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
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
