Seems I have two allies in the Skill Sets Stay Home camp in Bob Klapish and Harvey Aarton. After that stellar performance by Jeffy Skill Sets yesterday, Freddy Skill Sets will address the media this morning at St. Lonesome.
Freddy will say that he was duped by Madoff and he is hurt by the betrayal and he never saw it coming and he will not sell the team and the team will be in the Skill Set family for generations (just like this blog, I want my grandchildren and great grandchildren to carry on my tradition of poor taste and over use of profanity) and this will not affect the team and by the way, did I tell you we have one of the highest payrolls in baseball? In other words there will be nothing of substance said at the sunrise sermon. Even more reason for Freddy and Jeffy to keep their ass’ home.
Ed Marcus/Rusty Jr comes out with a stunner at #20 in top 50 Mets of all time countdown.
With all my ranting on the Skill Sets setting up their circus tent in St Lonesome, I forgot to comment on the return of Izzy. Izzy flashed some talent when he was a Mets as part of the Generation K trio of Bill Pulsipher, Paul Wilson and Izzy but he was really immature. Now at 38 years old and success as a closer and a rebuilt Tommy John-ed elbow, who knows, maybe he finds what he left in St. Louis. Year after TJ surgery/past success/works cheap this is the new undervalued commodity in this Sandy Alderson Production.
By the way, Izzy was given #45. OUCH!!! Sorry Johnny.
