I'm O-K with this Rod
I can't get too excited about welcoming such a profligate sky-pointer to my club.
I am not big on sky pointing. I can think of a handful of Mets who actually qualify to point to the sky and they would never do such a thing.
However, I can imagine my readers, particularly those in secured bunkers, will want a run-down of the reactions to the deal. So...want to know what a complete and utter douchebag thinks about the deal? Wonder what a guy who looks like a militiaman and has a noun as a last name thinks? Know that elsewhere, some bring the wonders of replacement level thinking to the table, noting that the Mets, like American citizens in general, "are paying for about 2 WAR each season."
So is it a safe pick?
A big lazy-throw-money-at-the-problem solution?
A deft move?
An unavoidable inevitabiltiy?
I don't know. But what's done is done, and it really matters what the Mets do next. They need to rid the club of klutzy cancers like Aaron Heilman (hello Houston Street), part ways with useless cogs like Pedreadful FeliceNavidad-for-the-other-team. Then I am not kidding they need three more relievers at least. And they cannot cannot cannot sign Raul Ibanez to start in left, no no no daddy. If it is true that the "Mets, Ibanez spotted at Bellagio" as the headline reads, hopefully the Mets were at the Bellagio gambling their money on a good investment, like roullette or hookers. We need an Adam Dunn, ManRam, or something really smart that I didn't think of.
You see, without Huston, we have a problem.
Next up...can the Mets get this guy to walk down their street?
