Thanks For The Memories

So Captain Corporate has taken out a full page ad in the Boston Globe, thanking the city of Boston for his time there...probably in an effort to not have various projectiles thrown at him when he returns to Fenway.

Well for the second time in a week, a former Red Sock has thanked his former team's fans in a full page newspaper advertisement. You might remember him:

Mientkiewicz will not be returning to Shea in 2006 (that is until he's traded to the Braves to provide defensive stability after the Royals realize that signing marginal veterans are completely useless...and Mientkiewicz gets big hits against the Mets to knock them out of the playoff chase.)

hilarious! I miss him so much. His tortoise-like quickness, his incredibly bad body, his super- slow swing. The human snail.

Is this for real or just a brilliant piece of metstradamus satire? If real what paper? Thanks.

You can't put a price on leadership. Or .240 hitting.

Metstradamus said...

I wish it was real.

What's funny is that you can easily take that quote and attatch to the other man in that pic. Gerald "Ice" Williams.

Metstradamus said...

Absolutely! I had Ice in mind too.

ESPN reports the Marlins have added Norfolk to their list of potential relocation spots. It's a bad idea that won't happen, but the silver lining would be squashing together the NL East pretty good, with the Braves being the geographical outlier. New York, Philadelphia, DC, Norfolk, wow! Plus, more fans at Away games = more $$$ for MLB.
