MONDAY MORNING QB’S ARE OUT IN FULL FORCE OVER MANNY

So let me get this straight all of the fans that wanted Manny to the Mets are now a bunch of assholes as the revelation that Manny was juiced comes to light. First don’t give the Skill Sets too much credit here for not signing Manny as they had no inside info on what we learned yesterday and the main stream sports media shouldn’t be laughing at fans who were pro- Manny, if anything they should be embarrassed that with all the clamoring for Manny to the Mets not one reporter in this city ever took the initiative to look into any allegations of Manny’s drug use. Jose Canseco who is the equivalent to the cops junkie snitch, made noise that Manny was into PED’s. Maybe if the reporters who go “tisk tisk you stupid fans” used their resources they may have had this story that would give their dying industry a boost it sorely needs.

 

Seeing that Manny is a Scott Bora$ client and that many of the PED positives have come from Bora$ clients maybe Congress should call Bora$ on the Hill to see what he knew and when he knew it?

 

It wasn’t a stellar performance by Big Pelf last night (the second straight start with no K’s has me worried) but he seems to be able to make adjustments during his start and that is a big positive. Last night he was pounding a way with his fastball low and he seemed to go primarily with the fastball and got a lot of ground balls in return. Pelf also went deep into the game by going 7 innings and he is 4-0 so let’s all put a happy face on this start.

 

It’s safe to take your D-Wright jerseys out of the closet. Our boy is back.

 

It will be a shame if J-Man gets suspended for bumping that tub of shit Bill Welke last night as Welke deserved a swift kick in the ass for his atrocious call of interference on Shit Victorino by Jose Reyes. I hope someone on the Mets files that elbow that the Poi Boy threw into Reyes for the next time the teams meet and plants a Rawlings in Doosharinos ribs. Same with the ball that went behind Wright, it’s payback time fellas’

 

Watching Carlos Delgado run is makes my hip hurt. I think J-Man will have to spot Delgado the rest of the year like two games on, one game off to keep him off the DL. The Mets have Tatis, and Murphy to man first to give Delgado time off.

 

After being used just about every other day Brain Stokes has become a forgotten man in the Mets bullpen. With Jon Niese getting the start tonight I’d venture a guess that Stokes may be the first guy up in the pen tonight.

 

So much for J-Man losing Shrek after pinch hitting for him looks like it was the kick in the ass he needed.

 

Watching Keith Hernandez mixing with the great unwashed in the centerfield food court was laugh out loud funny last night. Gary and Ron acted like Keith lost a bet with them and the payoff was doing something Hernandez hates, mingling with the Mets fan masses. Hernandez finally ended up in the Acela Club with his feet up and a glass of Chardonnay just how he likes it.

 

If you’re a Highlander fan and you booed Mariano Rivera last night you should hang your head in shame.

Also best wishes go out to Jerry Remy as he fights a reoccurrence of lung cancer. I met the Rem Dawg last summer in Hyannis and that was a real pleasure. He will be off the Red Sox telecast for awhile but hopefully not too long Get Well Soon Rem Dawg!

 

Sorry about last night’s Pro Baseball Central for some reason the show wasn’t streaming and after a couple of attempts to fix it it just wouldn’t stream and since I’m an idiot when it comes to this stuff I couldn’t get it fixed but we will try again next week (fingers-crossed)

BAD GUYS GO UP 1-0

Sure it sucked seeing Scott Kazmir on the mound for the Famous Rays last night but to be honest,  as much as I’m a Kazmir fanboy I thought he stunk last night. How the hell do you walk Pedro Feliz and Carlos Ruiz for God sake you have to let those two swing the bat CHALLENGE THEM DAMIT! Kaz was lucky that Upton made a strong throw to nail the little prick Victorino at the plate for an inning ending DP as that at least let the Rays stay in the game.

 

I though the 3rd inning was the turning point in the game as the Rays had a chance to make Cole Hamels life difficult with the bases juiced and 1 out with hot hitting BJ Upton at bat. Upton this past season hit a robust .353 in a bases loaded situation, so the odds looked good that even a fly ball would at least get the Rays on the board but Upton hit into an inning ending DP something he did only 13 times all season. 

 

Add that to Kazmir having runners on base every inning he pitched four of them via the base on balls and this game wasn’t as close as the score board showed. It’s up to James Shields to get the Pizza Guys even in the series. In my mind Game 2 is a must win for the Rays.

 

Who knew Wee Willie Randolph was such a catch? The Rockies and Nats want him to be a   bench coach and the Brewski’s are looking at him as a skipper. I still think Randolph best position is as an infield coach/instructor as a bench coach you’re involved in strategy which we know too well is not Willie’s strong suit.

 

With the economic climate in this country and newspapers facing extinction why in the world did the NY Daily News waste money by sending Bill Madden to the World Series to write about how all the team in the NL East hate the Mets. Not exactly ground breaking there Billy Pinstripes. You almost nailed a good column as you wrote about Pat Gillick turning around the Phillies and the Mariners but you missed the boat on the big story as Gillick was the Skill Sets choice to take over the Mets after the Steve Phillips disaster era but turned them down due to Jeffey Skill Sets meddling ways.

IS IT HOT IN HERE OR IS THAT MATT STAIRS STANDING BEHIND ME?

Very late with my post today as I’m in some serious need of motivation.  It’s a Carlos Delgado playing for Willie Randolph kind of day for a few reasons.

 

The A/C in the building has been shut so with the warm weather it is hot as hell in this office today so it’s hot and stuffy kind of like all of Highlander Nation .

 

Knowing that the Phelatios are a game away from the World Series on the power of one of my favorite players, Professional Hitter Mat Stairs makes it even worse. Then you have the Little Hawaiian Punch Victorino in his Little League batting helmet and grass skirt making big play after big play and acting like he doesn’t need that winter job of his anymore. (EDIT: I got rethink my opinion of Stairs as he “likes to have his ass pounded WOHA NELLY, I guess he’s seen Victorino do the hula in the shower)

 

A little vindication for Pack A Day Hank as St Joseph of Torre the patron saint of tea drinkers decided that Derek Lowe was done after 73 pitches and turned the game over to relievers as green as plantains.

 

Looks like Papi ain’t so Big without Manny around? Tell me that a lineup with Beltran in the 2 spot, Manny in the 3, Delgado 4 Wright 5 Church 6 with Reyes on top wouldn’t make the NL shit itself silly?

 

The more a look at it the more it seems if K-Rod wants to be a Met it will be under the Mets terms and not his. I think Omar would rather go with lower level free agents like Juan Cruz, Jeremy Affeldt as bridge guys  and a closer/8th inning guy like Brain Fuentes but I would like for Omar to explore a deal with the White Sox for Bobby Jenks and of course, AJ Pierzynski.

 

I’ve got to agree with Mike Silva, it sounds like Joe Bad Bing Benigno and Mike All Mighty Francesa sound like a match made in radio heaven. If WFAN would pair Francesa and Benigino in the afternoon then they should put the team of Curly Carlin and Kim Jones on at 10 to 1 and make Evan Roberts a utility host.

 

An other reason for lackadaisical day is my sadness over the death of NY Rangers prospect Alexei Cherpanov. For the non-hockey fan, Cherpanov is the Ranges equivalent of Fernando Martinez and from although the reports out of Russia are very very spotty it leaves one to wonder if an ambulance and or a difibulator were at the rink this tragedy could have been avoided.

 

I think someone else like guys pounding on his ass as well
