...and seeing if any of it sticks.
That's right, as the picture so clearly states, shit is a weapon. So what say we throw some of it, and see what we come up with:
(1) David Wright. If anything good comes out of this whole WillieGate mess, here's one potential positive - David Wright finally emerging out of his cocoon to become the unchallenged leader of the Mets. Of course, this will happen only if Willie is replaced as manager, and a shift in attitude occurs.
(2) Aaron Heilman. So he's on the trading block, eh? Another textbook example of the phrase "what a fine mess you've gotten us into." By US, I mean, the METS of course. Here's a novel idea, owners of the Blue and Orange: right now, The Vile Heil sucks the big one. And he's unhappy, and has probably been unhappy for years now. OK, OK, I admit, I was one of those who advised The Heil rather snarkily to suck it up and take one for the team, but at this point, the whole thing has turned to, well, to shit, in keeping with the theme of this here post. So, as suggested by TC last week on her blog, why not offer him a stint in the minors and the chance to become a bona fide starter, which is what he's always wanted? Why not try this before trading for him, because you just know if you're a Mets fan that he's going to go somewhere else, start, and be another Tom Glavine against the Mets *sigh.* So whaddaya say, Mets?
(3) Carlos Delgado is a fucking cancer. I'm not sure that one's up for debate, other than to say the only debate is what to do with him once the managerial change occurs. Which it will, and probably before long. Enough of Delgado's shitty attitude, shitty play, all around shit. I don't have the answer, but something has to happen with him. Because, well, it's like this. It's kind of like The Teacher v. The Wiseass Bully. In the case, the Mets being The Teacher, and Delgado being The Wiseass Bully. As a teacher myself (not a schoolteacher, but a CCD teacher, which still qualifies me as a bona fide identifier of this phenomenon, even I say so myself), you usually identify the The Wiseass Bully of the class within the first few classes. You know the one -- the one who constantly challenges you, the one to whom the other kids look for guidance, the one whose word goes in class, the one who is loved and admired by most of the other kids. You know, of course, the only way to gain control of the class is to somehow stop The Wiseass Bully in his tracks. Now, there are several different methods by which to do this, which isn't really the point of this post; the point is, Carlos Delgado has been definitively identified as The Wiseass Bully. So what are you waiting for, Mets????? You can't let him run the class, fcol!
(4) Moises Alou, And The Old Injured Guy Brigade. See, now, this is a real problem. In addition to the whole WillieMess, the Mets need to decide in which direction they're going to go. As much as I love and admire Moises Alou, I was pretty much against his re-signing this past off-season because of his propensity for spending half of each season on the DL, and half of the other half on the bench trying to avoid being on the DL. You simply cannot sign this type of player and make him an everyday position player. It's not good sense, it's not good business, it's just plain not good.
Like, it's shit.
So, any of y'all got an opinion on any of this?
