Today, the two babies of New York's MLB team owners, and members of the lucky sperm club, showed why they still need their pacifier.
Chien-Ming Wang, in an inter-league game, while running the bases suffered a foot injury that may keep him out for the rest of the season. And, Baby Boss is angry saying, "...the National League needs to join the 21st century. I've got my pitchers running the bases, and one of them gets hurt."
WOW, an MLB player running the bases gets hurt and Baby Boss wants wants MLB to change it. Hey, Baby Boss maybe you should go back to your horse farm, you sure don't know enough about baseball.
NY's National League team, being run by the owner's baby son, pulled a swift one by firing their manager in the middle of the night and after he, and the two coaches that also were let go, flew cross country and won against the mighty Los Angeles Angels.
The New York Mets are a bunch of under achievers. Perhaps they should have followed the Mariners' lead and fire their GM who with "full autonomy" gave his bosses the oldest and highest paid NL team and a depleted Minor League system.
Now, the Mets still reeling from their "7 & 17" September 2007 swoon will get a kick in the pants and be expected to pass the surging Philadelphia Phillies in the months ahead.
Of course, the Mets and Yankees owners will not fire their sons, but in the end maybe they'll go back to their day jobs and let their dads run a Major League team in Major League fashion.
