All my friends know the low rider The low rider is a little higher Low rider drives a little slower Low rider is a real goer Low rider knows every street yeah! Low rider is the one to meet yeah! Low rider don't use no gas now Low rider don't drive to fast Take a little trip Take a little trip Take a little trip and see Take a little trip Take a little trip Take a little trip with me Omar Minaya and Tony Bernazard are off on their free agent money spending binge as the signing season on free agents is now open. It looks as though Omar and Tony will stay in the Continental 48 this off season unless the get permission from the South Florida Fish to speak with Carlos Delgado and head to P.R. (an aside to Tony Bernazard: If you do get to speak with Delgado please don't bring up the fact that he is a Puerto Rican, he is very sensitive about that) The first stop on the trip will be in Arizona home to Bengi Molina. Most likely they will feel out Molina and see if he is interested in coming to New York, which I'm sure he will them yes, anything to drive the price up. From there I'm sure the duo will call Asst' GM John Ricco to make the Mets offer to Billy Wagner and to tell Wagner and String Bean (or is Bean String I dunno I get confused) that they are on their way to VA with a bag of Mets Money. Then of course there are talks with A.J. Burnett ( I hope they still have some of Burnett's baby pictures from when he was a Met ) then there talks with the Sawx about Manny and with the Fish on Delgado and with the Janpanese on Jojima and talks with Scott Bore-us about Kevin Millwood (Maybe Omar can mention Mike Pelfry, remember him the Mets number one pick in this years draft? Can we get him signed by the January mini camp?) and of course all the calls to make a trade involving Cameron, Matsui, Trax and The Zambrano Project. All in all there's a lot for Omar and Tony to do that will take a lot of gas, frequent flier miles and whenever minutes to get the Mets in the 2006 post season.
