And holy shit, Batman!
Did y'all hear Keith's comments about Gary Carter during today's game broadcast on The WB????? He described Gary Carter and/or Gary Carter's recent comments about throwing his hat into the not-so-vacant-yet ring of the Met manager's job as "unconscious."
Looks like Willie isn't the only one squirming in Metsland right now, huh?
Looks like Carter is jumping in the premature Willie grave, and frankly, I've always thought that Gary Carter's best friend was Gary Carter. Don't get me wrong -- I agree with Keith that Gary was a helluva player and has my utmost respect AS A PLAYER, but jeeze louise, Gary... give it a break already, willya? By this time, everybody and his brother, and his other brother (Larry, Darryl and Darryl, anyone?) KNOWS you want a ML manager's job. But if you keep up shit like this, Gary, the only manager's job you're going to get is the one you currently have, for as long as you can keep it.
I've always thought that Gary Carter was more of a fan's player than a player's player. That he was the type of guy the other players would snicker about behind his back, and plot all kinds of silly pranks of the lockerroom variety while doing it.
So you might just say, Gary, that your mouth and naked ambition will be the vehicles of their own demise. So even if Willie is currently a Dead Man Walking, you're lined up right next to him at the morgue, there, ex-pal-o-mine.
