Sell the Mets... Sell the Mets...

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

For all those Harry Potter fans out there, it is known that no one likes a Rita Skeeter. Skeeter is a witch who writes tell-all biographies and works as a reporter for the Daily Prophet. Skeeter's writing tends to be sensationalist, and sometimes outright dishonest.

For all those Yankee fans out there, it is known that no one likes Selena Roberts.

Wait, let's correct that:

For all those A-Rod fans out there, it is known that no one likes Selena Roberts.

So, whom do the Mets fans have?

Well, as written on The Star Ledger's website under the upcoming video, "Dave Howard, the Mets' executive vice president of business operations, went on Fox Business Network on Monday to shoot down the claims of author Erin Arvedlund, who said Friday that owner Fred Wilpon would be forced to sell the team because of losses related to the Bernie Madoff scheme. Former Mets GM Jim Duquette also appeared on the program, after criticizing the Mets on his radio show Sunday.'

So the lady's name is Erin Arvedlund; a Rita Skeeter if I ever saw one.

Either way, I happen to think Dave Howard is lying but that's my own opinion. Why would he get so mega-defensive if not? Is he trying to show off to the Wilpons? Is he having a bad year?

Welcome to the party, Dave.

Good find.

I think Skeeter is lying. Why is she so quiet? It is her opinion so there is not much to elaborate on - I hear.

Either way, squash her like a beetle*.

I don't exactly believe Dave Howard these days. He needs to come out from behind our obstructed view seats.

But if the Mets are going up for sale, I'd contribute a couple of bucks to get in the game.
