Will it be Jerry Manuel or will it be Lee? All the newspapers had those at the top two – pretty funny because Lee wasn’t even mentioned until this jerk here started blogging.
Meanwhile on SI.com: SI learned that on the eve of the Subway Series, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon called together Randolph and GM Omar Minaya to impart this message: “You guys need to turn it around, and turn it around quickly.”
I’m predicting Jerry, and I’m predicting the fanbase will be even more ornery that under Willie.
1. I get to display the picture on the left which is
just a great picture.
2. Cheap hits from people searching for race car information.
3. Good luck to Travis Kvapil in the 28 car in the Coca-Cola 600 today. After watching John Maine shut down the Rockies today – perhaps buying Willie more time, plus or minus machete cracks – switch on over to Fox HD, crank up the sound, and give the sport a chance.
NASCAR is kind of like hockey in that you have to see it live to truly appreciate it – they are in Delaware next weekend and Poconos the weekend after for you Mets fans – but it’s really a cool sport with lots of strategy. Danica Patrick races Indy Car which is something else entirely, but it’s a good picture.
For those of you who read this blog before the papers – well read the papers first – Willie joked that Omar is in Denver sharpening his machete. Machete?
Random Thoughts before I waste a sunny day blogging:
The black hats with the blue bill look horrible on TV. You can’t even see the NY logo. Please ban these forever.
Gary Carter is backtracking on his comments. Sorry Gary, you talked yourself out of the running.
Good line by Mushnick today that none of the Art Howe camera shots were racially motivated. Of course that was Sportschannel/FSNY, maybe they were more open minded.
Starting to see “mainstream media” write the “It’s Omar’s fault too” columns. They like to rip the bloggers but they tend to be 4 days behind the bloggers on everything.
The Times has Reggie Jackson saying, â€œIt can play on our mind. We are going to think about it (race) in times of difficulty, whether you feel sorry for yourself, or whether you just acknowledge it.â€
Adding that â€œitâ€™s fair to think about it,â€ Jackson also said a man in Randolphâ€™s position must be â€œsensitive how you express itâ€ toward people you are â€œtrying to meld with and create a better environment for all.â€
