It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

Off Day Time Waster

Here's the inaugural "Off day time waster" post of the 2008 season. Let's get down to it, irrationally exuberant frenzy-style.

Three things I'm looking forward to:

1. Johan's first punch out.

2. Beating the Br*ves' Old Timer.
A lot of people are calling him Mr. Not-Devastated. I've called him many names. But henceforth, he shall be known by me as 0.1 (as in 0.1 innings, 5 H, 7 ER, 2 BB).

3. John Maine's progress:
I don't think it can be said any better than this.

Ever wonder what it's like to catch a major league knuckleball? Jim Caple, charisma black hole, has, and ESPN has produced a video of him dicking around with R.A. Dickey. The video's a bit boring, but if you're looking for a mid-career change, this might be it. It's all about the fingernails.

BallHype: hype it up!

    Sir IMFM,

    Based on the aged lineup and depth of pitching (this team is thinner than a single ply roll of TP fron Cosco), I have major concerns going into this season. Frail is an understatement. I have actually started to rationalize signing the allegedly colluded against roider from my neck of the woods in order to sure up a questionable lineup. Innocent until prove...oh, forget it, I can't even finish typing it!

    Day of banishment 107 (just guessing) from Cerroneland!

    if they can line up Alou's convalescence with Barry's prison sentence, I'm all for it!

    the line up is a bit thinner than planned. But they do have pitching and defense, which i'm told wins something or other. Of course Duaner Sanchez is a pipe dream at this point. There is room for pessimism.

    IMFM and YB chit-chatting in the same thread. It's like I died and gone somewhere.... not heaven, but I'm def. dead and haunting you both.

    Cantstandya! I always read IMFMs musings and since I received a lifetime ban from the cult hero Cerrone, I occasionally toss around a thought in here.

    IMFM reminds me of Dave Barry on acid. And his views are so much more poignant than Matt Cerrone's final 4 picks.

    My alcohol inspired late night views were just too much for the new age Met blogosphere. Se la vi!

    All in all, the blog world in general, and Metsblogs specifically have really damaged the productivity of telemarketers and students with C averages everywhere!

    that's for sure--i'll never graduate at this pace.
    Dave Barry on acid, huh? Another contender for the slogan I put on the IMFM cardigans, beer cozies and license plate holders I am designing. Look for them in 2012!
