Popularity of viagra Murray Chass The Jack Ass-curotsy of

Popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra Chass it seems felt it was his duty to call Larry Lucchino the Red Sox CEO, popularity of viagra to find out how the Sox managerial search was going. Popularity of viagra 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, popularity of viagra Chass decided he needed to know if Bobby Valentine was THE GUY the Sox were ready to hire as their field boss.

Popularity of viagra From reading the post it’s clear Chass has an agenda, popularity of viagra 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 . Popularity of viagra Chass will never identify himself as a blogger but that’s all in the denial side of his old ass life. Popularity of viagra Anyway, popularity of viagra 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, popularity of viagra Todd Hundley to make his case but back to Chass calling Lucchino. Popularity of viagra The Sox CEO told Chass that Valentine had a great interview and then wanted to know what Chass thought of BV, popularity of viagra I’ll let Chass tell you in his own words his feelings on Bobby V:

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

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

Popularity of viagra “I have found him to be the most disliked man in baseball, popularity of viagra” I said. Popularity of viagra And I added, popularity of viagra “He doesn’t like me and I don’t like him.”

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

Popularity of viagra One thing we know about Valentine is there is no middle ground when it pertains to how people feel about him. Popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra  No place in his column does Chass give Valentine credit for being an outstanding bench manager. Popularity of viagra  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. Popularity of viagra   

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

Popularity of viagra Valentine undoubtedly talks a good game; that’s why ESPN hired him. Popularity of viagra But ESPN doesn’t have to worry about a won-lost record. Popularity of viagra 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, popularity of viagra 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.

Popularity of viagra  

Popularity of viagra Presumably, popularity of viagra the Red Sox, popularity of viagra who have not participated in post-season games the last two years, popularity of viagra 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.

Popularity of viagra  

Popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra I’ll get to Hundley in a minute, popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra 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, popularity of viagra 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, popularity of viagra 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.

Popularity of viagra Back to Todd Hundley, popularity of viagra 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:

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

Popularity of viagra 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.

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

Popularity of viagra  

Popularity of viagra It’s true that Valentine gave a”wink-wink, popularity of viagra nod-nod” statement about Hundley not getting enough sleep which was Valentine speak for Hundley being a hard partying guy. Popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra Hundley felt he was the most popular Met (I think Bernard Gilkey, popularity of viagra 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, popularity of viagra as Hundley was exiled to left field. Popularity of viagra  That’s when Hundley ceased being a Met. Popularity of viagra His play on the outfield was one of indifference; you knew his Mets days were over. Popularity of viagra Was Valentine the reason? Maybe part of it but the mostly it was the acquisition of Piazza that was Hundley’s problem.

Popularity of viagra Without a doubt Valentine is a very polarizing person, popularity of viagra but he has a track record of turning teams around when he occupies the mangers office. Popularity of viagra 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. Popularity of viagra  Valentine vs. Popularity of viagra the Boston Media will a show all by itself.

Female Ingestion Viagra

Vigorex forte

Vigorex forte As expected, vigorex forte Wally Backman will remain in the Mets organization as manager of the Binghamton Mets. Although there was an outcry in the some parts Metsville on Backman getting the big league job as skipper, vigorex forte a jump from managing short season team to a Double A team is very impressive.

Vigorex forte Nothing sparks debate better than a list of all time players and Mike Silva has stoked the fire of Mets fans hearts with his Top 50 All Time Mets list. Vigorex forte I will be quite curious to read the comments on Mike site over this list as I found out with Kerrel Copper writing about retiring Ed Kranepool’s #7, vigorex forte there is a bit of a generation gap between the guys of my generation and the 20-30 something Mets fans. Vigorex forte 2011 will be the 25th Anniversary of the 1986 World Champs, vigorex forte that means the twenty something’s have never witnessed a Mets parade down the Canyon of Heroes (my old ass has seen both Mets parades) and the thirty something’s  have a vague memory of the festive day on Broadway. Vigorex forte I don’t blame the younger Mets fans for getting tired of old farts like myself waxing poetic about the Mets of yesteryear but then again don’t discount the players of the era either. Vigorex forte  

Vigorex forte By the way, vigorex forte I e-mailed Mike with my displeasure of John Franco being ranked higher that Ed Kranepool on his list. Vigorex forte  Same with Johan Santana at #20, vigorex forte a bit high. Vigorex forte Tug McGraw and Rusty Staub should definitely be ranked higher than Santana. Vigorex forte  Jerry Grote at #30?  Com’on way tooooooooo low and by the way all you kids better get off my lawn. What about George Theodore, vigorex forte Joel Youngblood, vigorex forte Ron Swoboda, vigorex forte Ron Hunt and Dennis Ribant, vigorex forte okay Ribant is a reach.          

Vigorex forte The best part about the end of the holidays is that the Mets front office should be open for business next week and maybe we can start seeing some signings or trades for pitchers. Vigorex forte Yeah I’m beyond antsy.
