The Hot Stove League…

…is starting to heat up. Every baseball fan thinks that he or she can do a better job than the people running their favorite team. I’m no exception. Omar Miniya, the Mets G.M. made two key moves yesterday that suck. First he let Glavine become a free agent. With Martinez a question mark, unless he has Zitto in the bag and a trade in place for Milledge, one can kiss the 2007 Met season adios. Signing Alou? Yes he speaks Spanish [a new requirement, it seems, in Metsville and that’s bueno], but he literally tripped over the foul line in right field for the Giants this past year and not only is he not able to field anymore, he’s old and brittle [much like my dear self]. Milledge will not develop as a part-timer and Si [hugo?] Green and Perez are not the answer. Now, Omar is a graduate of Newtown High School in Elmhurst, N.Y. This is where Yours Truly learned to spell. Therefore, I’ve cut him some slack these past few years and trusted that he knew what he was doing when he didn’t go for some pitching at the trade deadline… Oh yea, nice a.b., Beltron…grrrr. As you may know, being a Mets Fan has been a “mixed bag” for these past 45 years.
