The Young And Stupid Defence

Although A-Rod, thankfully does not play for the Mets and the Mets are happily basking in anonymity whilst the massive klieg light of A-Rod's dog and pony steroid show trundles forward, it's virtually impossible, after listening to that comedic little press conference today, to think too hard this early about who will wind up the 5th starter for the Mets and whether Jose Reyes will ever return and leave his newborn daughter behind to bat third for the Mets.

So my apologies for blaspheming these pages with a little tidbit about A-Rod and the Yank-Mees, but today, front and centre, The Young and Stupid Defence simply must take precedent.

*****

late addition: couldn't help but notice Beltran's public exhortation to "kill" Cole Hamels.

Presumably he intends that metaphorically but the spirit is exciting. Can't wait for Hamel's first Bankrupt Park appearance.

Speaking of Bankrupt Park, came across these very chilling Chopper 800 photos of the destruction of Shea by Tom Kaminski which seem eerily evocative of 9/11.

The most accurate description I ever heard of A-Rod was that he played baseball like he was watching himself in a mirror. He always knows where the tV camera is at all times. What is this crap about wanting to earn the fan's respect back? That is gone. He cheated. He cannot uncheat. And he cannot make up for it. Because he can't hit in October.

jdon, couldn't agree more, but frankly, the young and stupid defence is a believable defence -
considering how utterly stupid he still is to this day.
well the search is on for the magical cousin!

Over the next few weeks WSBGM's will be breaking down each of the NL East teams' rosters. First on the docket is the infield (outfield, rotation, and bullpen to follow). There's a poll to vote on the best NL East infield following the breakdown of each teams' players.
