Suspended Animation

Does he drink it? Or rub it on his elbow? Nobody knows.

To think I was actually concerned about how good Livan Hernandez looked against the Cardinals ... or how bad Freddy Garcia looked in the same game ... or that Ron Villone is 105 years old. Now, none of it matters. It doesn't matter because Johan Santana might miss Opening Day, and beyond.

Manny Ramirez, Will Ohman, and Bernie Madoff could dance across the outfield wearing tutus and tiaras at Tradition Field tomorrow and nobody would care, because everything is in suspended animation until we know more about Johan's irritated elbow. And anybody who's ever been through cryonics will tell you that suspended animation sucks. The food is expensive, the service is subpar, and they play too many World Series of Poker marathons. And good luck finding an adult beverage that isn't watered down ... it's just like the beer at Shea.

Damus, I like how Johan has his whole Jay-Horwitz-scripted crapola bout how there are 162 games, they have a job to do and it shouldn't matter whether he starts on the first day or whenever. Yeah, Pedro said that in 2006. Nuff said. I'm worried.

$ for Pelfrey

I've come up with some money making schemes for those MLB players effected by the Stanford Financial Group fraud investigation.

Give it a plug if you like it, thanks.

Expect the worst, hope for the best. The mantra for any Mets fan. *sigh*
