DOWN GOES SANTANA……… AGAIN

 

I was going to take a break from blogging today but a few items of interest have given me the urge to vent, so a venting we will go:

Johan Santana either hurt his right pectoral muscle or his shoulder or he broke a finger nail or his left arm was amputated from just above his elbow. Take your pick because no one knows for sure especially the manager who has trouble decipher the difference between a pec muscle and a shoulder.

So let me see if I have this right, you can criticize the President of the U.S., the Pope, Muslims building a community center in Manhattan, the NYC Transit System and your In-Laws but you can’t criticize Jeff Francoeur and his inability to hit a baseball with any authority or the fact that his nice smile and balls to the wall hustle might be a façade as when his playing time was cut due to lack of production he had his agent go crying to management that he wanted out. You know what, sometimes you Mets fan get want you deserve, a losing team and incompetent management.

Yesterday Wally Backman met with Jeffey Skill Sets on Coney Island. Today and tomorrow Wally gets to see me at MCU Park ( I’d love to meet with him in fact I’d take him over to Gargulio’s for a little escarole and beans and scungilli my treat) It seems Wally was a little taken aback when asked if Jeffey offered him the Mets managers job while visiting the Cyclones chief. Yeah I’m sure you two talked about the carpets and drapes.

TONIGHT AT 7PM THE RETURN OF AMAZIN’ TUESDAYS AT TWO BOOTS TAVERN

Every year the Mets host a welcome home dinner for the club. The dinner is usually held in some high-falutin establishment where folks wear their fancy clothes, eat horses-doovers and are as stiff as M .Donald Grants corpse.

Now I know that is not the place you or I would ever darken a doorway, no for us, real life working men and women Mets fans our Welcome Home Dinner known as AMAZIN’ TUESDAYS is tonight at Two Boots Tavern  at 384 Delancey St on the LES.  For this event the NYC Transit System has provided transportation via the F line to Delancey St or the J, M, or Z line to Essex St and the B or D line to Grand St.

Your host for the evening Mr. Phil Hartman will be on hand to offer you a great exchange program where you give him a baseball card of a Mets player and in turn he buys you a beer. No white wine drinkers here friends!   

The Master of ceremonies for the evening Mr. Greg Prince has a star studded line up of guests to talk Mets baseball on a fine spring evening. The festivities get under way at 7PM, so adorn yourself in your finest Mets threads and join your fellow Mets fans at Two Boots tonight.
