Print Those Playoff Tickets

R.A. Dickey, rumored to be the newest Met, is a knuckleballer. Which means that the pitch he's holding in this picture will probably be hit 500 miles if he ever throws it in a game. With our luck, he'll probably swear off the knuckleball as some sort of religious cleansing, and will learn how to throw the pitch pictured above from his new pitching and lifestyle guru, Matt Wise.

That posed picture all but groans, "Oh god, who's up now?"

Having lost their Putz, I guess the Mets feel they need Dickey to retain their manhood.

The Yankees pick up Javier Vazquez, the Mets are close to signing RA Dickey. "Nuff said". Good God, we suck!

Maybe Dickey will follow in the footsteps of another knuckleballer, and keep a diary next season and write a hillarious "Ball Four" style book about those lovable, wacky Mets.

Befuddling, isn't it? Being that our owner only cares enough to want "meaningful games in September", R.A. Dickey doesn't look that bad (it looks down right terrible). Now, if the owner had the gumption to pursue winning with verve and conviction, then I'd be ticked. If our owner has set the bar low and seems contented with wrecking our team, literally single handedly since he gained Doubleday's half of the team, then shouldn't we as fans be content too if we're real followers of this Mess...ooops. I mean Mets team? Sir Metstradamus? Do you have clairvoyance into when the "Won'tPons" will find that elusive CLUE?
signed, a new follower.

This Wilpon Winter is looking more like the movie Major League every day. It reminds me of the sequence where they say: I never heard of half of these guys and the ones I have are way past their prime. Most of these guys never had a prime. This guy here is dead. Well cross him off then.

I suppose the next move will be to find someone in the California Penal League to pitch.

Are you sure that isn't Ryan Church after his second concussion?

I have no idea who this guy is. And my guess is that once I do know who he is next summer I am not gonna be happy about it.
