Besides waiting around to see if the Yanks can finally close the Big Unit deal, I have to give the Muts props for making this off-season fun to watch unfold. The Post’s Serby the Stupendously Shitbrained, not happy enough with the Pedro signing now official–and jeez, you gotta know I’m waiting for the first Nelson de la Rosa sighting–now wants the team from Queens to go get Manny.
As a Bronx boy, I love the idea, but I can’t buy the notion that the Wilpons are gonna let Minaya get all Boss George with the payroll, but it would be fun to have those two whackjobs running amok out in Queens. And giving Petey former Mut captain (and Brooklyn/Staten Island Golden Goomba) John Franco’s number may mean they need to draw a lot of Hispanic fans to counter any dropoff of Italian fannies in the seats.
But hell, the fodder those two could provide the NYC tabloids just boggles the mind…. Screw Boomer; those two unleashed in the city’s nightlife scene, getting the Muts major ink in the front of the papers in addition to the back pages, is something that would drive Darth Boss George freaking insane, and Boss in TotalNutBag mode is always fun to behold.
