IMFM's Off-Season Plan 2011 Foiled Before it Even Gets Off the Ground

Dammit. Phooey.

Loyal...and lazy!



The Mets front office might not have a plan, but I did. It was to re-Piazza the Mets by throwing tons of $$ to seduce  Joe Mauer, now a Twin for life with a no-trade clause, into compromising his career and signing with the Metropolitans. Was it a brilliant plan? Maybe not, but it was going to make this season's shenanigans tolerable.  And it was still possible to dream about until today. Too bad, he would have looked great on the Mets' DL.

In other non-news, now Jerry Seinfeld and Fred Wilpon have something in common: both know catastrophic, cascading failure. While critics have described Jerry's latest television venture as "worse than AIDs," no one, to my knowledge, has been cruel enough to compare "the Marriage Ref" to the 2009 NY Mets.

    I guess the rush with the health care vote was to get ready for the NY Mets 2010.

    insert "pre-existing conditions" joke here.

    also, I read that enormous batting helmets are NOT covered under the plan.
