Well thank goodness for the off day yesterday. Other than the usual wackjob callers pontificating on WFAN about how the Mets suck – I was kinda relieved that to know I wouldn’t have a bout of heartburn because of the Mets that night.
So with the night off from the Mets I was listening to some music and it occurred to me – if you could put this season to music it would probably be “ Stuck in the Middle With You” by Stealer’s Wheel. Then I wondered what song would be most appropriate for our Mets player.
Well to quote Lando Calrissian – ” here goes nothing” !
Jose Reyes - Racing with the Devil On A Spanish Highway : Al DeMeola
Ike Davis : New Kid In Town – The Eagles.
John Maine : I Don’t Need No Doctor – Humble Pie
Luis Castillo – Them Bones – The Herman Munster version
Johan Santana : The Trooper – Iron Maiden
Mike Pelfrey : Lick Up – Kiss
Jason Bay :Head Games – Foreigner
R.A Dickey : Five Knuckle Shuffle - Anvil
Jerry Manuel : The Joker – Steve Miller Band
Francisco Rodriguez: Momma Said ( Knock You Out !) -L.L Kool J
Fred & Jeff Wilpon, Omar Minaya – ( toss up) Flirting With Disaster - Molly Hatchet or The theme from the Three Stooges !
If you have any better songs please feel free to comment .
” Yadda Yadda yadda !”
And with that said… HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!!
