Stuff That Makes Me Laugh

On the left there, the Jerry Manuel style of management has taken to international soccer. (Thanks Deadspin)

Goose Gossage says: “There’s not enough mustard in the city to cover Reyes. He needs to act like a professional. I don’t want this sport to turn into football where they dance after every play. I can’t stand that – the dancing, the laughing – there’s no place for that in the game. He’s not the first great player to play – I wouldn’t even say great because he hasn’t won anything yet.” (thanks ESPN)

And Letterman says, “Willie is pretty good about it. He said he’s looking forward to spending more time at home being booed by his family.” (thanks Letterman)

Nieto’s Fault

I love a snarky post and ESPN’s Page Two has written the definitive piece on Tom Nieto.

The overall numbers say it all. From Opening Day through Monday, the Mets collected 419 singles, but just 124 doubles. The man holding runners up at first base, time and again? That’s right — Tom Nieto. This is not a result of small sample size — in 2007, with “Red Light” Nieto on the case, the Mets hit 294 doubles, but an astounding 1,045 singles. Not surprisingly, the team failed to make the playoffs.

Hilarious. click:

>Willie Should Stay Quiet

>Willie should just stay quiet and take the high road. Don’t forget, three weeks ago he was in the middle of a “racism” controversry. The Mets turned him into a martyr. All he needs to do is stay quiet and let Hank & Hal offer him a chance to wave at the All Star Game….Willie would be a returning hero and the Mets would look like idiots.

So stay quiet.

Willie spoke to the News…some interesting things:

Then (Omar) handed me an envelope, a little parting gift, and told me to make sure I reviewed it with my agent, Ron Shapiro.
It was a copy of my Met contract that basically says I better not say anything detrimental about the team, or I might jeopardize the rest of the money I have coming to me.

Boy these Mets are really afraid of what people might say about them or think about them. The more they try to control the message the stupider they look. Do they really think that if Willie came out and called them names it would really turn people into Yankees fans? If the Mets win, they draw. That’s how it is.

As for the “racism” controversy, Willie is remoresful:

The bottom line is that by suggesting that the color of my skin had something to do with how I was judged, I did nothing but sow the seeds of my demise. I kick myself about that every day. It makes me angry – and really sad.

Now the Mets Police were all in favor of a change at manager, and always felt Willie whined his way into the job in the first place. However, this was handled so so so so poorly. All the Mets had to do was fire him on Memorial Day. Now everyone feels bad for this guy.

Even The Mets Police.

>All Quiet On The Western Front / Ugly Mets Attire

>
All quiet. J-Man hasn’t stabbed anyone. I can’t do the Willie/Omar/Wilpons thing again. So I thought I’d hit mlb.com and see what atrocities they’d like us to buy.

Ah the old swoosh logo. As popular as the Islanders Gorton Fisherman. At least it’s not black.


While wearing your swoosh shirt, why not wear this hat so we can punch you in the nose and steal your girlfriend.

Or maybe you should just get this stupid combo and look like a softball team…oh wait that’s the actual uniform this team chooses to wear. Well I guess black and blue are gangsta colors, so Jerry will be at home if he cuts Reyes. Do gangstas wear gray pants?
