As One "Idiot" Leaves, Another "Idiot" Comes To Town
Now, another "Idiot" is taking his place @ Shea Stadium, tonight & his name is Bronson Arroyo; Bronson as in Bronson & not Brandon, as we've heard Tim Mc Carver, utter over & over again; he's 1-1 Lifetime, with Pittsburgh @ Shea & PNC Park;
He was about to tag out "A-Fraud" on a Sac Bunt; A-Rod slapped the ball out of Arroyo's Glove; A-Rod was called out for Interference; a barrage of pictues of A-Rod are all over the web, with him wearing a black handbag, or a huge Hamburger Helper's Mitt, because of that act of desperation;
The 2004 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, dubbed "The Idiots", were fun to watch, but with all the arguements inside the club, "The Idiots" are being all but pushed out & phased out;
It reminds me of the Breakup of another band of "Idiots", who were similar in some respects, namely the 1986 World Champion Mets, who actually won & were favored, despite Doc Gooden's need to take some coke up his nose. That "Gang of Idiots" were broken up; Shea Stadium suddenly wasn't so much fun anymore, but a # of that team, is making themselves known, especially with managing & coaching; Two Managers, Ron Gardenhire(Twins) & John Gibbons(Blue Jays) were bench players on the '86 Ball Club.
& a 2004 "Idiot" pitches for The Mets; He's The Big Prize; #45 Pedro Martinez;
More "Idiots" to come, later this season.
