As One "Idiot" Leaves, Another "Idiot" Comes To Town

OK, so Millar had a weekend in Corona, shots of Jack & all; He dove to his right, but the Double by Jose' Reyes, was to his left; This is why he's one of the "Beloved Idiots" of 2004;

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.

Petey at Fenway....how great is that! And we will win. Petey payback time, Michael. P.S. You don't have to agree with everything Reb says. She's pushing the panic button, and I like what I see. Optimism....a great thing.

Pedro's Toe was disrespected by the shower floor:

He'll blame it on Epstein for not giving him 4 Years.

Sorry to correct you Michael, but Ron Gardenhire didn't play on the 1986 Mets. 1985 was his final major league season. I remember he got hurt early that year and called it a career. I liked him a lot, as he was a tough scrappy player. But he was injury-prone, and he turned his attention to coaching, and then managing.
