While the National League was putting the finishing touches on their 5-1 over the American League in the 2011 All-Star Game, Mets GM Sandy Alderson was busy working out a trade that is sure to get people talking.
The win assured the National League home field advantage in this year’s World Series, which apparently meant very little to the Mets because about a half an hour after the game, they announced a trade that will send Francisco Rodriguez and cash to the Milwaukee Brewers for two players to be named later. A move that, according to Craig, is the beginning of the end for those ‘Not So Amazin’ Mets this season.
Now the writing has been on the wall for this move, and more moves are likely to follow, but Craig thinks the timing stinks. With that said, as a fan (while portraying his Mets fan side), Craig feels like he has been sold a bill of goods and wants his money back for his tickets. Boomer admitted to being happy that K-Rod is gone, citing the aggravation that he brings to the table, both on and off the field.
As for the Yankees, their captain, Mr. 3000 himself , Derek Jeter, is still taking all sorts of grief after skipping last night’s festivities in Phoenix. Boomer & Craig think the criticism is still well-deserved…
