Of Wake, Pap, Some Guy named Burgos & Lastings

Let's face facts, in Red Sox Nation, dearly beloved, as Tim Wakefield(As in Tim, Tim, & NOT Bill, the way you put it in '03 in the "ALCS on FOX")was actually, losing effectiveness, in part, due to the early absence of Mr Mirabelli, his personal catcher. But, Tim is NOT getting any younger, like most of us are, & it didn't help to have a "Pitching Coach" like Albert Samuel Nipper(1986 World Series ARSONIST):

Face it(Unless He has his arm bothering him in September, from all his relief work), Jonathan Papelbon IS the Future, throwing 50 Great Pitches, & should be at form by Opening Day, provided that Messrs Farrell & Francona, don't turn him into a reliever, while being a starter, hence, straining resources;

Red Sox(On NESN)defeated the Mets 9-5;

Sr A. Burgos throws a Straight Down The Middle Fastball. Burgos will be reminicent of one Armando(YOU SUCK)Benitez, one who NO ONE wants in a Money Situation, hence "Professor Rick" has to help Burgos to develop another pitch, or the Shea Denizens will compare Omar Minaya to(Heaven Help Them)STEVE PHILLIPS, who could've been replaced by George COSTANZA;

On Lastings Milledge;
I think that the Red Sox sent him a Dozen Long Stemmed Roses, for his outfield play at Fenway Park, last June(If "Call Of The Green Monster" is any indication), though there were rumors of the Sox FO, looking to get Lastings in a trade, which means that instead of "Manny Being Manny", it would've been "Lastings Being An Arse & A Half";

Red Sox Bullpen=Nerve-Wracking, yet the starters look good;
Mets Bullpen remains solid, DESPITE Burgos;
The Regular Season begins in a few weeks & THAT is the true test;

Words of Caution;

In Boston, BEWARE of Larry Lucchino;
In Corona, Queens, BEWARE of JEFF Wilpon(Aaron Sele? The New Trachsel? Will Beer Sales go up to the PUKING Level, Jeff?);

Note that Fenway Park, will expand SRO & possibly build in new Grandstand Seats, as Fenway modernizes;
The new Mets Park, Citi Field(Or is it Ebbets Field II), opens in '09;

& Mets Fans, pray for Pedro's SPEEDY Recovery as he reports no pain in throwing, as Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez, celebrates either his 42nd or 47th Birthday in May(Take Your Pick);

Until NEXT Time;

Michael

I will sound decidedly ignorant here, Michael. Is the new Mets park going to be in Brooklyn?

In the Shea Stadium Parking Lot, next to Shea Stadium, in Corona, Queens, Suldog, is the new ball park site.

Hey Michael:

I think Wake still have a number of years of 14-16 wins in him..:-)

"Lastings Being An Arse & A Half"..LOL Now that is funny!

Good stuff, all!

Hope you are well!

Depending on how good Farrell is as a pitching coach, he might win that amount:

After all, Nipper was so clueless;

The Key here is the Pitching Coach & the possibility that Francona chose this guy because of being a buddy of his, which could be fatal.
