HE CAME FROM PLANET HIRAM

If the Hiram Monserrate assault on his girlfirend was wild enough (Monserrate claims he tripped with a glass in his hand and that was what caused his squeeze face to look like a Rawlings baseball) it is now out that Hiram was given a “psychological pension” from the NYPD AND he worships  at the Church of Battlestar Gallactica.

My only hope is that some way some how Monserrate and Bernie Madoff share a cell in prison and stab each other over who fucked over the Skill Sets more.

HIRAM MONSERRATE IS PRESIDENT OF THE BRETT MYERS FAN CLUBR

Remember our favorite scumbag local politician Hiram Monserrate of Queens, the City Councilman who was against the redevelopment of Willets Point and the guy who was strong arming money and favor from the Mets in order to get his YEA vote on the building of $iti Field ? Well it seems ol’ Hiram is in the news again this time not for bullying around the Mets but for ALLEDGEDLY kicking the living shit out of girlfriend:

{City Councilman Hiram Monserrate, a Queens Democrat who was elected to the State Senate last month, was arrested and charged with assault early Friday morning in connection with an injury to his girlfriend, law enforcement officials said.

Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s top spokesman, said that Mr. Monserrate had been arrested and charged with assault in the first degree.

Officials said that Mr. Monserrate, 41, had taken his girlfriend, Karla Giraldo, 30, toLong Island Jewish Medical Center with what appeared to be a serious injury in or around her left eye.

Ms. Giraldo told hospital staff members that it was Mr. Monserrate who had assaulted her, officials said. It appeared that she had been punched and slashed in or around her left eye with a shard of glass, and officials said it took 20 to 40 stitches to close the wound. A doctor at the hospital, which straddles the border between Queens and Nassau County, called the police at 4:50 a.m.

New York City police detectives arrived at the hospital, arrested Mr. Monserrate and took him to a Queens precinct house for questioning. The episode occurred in Mr. Monserrate’s apartment, at 37-20 83rd Street in Jackson Heights, officials said.}

This is so nasty and vile that I can’t even crack wise about it. But the saddest part of this story is the girlfriend did not wish to press charges against this ALLEDGED animal.

THE REDEVELOPMENT OF WILLETS POINT IS IN THE HANDS OF THE DEN OF THIEVES

 

Outstanding article in the New York Observer on the obstacles in allowing the city to get started on the redevelopment of Willets Point as to add more to the $iti Field experience  and make the area one where you would stay at after a Mets game. As it is now the pre and post game rituals of Mets fans will be the same even with the new ball park as the area around it offers nothing in the way of restaurants, bars or shopping. I have yet to meet any Mets fans who say “hey let’s hang out in Corona after the game”  it’s more “let’s get to the city, pronto”. So it would be a no brainer to support a plan that would bring much needed dollars into the community to make the Willets Point like a mini Baltimore Inner Harbor where baseball fans would come  even tourists, to get a look and tour of $iti Field and spend money in bussiness located in this village type atmosphere. But then again it looks like greased palms wins over common sense when it comes to the Den of Thieves a/k/a The NYC City Council as we see with our old pal Councilman Hiram Monserrate and his reasons for supporting the chop hop owners:

{The landowners have also been prolific donors to council members from Queens, spreading, according to campaign filings, more than $111,000 between just eight candidates for city office in 2009: Comptroller Bill Thompson and council members David Weprin, Peter Vallone Jr., Eric Gioia, Melinda Katz, Helen Sears, Tony Avella, and Mr. Liu. The local councilman, Mr. Monserrate, has received more than $50,000 from Willets Point business owners in his bid for a State Senate seat next month.}

and of course Monserrate is not just getting that tribute he also playing pocket pool with the biggest property owner in the Iron Triangle,  Tully Environmental: 

{Key to winning Council support, multiple people familiar with discussions said, is the fate of the largest landowner at the site, Tully Environmental. Relocation would likely be difficult for a property owner of Tully’s size, and the firm has been the most active campaign contributor of any of the landowners to local elected officials. The firm, along with other companies listed with the same address, has targeted Mr. Monserrate above the other elected officials, putting at least $22,500 toward his Senate campaign, according to campaign filings.}

I would love to know how much the Skill Sets had to pony up to Monserrate’s campaign fund to get the ok for the building of $iti Field?

DEADLOCKED

 

 

 

 

Ahhhhhhhhh NOMAH, YOU ARE ONE MAGNIFICANT BASTARD!!!!!!

 

With all our problems with the bullpen here we are on August 14th in a tie for first place in the NL East. What a great night to be a Mets fan after a few night of agita. Gary and Mex were cracking wise on TV. Howie Rose and Wayne Hagin were serenading their listeners with TV Theme songs:

 

There’s a hold up in the Bronx,

Brooklyn’s broken out in fights.

There’s a traffic jam in Harlem

That’s backed up to Jackson Heights.

There’s a scout troop short a child,

Kruschev’s due at Idlewild

Car 54, Where Are You?

 

Ah life is grand in Metsville, at least for a day

 

I went to bed in the 6th inning of the Phillies-Dodgers last night because it’s good to get at least 5 hours sleep before doing a 12 hour shift at work so I missed Jeff Kent (I never thought I’d ever root for Jeff Kent as he was one miserable son of a bitch when he was a Met) and of course Nomah‘s wining HR. Green tea all around compliments of St Joseph of Torre!

 

Gangster  (as opposed to Gangsta’) City Councilman Hiram Monserrate, tried to strong arm a hearing in Manhattan last night on the proposed take over by NYC of Willets Point’s Iron Triangle. Monserrate is one of the biggest phonies in a chamber that is full of half assed lawmakers but from reading the Daily News account Monserrate is just play acting as an outraged hack. In the piece former Queens Boro Pres. Claire Shulman says that Monserrate told her not to worry the plan will go forward but he has to make noise to show his constituents that he’s fighting for them when we all know he’s fighting for a bigger kick back most likely in a cushy job to support his fat ass when term limits drive him out of office. Not once does Monserrate talk about the illegal dumping by the poor defenseless junk yard and chop shop operators in the Iron Triangle nor does he talk about the thousands of jobs that will be open to the people of Corona, Flushing and Jackson Heights when the Skill Sets plan for a hotel, shops and restaurants goes through. In fact I’ll get off Monserrates back when he gets the business owners of the Iron Triangle to pay all the fines they owe the city which is why a court will eventually allow the city to take over the properties via eminent domain.

 

Good news that Mike Piazza will be a guest during the last weekend of Shea. The Mets have done a piss poor job this year with honoring players and characters from the past 45 years of Shea’s excsistenace. How in the world can you not bring back old favorites like Banner Day, Senior Citizens Day and even working a deal with any local dairy to bring back milk cupons for tickets sweepstakes? We all know the rich and famous of Mets history but how about bringing back guys like JC Martin, Duffy Dyer, Willie Montanez, Al Weis, Pete Falcone, Ken Boswell, Teddy Martinez and the family of the Late Danny Frisella. That’s what the Mets and being a Mets fan is all about those players who were never stars but they were ours. Name me another team with a George “The Stork” Theodore? If there was anyone in the Mets organization with an once of creativity and smarts they would have put a day like this together. How about a day of not sucky music over the awful PA system but just the melodies of Lady Jane Jarvis? I’m sure Miss Jane could lend out a few of her Greatest Hits for that. And how about some mention of our Grand Dame Joan Whitney Payson who without here there wouldn’t have be a New York Metropolitan Baseball Club, sure Bill Shea did all the leg work and God bless his soul for that but Madam Joan put up the dough. The Red Sox just had what they call a Futures Day at Fenway Park this weekend a good old fashion pay one price get two games doubleheader featuring two of their minor league teams in action, I don’t know about you but I would go to Shea to see the Bingo Mets and the NOLA Zephyrs play and as I said in previous post make it a Day at Shea with church bazaar/block party/festival atmosphere. Sorry for the run on paragraph kids but it kills me that there is so much potential to keep the fan base happy and involved but the origination of the team I love is run by a bunch of dumb asses and it frustrates the living shit out of me.
