And About Time, Too

Originally uploaded by dangunderman.
The Mets' Japanese Scapegoat has been traded, leaving an enormous hole in the roster where the boos used to go.

Yes, Kaz Matsui was a bust in godless New York, so the Godful Colorado Rockies picked him up. Not sure that he's Christian enough for them yet, they've sent him to shore up his Jesus skills in AAA Colorado Springs. Fortunately for the Rockies, Colorado Springs is home to right-wing freaks from James Dobson and his Focus on the Family to Ted Haggard and his New Life (Mega) Church. The nearby Promise Keepers will help Kaz become a "man of integrity," because "if you want to truly change the world, change the men."

And don't forget to split your infinitives, an important lesson for a player still using an interpreter.

Good luck and God-speed, young Kaz. BOOOOOO!

Did the Rockies really send Kaz down to the minors right away? That's great, but it means the Mets are paying most of his $8M a year so that he can play in the Colorado farm system. In exchange the Mets got the light-hitting Eli Marrero, who might actually be OK off the bench.

Marrero is a catcher who can play center field (was there for a few innings last night) and the other outfield positions, and first base, and though he has never played third in a major league game, told reporters,"Third sure how hard could it be", and becomes David Wrights back up at third.

Dan when does Bald get Effective again?

That really was the plan with Kaz, but apparently it was a short-lived one. He's playing with the actual Rockies already.

Marrero's a good pick-up, I think. Of course, for Kaz, a box of glue and a McDonald's Dollar Menu voucher would've been a decent trade.
