BUT DO WE SOMEHOW GET KAZMIR BACK?
And, more specifically, to the Mets. And, since this hasn't been a fantastic off-season for Omar, I've avoided chiming in. Or chirping in. Or is it piping in? Man, even my cliches are rusty after a long off-season. Keith should be along soon to help me out.
But . . . good news is here. Good news in the absence of bad news sense. And what bad news could there have been? Well, to put it bluntly, Omar could've fucked up & signed Victor "I'm No Carlos" Zambrano to a minor league deal, setting the stage for a return to Flushing if & when (read: When) one of the Mets' ancient starters goes down in June. But this will not happen now.
Because The Killer Zambie has signed a minor league deal with The Blue Jays, where he'll join Tomo Ohka & John "I Won't Pitch To Paul LoDuca" Thompson in a rotation sure to deny B.J. Ryan of save opps, and increase the sale of antacids in Ontario all season long. He's gone. We can rest easy. Back to bed. Or go to work. I just report on shit pitchers leaving town; it's up to you to do what you want with the info.
Me? I'll smile.
