Mets win with ETC. line-up
Last night was an odd night for Mets fans.
The manager managed (or at least sent the righthanded rejects in to relieve the regular clowns).
The stopper stopped.
The set up man set up.
The closer closed.
All those happy, unfamiliar chemicals making their way around our brains were no doubt due to Johan's ballsy K of Uggla in the 5th, Castillo's spear of that deadly shot up the middle in the 7th, Dirty's vintage 8th, Big Mouth Billy's clean 9th.
But it is also undeniable that Nick Evans (makes left field interesting), Fernando "Da Plane" Tatis, (2 singles, 2 RBI’s), Ramon "HEAD" Castro (2 for 3, 2 RBI’s), and Damon "I could retire just as" Easley, otherwise known as "The Blueprint" have breathed life into this sad crew of rich, complacent athletes. The Mets "Reject Row", aka ETC (Easley, Tatis, Castro) accounted for ALL the Mets rib eye steaks. Put that in your hat and smoke it.
I watched the game on tape (literally on VCR tape) with hopes of fast-forwarding through the pain quickly but the evil geniuses at SNY foiled my plans by introducing yet another innovation--the Mex cam. Sitting Keith behind the plate and letting him wave his hands and talk was a stroke of genius, even though it took away from the number of unflattering shots of Willie we usually enjoy.
Someone "gets" me.
In the process of continuing his jihad/publicity stunt against "bloggers"Buzz Bissinger has helped me refocus on my core product (swiped from CSTB):
I think most blogs are used to make idiotic comments that they think are funny. To me it shows that they need to do something else with their lives because they have way too much time on their hands.
There is one big difference to what I did on Costas Now and bloggers. I didn’t hide behind anything. I didn’t hide behind some silly email handle or some silly name. I was myself. That was my name. My email is public and that’s a big difference. Blogs should insist that people use their real names. Would they still get the same amount of hits if they are really for change?
Post whatever you want but you gotta use your real name and it’s gotta be verified.
They’ll never do it because it’s a money game, let’s face it. The more posts you get, the more hits you get, the more money you make. That’s not just to entertain us. That’s also to make money.
Deadspin is in it to make money.Whoa, money? Hiding behind silly names making idiotic comments that I think are funny. How did Buzz get his hands on my business plan? Of course, I draw the line at profiting from my efforts.
