Yankers Finally Overcome the Curse of Piazza, Buy Latest Championship

New York's other team has finally put nearly a decade of futility behind them and collected the prize that is supposed to come with a $200 billion payroll: the "World" Series. The Mets were content to win the real "world"2009 competition, the competition over which club can send the most of their pricey players to the meaningless World Baseball Classic to become injured/ineffective. Look for them to do the same exact thing again the next chance they get.

It was a shame Michael Jackson, pictured above enjoying someone else's children and some enormous fake breasts, couldn't have lived to see the Yankers 27th champtionship. But seriously folks, I always took Colbert as more of a "bottom" than a "top."

So... it's nice to have that all wrapped up. Still, questions remain:

Could the Yankees have pulled it together without Luis Castillo and his amazin' early season gift win?

Was Pedro a rogue agent (ala Gla*vine) sent by the Mets to destroy the Philmes hopes and dreams?

Will Jimmy Rollins ever shut the fuck up?

How are Derek Jeter's herpes doing? A little flair up the middle?

How much will the Mets sign Hideki Matsui for?

Why is Jorge Posada so ugly? I have to know.

Will Joe Girardi pull over one night, and pull the Mets franchise from a steaming wreck? (I think he learned that scam from Arod).

Aside from watching Fever Pitch on an endless loop, Clockwork Orange-style, is there anything more painful for a Mets fan than listening to Joe Buck announce a Yankees clinching victory over that disgusting Philadelphia team? Buck will spend the weekend picking Mariano Rivera's pubes out of his teeth, but I await the 2010 season to find out the answer to my question.

    watching wright play third, watching pagan play the outfield and run the bases, trying (for God knows what reason) to read Mike Pelfrey's lips, the mere sight of Ollie Perez, listening to John Maine, seeing Reyes pounding his chest at first base, Tim Redding, Jerry Manuel press ocnferences, Omar trying to use the word "lobby", anything wontpon, watching Luis Castillo turn the DP, Ramon Wilson Argenis Anderson Hernandez Reyes Valdez Martinez, Brian Schneider at-bats.......there is more but I am running out of ink.

    I have a feeling of all the blogs, we here are farthest away from throwing the "hope switch", the phenomenon where last season's memory gets foggy, and the fan gets the idea that their team, freed of injuries or with one final piece added, is good enough to compete.

    I will tell you what would give me hope--omar's pink slip. I know the wontpons will probably pick another loser, but short of Isiah Thomas, I don't think they could do worse. Tell me you are bringing in a pro and giving him some money to work with. I actually want to hope. I know it does not sound like it. That is just the depth of the depression omar has put me in, the bastard.
