There is no "Arod" in Team, but there is an "A-Met!"
First, the Mets resigned Old Man Moises, which would be unremarkable except for how it suddenly impacts the Arod calculus. If Old Man is out there in left for 80 games or so, that kills the idea of "Wright playing Left."
Then Mike K-K-ameron got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. We don't know what substance he got nabbed with, and people are tending to assume its something small time (Greenies) since its only a 25 game sentence. But, I mean look at the guy if you don't think its the 'roids; he is huge. His traps remind me of my Honda Accord. Too bad, since he's such a nice guy and admired around any clubhouse he finds himself in. If I were him, I'd say I didn't remember doing anything since I hit on the head by the head of another Gold Glover.
I wonder if Wright will talk to Omar to get their stories straight by Daily Show showtime tonight? If not it could make for some interesting viewing if Jon Stewart reads the newspapers. And can stop talking during interviews for a minute.
This whole Arod thing has us chasing our tails. The Mets can fit him in to the budget, to the line up, just not into the infield. The next decision Omar makes could have big repercussions. And they resigned Alou to raise the level of difficulty. But think about it. What do you turn to me for if its not to solve all your problems? Here we go.
Know the joke (pardon me ladies), "I can't get 1 million dollars for someone to sleep with my wife, but I CAN get $50 2oooo times!"?
I say offer Arod $7.5 million per year. For 40 years.
Throw Bora$ a curveball.He wants a $300 million commitment? Let's give it to him. Built in incentive for him to stay in shape. And when Arod hits is in his 60s, he can be in charge of cleaning the teleportation deck at Citi-Microsoft-Starbucks Stadium at Apple Park.
Move the Mets to the American League.
Tell Reyes arivaderche!
Sign Arod. Move Reyes to the Italian league until we figure it out. Like they do in basketball.
