Merry Christmans and Happy Holidays
I was hoping the Omar would have put one of the Carloses under the Mets fan's proverbial Christmas trees this year, but that did not happen. I think we all know it will be after New Year's Day that the two biggest bats left will find their landing spot, but I think we are all getting impatient too.
I know Christmas is supposed to be about giving, but I hope everyone remembered to take care of #1. There were plenty of new Mets goodies out for the holidays like the Doc Good 1987 road jersey, the 1988 Darryl Strawberry batting practice jersey, or the Mex 1986 home jersey. There were plenty more jerseys and they are all on sale. If you didn't get a gift you want, just log onto Mets.com and buy away. Just remember, if you are not happy, how the hell are you going to make other people happy? (that's what I keep telling myself anyway)
That is why I'm continuing with the me me me me theme of Christmas and hoping the Omar gets the Mets two more bats whether it be Beltran/MienLUkjFuckTheYankess3890ukjlactz or Beltran/Olerud or Delgado/Ordonez or or Delgado/Millar (I know people may be confused on this one, but he's played 1st, 3rd, LF, and RF and 18.6 homers per year for the last five years. In a pinch, he'd work for one year) or Delgado/Byrnes or Delgado/anyone but Sosa....whatever, but I want something in the form of one 30+ homerun bat. Once that happens, I'll be in a more giving mood. We all know that they need something else because Pedro won't be able to hit third in the lineup as well as pitch every fifth day and luckily for us Wilpon and Omar know that too.
I was trying to find a Christmas picture of Mr. Met, but to no avail. I did however find this disturbing interpretation of Mr. Met by one little child. Yes, yes, I know it's only a kid and it's pretty horrible to make fun of a little child’s drawing, but it looks like Mr. Met just got hit with the business end of hammer.
My Christmas Wish List:
No, no one spiked my egg nog. I just would like to see some great baseball this year from the Mets. The 70 total wins is going to be one tough one to attain, but the Mets have one of the top all around rotations and the best thing about the season not being started yet is anything can still happen.
