Mets Will Have To Learn about Bad Vibes Some Other Way
Oh nooooo! Who let this issue into the clubhouse?

We have no idea what the Mets are thinking leaving Oliver Perez in the majors, but it looks like we know what Perez will be reading as he sits uselessly out there in the bullpen nursing his left uh, right sore knee and probably aggravating every adult in the vicinity. There are no funny pages in USA Today! so I imagine Oliver will just stare at the forecast for Buffalo on the colorful weather page.
The Mets have downgraded Ollie's responsibilities, but can he even handle this?

So the tone-deaf Mets have allowed another pile of shit to hit the fan, this time inadvertently (or advertently its hard to tell with these clowns) restricting what bad news the players can read in their spare time, lending more credence to the widespread suspicion that these guys are softies with nice smiles whose fragile sensibilities have to be coddled. Did they really think the tabloids wouldn't pick up on this story, thereby creating another distraction for this oft-distracted bored not-devastated bunch?

The timing is great as usual. Just when the Mets disappearing "Jaywalker's Row" of hitters makes its triumphant return, just when one of their four struggling starting pitchers buckles down and delivers, just when they beat a hated rival in a park they always seem to lose in, that's when Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz allowed the tabloids to get their hands on enough to concoct a story out of nothing. Some part of this team is always failing somewhere, you just have to look hard enough.

    I heard this the other day on the radio--- the Mets passed on Lowe because of his price. But he only wanted a few mil more per year than Ollie. The kicker was the fourth year. Lowe was too old. lowe who has never been seriously injured or suffered bouts of Steve Blass disease. The cheapo Mets, who could easily have paid Lowe's freight after three years of raking in bucks at their new pleasure palace, or even traded him after two and used the money toward a younger FA who they thought was worth the bucks? I tell you: other GMs use calculus to map out the future. Omar is still stuck with his arithmetic. He has no plan. No vision. No concept.

    P.S. Is ther eany evidence that Ollie can read?

    No but we know Ollie can count (his money).

    This is why you shouldn't listen to the radio--bad vibes!

    what's next, puncturing the ear drums of all the Mets players so that can't hear the nasty twaddle emitting from WFAN? Why don't they get a nice Mike Francesa pinata for the clubhouse?

    Here's our golden opportunity for exposure! Write nothing but wonderful sonnets about the Mets and how brilliant they are in your blog. Fill your columns with glowing reports and who knows, maybe we can all pander to the Mets new All News Is Good News clubhouse philosophy.

    I think I'm going to rename my blog, "No Bad News Here Mets, Come And Get Your Love!". I'll decorate the pages with lace and frills, puppies and small smiling children, flowers and peace everywhere.

    The blogs the Mets clubhouse is allowed to read, just imagine the notoriety! I'm getting chills already.

    Didn't you know? In America it is a new day. No one is even allowed to fail, even when they lose. This from a couple of clowns who fill Mets stadium with Dodger memorabilia.
