Raining blood from a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Now I shall Reign in blood ! – Slayer
Well death came on swift wings last night during the first three innings of the Mets/ Braves game. But lets face it. This was do mauling – THIS WAS A BLOOD BATH!!. I think it’s safe to say that Pat Misch is definitely not in our plans for next year – Lance Broadway also for that matter. Okay enough of my rantings and ON WITH THE INFAMY !
I personally send out Birthday wishes to possibly the most intense second baseman we have ever had – Wally ” Future Manager?” Backman (1959)
Also another year older although i couldn’t give a decaying rats ass – Vince ” Mr. explosives expert” Coleman (1961) He was definitely one of the worse free agent signings we have ever had – he dogged it on the field and his off the field antics were appalling – I still feel he was sent by Whitey Herzog to bring the ’92 team down from the inside.
Middle relief pitcher Mark Guthrie is 44 (1965)
and some scrub outfielder named Jeff Barry is 40 (1969) .
And a final thought – after watching the first three innings ( yes I tried – break out the purple heart) I saw the SNY cameras focusing a lot on both Jerry Manuel and Dan Warthen – all I can tell you is both looked like dead men walking – And to quote Droopy Dog – ” You know what - THAT MAKES ME HAPPY !”
