. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal With all that, canadian pharmacy viagra legal the manager must have the respect and attention of his players and the ability to keep an even personality through goods times and bad and to instill confidence in his team. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal That to me was Jerry Manuel’s biggest failure as Mets manager. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal The stars of this team have a low level of self esteem and were too high after wins and too dejected after losses, canadian pharmacy viagra legal so the next manger has to be a part-time psychologists as well. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal It’s not a job for a rank amateur.

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal John Gibbons saw that and removed his name from consideration. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Bobby Valentine would be perfect for the job but there is just too much ego for him to succeed under this regime. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal I really hope that Alderson doesn’t ruin the honeymoon by even thinking about Bob Melvin, canadian pharmacy viagra legal a younger version of Art Howe who would be eaten alive by the MSM, canadian pharmacy viagra legal bloggers and this knee jerk fan base. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal So who does it leave?

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal I was a gung ho Backman guy but I can see the point to the anti-Backman crowd as to the overload of hero worship that goes toward anyone who played for the 1986 World Champion Mets. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal I’m as much to blame for that as anyone; it was great time to be a Mets fan. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Al of us from that era thought this was beginning of a Mets Dynasty. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal It never happened. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal No need for revisionist history here. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal What makes us fans that are Ga-Ga over the 86ers is the fact that we want to relive the 80’s again especially my shoulder length hair (did I just type that out loud?) when the Mets were Kings and maybe we think a Backman managerial stewardship would do that? There is no job Backman wants more than the Mets managers job and it’s problems from his personal life that have kept him from a big league job but after watching him in Brooklyn last year it will be interesting to see how well he interviews for the job.

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal As I said I was a strong Backman supporter but lately I’m more and more intrigued by both Ken Oberfell and Chip Hale. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Just like Backman these men have paid their dues in baseball. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Both men have won at all levels of the game. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Both are strong in the fundamentals department and have the respect of their players. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Now do they have the ability to deal with the day to day bullshit that comes with the job, canadian pharmacy viagra legal well unless Sandy Alderson would like to invite me to join him in the interview process, canadian pharmacy viagra legal I don’t know.

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Terry Collins is another candidate I’ve heard mentioned but he might be better suited for player development role. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal Clint Hurdle’s name has come up as well and he would fit the personality part of the job but he seems to be a long shot in my book.

Canadian pharmacy viagra legal The best part of this whole procedure of hiring a manager is that I have total confidence in the man doing the hiring. Canadian pharmacy viagra legal I haven’t had this much confidence in a Mets GM since Frank Cashen ran the club and wait didn’t he run the club in 1986?
