Can I Get the "Tommy John Surgery" Pendant In White Gold?

Ambiorix Burgos apparently carries $270,000 worth of jewelry with him ... because you never know when those Zsa Zsa Gabor Appreciation Society functions are going to pop up.

yeah - this was really weird. At least it isn't a spring training scandal story involving drugs, DUI or domestic violence.

Still, that much jewelry? You have to wonder where some people's priorities are. I guess they all can't be David Wright.

Anybody see this? Seems like we can expect fisticuffs between the Mets and Phillies, according to unnamed Phillie players and Pedro in the NY Post:

METS, PHILLIES GO MOUTH TO MOUTH
By BART HUBBUCH

February 22, 2008 -- PORT ST. LUCIE - If the Phillies want to brawl, Pedro Martinez says the Mets will put up their dukes.

Told yesterday that several Philadelphia players expect the budding NL East rivals to come to blows this season, Martinez responded with a dare.

"I don't believe there's a reason to be fighting, but we're over here," Pedro told The Post yesterday. "Basically, if [they're] going to have to brawl or whatever, we're over here. We'll wait."

Hey, "Go Mets", I noticed that article too, but mostly because of the disturbing mental image of the two opposing teams going "mouth to mouth", en masse, on field, with the crowd watching in horror. I know what the headline writer meant, I guess, but still, BLECHH....

They'll probably only have a fight in spring training when it doesn't even count... wait - it doesn't count anyway!

How about we beat them for once in an actual baseball game - which it seems hasn't happened in about a year.

I know what you're sayin' Demitri -I enjoy the brawls, and the crazy handshakes, too, but you HAVE TO WIN THE GAMES, like the 86 Mets did.

What, no witty comment on how Jeff Francoeur says that his team (the Unmentionables) are actually The Team To Beat?

ACTUAL QUOTE: "When I ran today, I was looking at all the names on the back [of the jerseys] and I was like, 'We've got a pretty good team.'"

If Hampton id healthy the Bravos have a very solid team. It should be an interesting year to say the least.

What did Stings forget his Mr. T starter kit in PSL last season, did the Amburglar pick it up?
