Fish don't fry in the kitchen; Beans don't burn on the grill. Took a whole lotta tryin', Just to get up that hill. Now we're up in the big leagues, Gettin' our turn at bat. As long as we live, it's you and me baby, There ain't nothin wrong with that. Well we're movin on up, To the east side. To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Movin on up, To the east side. We finally got a piece of the pie. WWWWWWWAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOO. WE�RE BACK IN PLAY BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! According to Jon Heyman of NEWSDAY, the New York Mets have agreed in principle to a 7 year/$119 mil contract with Carlos Beltran. Just one more pelt on Omar Minaya�s belt. According to Heyman, Beltran will have a physical tomorrow and sign the contract on Tuesday, afterwards the Mets will hold a press conference. They all laughed at Omar when he said he was out to get the best players possible. We Mets fans looked at Omar with a �does he know who he�s working for�? look . We read the stories. We heard we were close. We heard he loved Houston. We heard the Bronx Robber Baron would come in at the last minute to grab what was rightfully his. Well guess what Jack Curry, Buster Olney, Klapper, Chris Russo and Suyzn Waldman, KISS MY BLUE AND ORANGE ASS!!!!!!! You know what the best part of this is? Omar�s not done. He knows the NL Pennant is there to be taken. As I was discussing with Joe MacDonald of NYSportsday, now call the White Sox and go after Damaso Marte and then call the A�s about Octavio Dotel to build up the bullpen. Then wait for the phone call that should come soon from Carlos Delgado, because now we will learn if he wants to play for a winner or just collect a paycheck. Three teams have shown interest in him, Mets, Rangers, and Orioles. Where would you want to go if you were Delgado? What, you don�t think we can afford him and Beltran? HA. Check out Mike at The Metropolitans who lays it all out on how Beltran and Delgado can be added to the 25 man and still have cash left to fortify the pen. You can�t begin to know how great it is to write a positive post about the Mets. Last year may have been one of the worst season I�ve had as a Mets fan. But Omar has come in and in a span of 2 and a half months has disinfected the organization. All the guys I thought killed this team are all most all gone. Leiter, Franco, Stanton, Wilson, Howe, and the awful coaching staff have been swept out. Cliff Floyd and Mike Piazza could be next but you what? I could live with both guys staying here as there is no doubt that if both stay healthy, they could thrive in this lineup. It�s amazing what this does to the psyche. Take a look at this article from Mike Vaccaro in today�s NY Post. I�m thinking of having it lamented. < |
