Sorry but I've been behind on the show today and am just not catching up on Tivo. I was in the middle of the Jerry Manuel report when I was once again blown away by Mike's unprepared nature. Here's what he said to Manuel regarding who will be the Mets closer:
Mike: Is somebody designated to be the closer?"
Jerry: Well Ayala will be the guy. He's done a good job for us. He would be the guy if we came to that situation..
Mike (cutting him off): So you're going to give him a chance to close?
Jerry: Yeah, he's saved four or five games for us already, so we'll give him every opportunity to do that.
What Jerry Really Wanted to Say: Mike, have you not watched our team the last two weeks? Ayala has been our only closer. He's the guy I have been giving the ball to every time we have been in a save situation over the last 10 days or so. Shit man, I thought I was just winging it here as manager (breaks out laughing hysterically), but you even worse as a talk show host. Damn, I'm about to go all gangsta on you.
