Well the past twenty-four hours has been pure hell for me !! First off was the Jets loss last night. The Jets as we all know came out like a house on fire , unfortunately Peyton Manning and the Colts figured out how to neutralize both our offence and our defense in the second half. Then this Morning while getting into my car to get to the second leg of my job , my i phone fell into a puddle of water , rendering it as effective as Omar's oratory skills !!! Compound that with the fact I have to listen to "Fat Man" Francesa and all of his smugness in regards to last nights Jets loss and the report from S.I's John Heyman stating that the Mets aren't among the favorites in retaining Ben Sheets and it all adds up to me having a pretty crappy day !! Well I will always have my Rangers - D'OH !!! " I'm suffering from Murphy's Law !!!" And with that said ... HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!Happy Birthday wishes go out to Art Howe's favorite pitching coach , Vern Ruhle (1951) . Too bad he sucked with us.New York Mets traded outfielder Damon Buford to the Texas Rangers for minor league outfielder Terrell Lowery on January 25, 1996.New York Mets sold Angel Pagan to the Chicago Cubs on January 25, 2006. Angel is currently projected as being our Opening Day starting center fielder - oh joy !New York Mets signed free agent Aaron Sele of the Los Angeles Dodgers on January 25, 2007. Sele was used as a long man/ spot starter fir the '07 team. As we all know he did very little to ingratiate himself with the fans , down right sucking in his lone season with the Mets.And while you are throwing back shots of Wild Turkey tonight , just remember that there are only 70 days until the Mets open the 2010 season against the Florida Marlins, at Citi Field.
