EVERYBODY WAS KUNG FU FIGHTING, THOSE CATS WERE FAST AS LIGHTING

Excellent post by Mathew Cerrone of MetsBlog on how the Mets need Sandy Alderson even though Rick Hahn would be a fantastic hire as well. If the Mets were an expansion team or a team in a small market then Hahn would be the pick, put for the Mets who need to change the way they are perceived by other teams, the media and especially their own fans (a/k/a paying customers) then Sandy Alderson is the clear choice for GM.

On Tuesday’s THIS CALL TO THE BULLPEN Radio Show, I spoke with Julian Levine of Splashing Pumpkins about the Giants-Phillies NLCS and how I wanted Bochy to put the Kung Fu Panda back in the lineup. He did and the Panda delivered. The Giants are one game away from the World Series. Part of me is hoping the Highlanders make a miraculous comeback and play the Giants in the World Series. If they do I’d make the trip to the South Bronx to root for the Gigantics while wearing my Johnny Antonelli throw back jersey.    

By the way, I give props to Ol’ Cholly for going with Roy Oswalt in 9th as he was the best pitcher available in the pen at that time. He was only going to use him for an inning any way and it still left Brad Lidge to close out the game. Where I do take some issue with Manuel is they way he used Jose Contreas for just one batter but hey I’m not complaining about the outcome that’s for sure.

The only part of the Rangers that worries me that they could suffer a Highlander collapse is their bullpen which is quite shaky.

I’ll just say I’m really looking forward to tonight’s Game 5 NLCS match up between The Freak and Doc Halliday and that’s all I’ll say. I feel like I jinxed yesterdays Game 5 of the ALCS so I’ll lay low with the wise ass remarks for now.

ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK, BLOGGER IS CRANKY

 

 

 

Oh man am I ever tired and cranky today as opposed to every other day when I’m just cranky. So today I don’t want to do shit or be bothered by shit because I really don’t give a shit (see where I’m going here, it’s not pretty and I’m sure it’s going to get worse so if you step out at this point in the post I understand for those of you decide stay on, then get on with reading this fucking post. See, I ain’t lying about being cranky) so today is officially LAZY ASS BLOGGING DAY where I read all the other bloggers out there, link to there stories and make wise ass remarks, so on we go:

 

Ed Barkowitz at the Philly Daily News has a quick synopsis of the NL East. He also posts the odds of each team to win the division, pennant and World Series and the Mets and Phillies are at the same numbers:

 

 Division: 3-2

 

NLCS: 9-2

 

World Series: 9-1

 

The team that worries me as much as the Phillies are the Marlins (A big thank you to Craig Strain of FISH STRIPES for joining Joe McDonald and myself last night on Pro Baseball Central check out the podcast here)

 

Why is Big Pelf driving a golf cart?  Shouldn’t that be a job for Jay Horowitz?

 

For those of us who watch Bradley Holt pitch on Coney Island last summer we understand that awe of watching his fastball explode. Holt is on the fast track to Flushing

 

Will Ohman was ready to sign with the Mets until he learned he was going to get paid with a Dunkin Dounts gift card

 

I’m happy Tim Redding has a burr in his saddle when asked if he is in contention for the 5th spot in the rotation. We need a few more “red ass’s” in that clubhouse. That being said I am rooting hard for Freddy Garcia to grab that spot.

 

Note to self: I must go to the Mets Clubhouse store today and buy a MURPHY 28 shirt!!! He’s just dreamy!!!!!!!!

 

Mike Steffanos of Mike Mets thinks the Used Car Salesman has been derelict of duty as baseball commissioner during the steroids scandal and as usual Mike is 100 % right. Feel better Mike.

 

Dave Singer at NY Sports Dog gives us the vile and nasty lowdown of Alex Rodriguez weekend in the Bahamas. I know when things are getting me down I look for some three way canoodling too.

 

That’s it for me I’m done as I am now hungry and still very tired and cranky so all of you “GET OFF MY LAWN”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
