BASEBALL: Unnecessary Roughness

This is just cruel.

Listening to anything Steve Phillips says about baseball on "Baseball Tonight" is like listening to anything the Bush Administration says about keeping America safe.
Seriously, what do they have to do to show you how much more wrong they could possibly be?

Wow, that's cold.

Was the Kazmir incident on Phllip's watch or a Duquette deal?

Either way, it sucked for a all the important reasons:
Met's not making a move that season anyway
We got the crappy Zambrano
He was hurt
Kazmir was a young, cheap lefty with a 95 mph fastball.

I am crying right ow.

At least we still have that Bannister kid. He looks good.

It was a Duquette deal. This is something that Phillips didn't muck up.

Yeah, it sux that we traded away Kazmir. Boo hoo. I guess we'll have to content ourselves with having the best pitcher in baseball instead.

At least we still have that Bannister kid. He looks good.

Losing Kazmir hurt. Bannister? Meh.

As Johnny Carson as Karnac once said, "May a thousand fleas infest (their) codpiece."

If the Mets had Bannister sitting in the rotation between Santana and Kazmir, with Maine right behind and Pedro coming off the DL, they would be pretty much unstoppable...at least in the NL.
