Well today was the first day of the General Managers meetings and according to Joel Sherman, that weasel from the New York Post, is reporting that our personal whipping boy – Omar Minaya has told many of his industry friends that he desperately wants to add a run producing bat at either first base or left field. Sherman also reported that the sky is blue and the Earth is round… Am I coming across as hostile? Well when I hear the “SPORTS DOPE” – Mike Fatcesspool condescendingly announcing that the Yankees are going to go full bore after John Lackey I kinda get agita and go into a tourrettes like induced tirade !!
Joel ShermanÂ Â Â Â Â Â Mikey FattyfatÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Omar MinayaÂ – THE UNHOLY TRINITY?
Anyway ” HERE COME THE INFAMY !!!”
Happy Birthday wishes go out to former Mets player, coach and head of scouting- The ” White Rat ” himself – Whitey Herzog (1931) . I admit he is better known for piloting the St Louis Cardinals , but he was one of the unsung heros that worked behind the scenes getting us to that World Series in ’69.
Hall of Fame pitcher and one time Mets coach – Bob Gibson is 74 (1935)
Gene Dusan – A coach for the George Bamberger era Mets is 60 (1949)
Reserve outfielder – Jon Nunnally is 38.(1971)
New York Mets sold reliever Ed ” The Hot Dog Vendor” Glynn to the Boston Red Sox on November 9, 1984.
Colorado Rockies signed the “African American Rusty Staub ” – Lenny Harris of the New York Mets as a free agent on November 9, 1998. Lenny was one of the best pinch hitting specialists we have ever had . And it was always funny seeing him try to leg out doubles.
And remember , there are only 147 long , tediously slow and tumultuous more days until l the Mets open the 2010 season against the Florida Marlins at Citi Field.
