Snack Food

So the Mets lost out on Derek Lowe ... but their response was swift and significant:

Alex Cora: Utility Infielder.

It's kinda like going to a fancy restaurant and ... after being told that they're all out of Filet Mignon ... settling for a bag of Funyuns.

I'm not sure which five star restaurant offers Filet Mignon and Funyuns, but if there is I'm sure Mike Stanton not only knows about it, but has it on his speed dial.

I like Cora as MIF, especially if Tatis is going to be the CIF. The Mets still have to figure out a way to off-load Marlon Anderson to strengthen the bench.

What do you want Minaya to do? Sit in a corner and weep?

Metstradamus said...

Which corner ... left field corner, or right field corner? And are we making him wear a pointy hat too?

Funyons would be a nice complement to filet mignon. You know, a fried oniony type carb.

And they have the most comedic value of any snack food . . . If you went with Fritos, I would not have yukked it up nearly as much.

You know since Funyuns were introduced in 1969, obviously a significant year for us Met fans, I think that the powers that be should strongly consider the stadium name Funyun Stadium when Citibank goes under. They can even replace the HR apple with a giant HR funyun. The possibilities are endless!

I once read that Matt Stairs' favorite food/drink combo was mountain dew and funyons
