Sandy, Sandy Baby

Yesterday a list with the 13,000 names of Bernie Madoff’s victims was released and there were some very interesting names on the list. For example, how Madoff could bilk Sandy Koufax out of his money is simply astonishing, he’s Sandy KOUFAX! How dare you Bernie. Sure, you cheat a bunch of other rich people, no big deal, but Sandy is the greatest Jewish baseball player ever, and you tried to ruin him! For shame.

Koufax it turns out went to high school with Mets owner Fred Wilpon who had millions of dollars invested with Madoff as well, so presumably we can also blame the Wilpons for hurting Koufax. Among the victims was also former Mets “star” Tim Teufel, currently the manager of the Mets’ entry in the Florida State League. How DARE you Madoff?

The Wilpons were heavily invested with Madoff, with Fred, Jeff, Jeff’s wife, Jeff’s sister, Jeff’s brother in law, multiple charity organizations, two Brooklyn Cyclones entities and various other Mets related businesses all losing millions of dollars. So that’s why there isn’t any money left in the budget for Manny…

As a Jew I’m ashamed with Bernie Madoff. Sure, taking $50 BILLION is bad, but I think we can all understand it, but to rob from SANDY KOUFAX!!!!?!?!?! Unacceptable. Madoff knew it was a scam, why didn’t he tell Sandy to invest elsewhere, it’s one thing to rob from fellow Jews, it’s quite another to rob from Sandy Koufax, and that is something I will never forgive.

What Willie Randolph Should Expect Today

Willie Randolph’s Damoclean adventure seems to be coming to an end, and none too soon.

“These are our coaches today. I think we’re not playing up to our potential. I always leave room to evaluate things.” Those are the less-than-encouraging words of Mets GM Omar Minaya after the Mets split a doubleheader against the Texas Rangers yesterday.

And this is what Willie should expect from Omar later today:

Especially since, according to news reports from the New York Daily News, Omar Minaya has received permission from the owners of the Mets, the Wilpons, to fire Willie and Rick Peterson and to have Jerry Manuel take over as manager.

I just hope the Wilpons saved a little of that firing sauce for Omar Minaya too.

And just to help out the poor Mets fans who have been suffering so recently, here’s some video from when Josh Hamilton, Milton Bradley, Ian Kinsler, Michael Young and Ryan Rupe decided to turn the infield tarp into a giant slip-and-slide during the rain delay and of Saturday’s game.
