Mets wheeling and dealing for K-Rod

8 Dec

What comes to mind when you think of the Mets? 

  • Choke artists? 
  • September causalities? 
  • New York’s “other” baseball team? 
While all of the above are technically correct, we’d like to add one more to the list: innovators. 
Wait, we’re not kidding, hear us out.

The Mets’ brass implemented a new, radical strategy in an attempt to get top-notch hurler Francisco Rodriguez to the Big Apple to play in the Mets’ new stadium — Bankrupt Park. (Oops, we mean Citi Field.) 
Mid-way through a meeting in Las Vegas between the Mets and K-Rod, someone in a cheap suit rolled out a special roulette wheel. The image key below should help decipher what the stakes were, and we’re still waiting for confirmation on whether or not K-Rod played along or not. 
However, we did hear that Pete Rose offered his two cents: “Always bet on black.”
Here is the image key:

Frowny face: K-Rod goes elsewhere
Mets logo: K-Rod signs with the Mets
Spin Again: It means — duh! — spin again
Question mark: Spinners choice

    LOL! Love it guys! Though sorry, I think choke will always come to mind first for me. Sorry – still bitter about ’86.
