Sorry Charley

"Something suddenly came up."

-R. Furcal

First A.J. Burnett, and now Rafael Furcal. The Braves need a date for the prom.

But before you laugh at them, consider this: The Braves still have money ... so eventually, someone is going to sign with them.

Also eventually, somebody is going to make an offer to Oliver Perez. In this offseason of economic uncertainty, all rules of engagement (for example, Perez's desire to return to Southern California to pitch) are going right out the window. If you close your eyes, you could see Ollie coming back to Citi Field in a Braves uniform shutting down the Mets three times ... couldn't you?

Oh Jesus! I didn't think of that. I'm going to have nightmares about this. Ollie wouldn't do that to us...sign with the Braves. Would he?

Don't DO that to me! Now I'm gonna have nightmares of that until he gets signed...

You'd have to think its Ollie, Garland, Sheets, or Lowe for that last spot in the rotation...unless a trade happens (unlikely). They'd do best with Lowe...he seems to have overplayed his hand and is now the last gal standing at the prom. Perhaps they can get him cheap (like K-Rod in terms of years at least) if there are no other significant offers? I'd be surprised if Ollie comes back as it is obvious he is not the Mets' first choice.....coming back for him would be like moving out and coming back to live with your parents.

So far, A+ for both the Yankees and Mets this offseason. No one else has done anything close to what they've done.

Don't talk about loosing Ollie. I love Ollie.

Please let someone else feel the frustration that Ollie is capable of inflicting. I hated watching that son of a bith pitch...

By the way, that's the Marcia Brady I was in love with as a kid. Good picture of her.

Marcia Brady is a piece of ass.
