I've written a poem:

We finally beat Philly
We must still fire Willie
That's really not silly
But don't hire Mazzilli

I'm Metstradamus, and I approve your message.

You will rue the day Metstradamus!

I'll take Famous Titties for $400.

That was hilarious. I love your website. Nobody else could possibly make me laugh as consistently as you do. Other sites are analyzing the game, or whining about how it wasn't great enough. You, you just make me laugh.

Thank you!

psychiatric help? I think that ship has sailed.

I think from this day forward, April 9th will be known as Jimmy Rollins appreciation day. (at least Jimmy Rollins' ankle).

I am writing from my desktop, because I laughed so hard at your post this morning that I spit coffee all over the keyboard of my laptop. If I have to replace it, Metstradamus, you owe me.

Secondly, when we fans go to Mets.com to reserve our complimentary psychiatric consultations, how long will we have to wait in the "virtual waiting room" (this is a real feature of the website) while we uneasily eye the other patients nearby picking at their clothing and talking angrily to themselves?

Word has it that Rick Astley will be the honorary Grand Marshal and will be singing the National Anthem before and during the parade.

I don't want Eric Bruntlett serving me punch. I just bought these pants.

Maybe Juan Samuel should make an appearance at the parade - you know, sort of bury the hatchet with him like the Sox did with Buckner the other day?

Maybe Vince Coleman can supply the fireworks for the parade.

Might want to change your hate list to a love list and add Bruntlett. Fucker can't even lay down a bunt...
