Long Metropolitan Nightmare Finally Over

Bush is pulling out of Iraq?
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?

    I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

    http://www.americanlegends.blogspot.com

    If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

    Thanks,
    Mark
