good riddance

POST #    227

last night, the mets traded armando benitez to the cross-town evil empire for some low level minor leaguers. while armando has the most saves in the majors since 2000, he also has meltdowns when it counts, and leads the national league in blown saves this year with seven. so he heads to the bronx for a different role - setting up games for their closer. here is to him blowing every chance at that. how perfect would it be? yankees vs. red sox playing for the al east (or any situation really - just one that counts), top of the 8th inning, armando comes in to pitch the inning. no one on base, no outs, yankees up by one. he gives up a walk followed by a first pitch home run to manny ramirez. yankees go home. no playoffs, no nothing. sorry. if he does well? not as fun, but still okay, since the mets unloaded his salary.

squats, giving up a home run in the 9th, or an impending problem in his pants?

for jack curry's take on the trade, read here.
