Do you think Omar set his alarm clock for tomorrow morning? Do you think he even knew the trading deadline was today? I mean, seriously, for all the garbage that was traded for useful players over the past few days, Omar couldn't snag one player? I mean, the Frenchy trade was a trade for the sake of making a trade. I liked it, for that reason and it's worked out well for the Mets. At the time, however, it was panned across the interwebs as a horrible trade. Still, I didn't care and Omar appears to have lucked out. I have to say, I was terrified that I was going to hear something like Wright and Pelfrey for Halladay so I'm glad that didn't happen. But, I mean, he couldn't grab a LaRoche, V. Martinez, Hairston or someone like that? He sucks.
Now, I was listening to Richard Neer this morning (cure for insomnia) and all I heard all morning was a repeat of the following:
- Tiger throws his clubs. I can't watch him. Boo hoo. My kids, bad example, etc.
- Big Papi, boo hoo, steroids, boo hoo, media ripped Alex, boo hoo
I am so glad the rest of the country can't see and hear what a bunch of sissies NY area sports fans have turned out to be. It's a GD embarrassment.
