Long Metropolitan Nightmare Finally Over
Justin Timberlake has retired?
July 30, 2004--January 31, 2007
No, it's just that Victor Zambrano has signed a minor league with the hapless Toronto Bluejays, and will once again join Jim Duquette (at the bottom of the AL East). The "Kaz" (-mir/ Matsui) era is officially over.
At least the Jays didn't sign Sammy Sosa. Now that would be crazy.
The injured and goofy pitcher was never the roundest doughnut in the on-deck circle, but Zamby's notorious arrival and departure did ALMOST single-handedly change the Mets from a laughingstock to contender. Indirectly. So let's remember him for the gift of relevance.
I can confirm nor deny the rumor that Victor signed the contract, then sprinted out of the room to a waiting bus.
So good luck, Victor, I hope which ever arm you are now pitching with brings you nothing but good fortune. On behalf of Rick Peterson, I symbolically offer you another 10 minutes with which to fix your career.
who will fill Zambrano's chair?
