HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!

Just would like to take the time to wish you all and Happy and Healthy New Year in 2012. I hope we can get back to some important Mets on the field news in the coming weeks but for now I’m watching Sunderland try to pull off a second stunner in the EPL this weekend (Man U’s loss to Blackburn Rovers a SHOCKER! but good for Blackburn’ under fire manager Steve Kean, us Steve Kean(e)’s got to stick together) trying to beat Man City while waiting for the big Giants-Cowgirls game tonight and then the Rangers-Flyers tomorrow in the Winter Classics. In between that we have a couple of invites from friends so I’ve told my wife to coordinate this as one sitting for the 1PM games and the other for the 4 PM games.

For the Giants-Cowgirls I have to be here at the Kranepool Society World Headquarters and not a neutral site.

I also informed  my family if they ever trot me out that way Dick Clark has been put on display the last few New Years Eve’s since his stroke, I will haunt then for eternity. I wish Clark’s family would stop ruining his legacy and his dignity like this every year.

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO FREDDY SKILL SETS

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.
