This is a family blog, so ...
Here's what I'm not going to censor: Carlos Beltran's thoughts when asked about his employment with Wilpon© at his press conference to announce that he has joined a new team ...
"All the controversy about the Walter Reed, the knee -- the organization trying to put me as a player that was a bad apple. I was this, I was that. I can deal with 0-for-4 and three strikeouts and talk to you guys. But when someone is trying to hurt you in a very personal way, trying to put things out there ... then we got trouble. Now, it's personal. When they say all that about myself, I was hurt. You cannot believe the organization that signed you for seven years is trying to put you down. In that aspect, I felt hurt."
"We had some schmuck in New York who paid him based on that one series. He’s sixty-five to seventy per cent of what he was."
Let Matt Callan summarize the last 20 years of Mets baseball for you:
The Wilpons summarized: embraced Bernie Madoff, smeared Carlos Beltran— Matthyule Coal-lump (@scratchbomb) December 20, 2013
just think about all the shitty, shitty players the Wilpons signed, and they saved their bile for Beltran— Matthyule Coal-lump (@scratchbomb) December 20, 2013
the same Wilpons who did everything they could to crush Beltran have never said one bad word in public about Bobby Bonilla— Matthyule Coal-lump (@scratchbomb) December 20, 2013
(Editor's Note, former Met Eric Hillman said some bad words on the Internet about Bobby Bonilla ... not for the first time either ..., so I feel this deserves equal time, if only to warm up your heart after the cold, cold words that you have just read):
Chayim: Bobby (Bonilla)’s still getting paid
Eric: (sighs) yeah. It’s disgusting. I’ve never met anyone like Bonilla in my life and I hope I never do again.
Chayim: Ok Eric, you’re “fantasy GM” and you have one Amnesty Clause to use on those teams. Bobby or Dallas? Who do you get rid of? Who was the bigger cancer?
Eric: Bonilla or Dallas? Bobby.
Worth noting that the Mets acquired Bobby Bonilla ... twice!!!
But Carlos Beltran gets smeared. And now he's in the loving arms of the New York Yankees, perhaps driven there via the scenic route of San Francisco and St. Louis by the Wilpons in much the same way that a lovesick teenager would drive the prom queen into the arms of a William Zabka character. Maybe Mets fans don't deserve the ending to that movie. Maybe we don't deserve to see Carlos Beltran park one into the short porch in Game 7 of the 2014 World Series. (And let's face it, we probably aren't going to see that movie since the Yankees might very well finish in last place this season with their brittle outfield and their starting rotation whose best pitcher might still be pitching for the Rakuten Golden Eagles with Kevin Youkilis. (P.S. That Hillman interview also contains a cautionary tale about playing in Japan. So Kevin ... if you're reading ... ahhhhh, you're not reading.)
But the Wilpons deserve to see that ending. They deserve to be locked in their suites with a Carlos Beltran World Series home run for the Yankees played on a loop on a 60 inch plasma screen projected by a clear encasing to protect from flying bottles.
Now, when is Jordany Valdespin's introductory Marlins press conference so that he can call Terry Collins a c**k sucker in public?
"Maybe Jordany Valdespin can now go play for the Marlins so that he can take selfies while wearing a Mets hat." -Me, December 3rd
I can't take credit for this one. This prophecy, as seen above, was self-fulfilling.no comments
