IMFM: HOT STOVE EDITION!
Sure, the rest of the bloggers will start blowing hard about which soon to be underperforming player the Mets will shoot their wad on, who will be traded to the Devil Rays for injured chumps, and so on and so forth. But I have the real scoop, and I dont see a need to wait until the Br*ves have choked again and the World Series is over and a new Wild Card winner is crowned Champion.
As I reveal below in the first installment of HOT STOVE EDITION!, this season, there are other Manny's for the Mets to worry about.
Replace Manny Acta as Third base coach.
This is certainly the team's most pressing need. He's gotta go. I'm sick of this guy's blunders. I don't need to name them, this is a blog, not some journalistic outlet. The winshares he has cost this team, if they could be calculated, would boggle the mind. I don't know what a winshare is, but you get the idea. Also, can anyone think of a reason to keep him?
Magic 8 Ball:
"If I get on base, am I gonna get picked up from third by an RBI guy, magic 8 ball?"
Would you or would you not run your stupid ass off if this guy was windmilling you home?
A 36 inch Traffic Cone
-can be picked up easily from 2nd
-uses approximately same decision making process as Manny Acta
-can be used to call the bullpen
-cannot dodge foul balls
- with Darryl Strawberry in spring camp, he's been known to try using these as bongs
