HOT STOVE...OWW SHOOBIE DOOBIE!
With this partial list, I want to be the first to argue against every single available free agent or trade possibility, so that later i won't have to rewrite an entry I'm working on, entitled "I told you so!" Basically, I would sit on my freakin hands, boys and girls:
Lyle Overbay=ryhmes with "Overpay"=The second coming (technically the third coming, but there is no such expression) of Jeremy Canthitz. PASS
Benji? Molina=does anyone else besides me know he's 31 years old? How does a guy named after a talking dog block the plate? Also, he's raking in the playoffs ala Beltromar, so already being blown way out of proportion by NY media hype machine-maybe the Mets Brass' single biggest enemy. PASS
Konerka=never heard of him--how many great seasons has he had again? PASS
Jojima=stop it. um, broken shin, plays for a team named "softbank", and CAN"T SPEAK ENGLISH TO PITCHING STAFF (Ishii probly not staying, folks)...he's japanese for budah's (sorry for the mispelling) sake! Mets and Japanese players don't mix PASS WITH EXTREME CAUTION
Soriano=dont know what to say about this guy, other than he's pushing probably 40. It wont go away. MAYBE no PASS, no MAYBE. ARGH!
Ramon Hernandez, San Diego=didn't impress me in series with mets, but also is he worth the kind of cash a catcher feeding frenzy will result in? Doubt it. PASS
Furcal=i still hate all br*ves, including toothless (agent) Tom(ahawk chop). Furcal is annoying and streaky and why would he want to play second? Why don't they just sign Julio (undead) Franco and freakin' Andruuw Jwones and call the team the Br*ves? Stop bringing this up. Please. PASS he's an ASS.
Delgado=you really think the Mets would go after this guy, to help their buddies the Marlins cut bait after what he and his weanie agent said? You just aren't paying enough attention. Say ten pledge of allegiences or whatever Delshmado refused to do. PASS he's an ASS.
Every and All Devil Rays. I know Lame-ar got canned, but still hesitate to go after these players...after all, there's a reason why the Rays SUCK, and i'll give you a hint, it has to do with their players. PASS.
Manny=$60 million headcase, can bounce ball off of head when fielding fly balls; probably on decline. Would Lil' Theo try to screw us for prospects as well as our sh*tty pitching and extra outfielders? It says here he would. MAYBE
Here's hoping Omar doesn't let the metsies get taken for suckers again.
