Retraction

Sorry Met fans, I lost my temper last night. But after speaking to Omar (who rejected my ideas of releasing Wagner, sending him to Triple-A, or trading him along with David Wright to the Cardinals for ol' reliable Braden Looper), it's become clear that I'm stuck with Billy Wagner. So I've come up with a new idea. It's obvious Wagner is a terrible closer, but what if I put him in a situation where all the pressure was off him? I've decided that from now on he'll come into the game in the first inning, followed by Sanchez, Heilman or one of the other guys (depending on if we get an early lead or not), and then my starter to close it out for the last 6 or 7 innings. I think this idea is going to revolutionize baseball just like the other modern inventions of the "bullpen" and the "double switch".

    This is brilliant! I heard you on the FAN yesterday saying that Arroyo throws guys off by "pitching backward." This is like another way of pitching backward. Imagine how this move will utterly bemuse the opposition. You're a genious, Willie.

    Also, any comment on Gary Cohen's remark that you call Endy Chavez your "Wishnik"?

    Wagner was upset because his sandwich was not fresh toasted.

    How about having the catcher pitch to the pitcher. It would be pretty hard to hit the ball if it was coming from behind you? I am sorry for questioning your moves but you are assuming that our starters can last seven innings.
