1. I don't care if the Mets just beat the Yankees two out of three. Get rid of Jerry Manuel and bring back Bobby V. I liked Manuel when his managerial tenure began with the Mets in 2008. But he's not what the team needs right now. It needs Bobby V. It needs a celebrity hothead to take some of the pressure off of the players. It needs a better handler of pitchers. It needs a guy who knows how to coddle babies (see Armando Benitez) and get the best of them. Bring back Bobby V.
2. Is it just me or is this recent Sports Illustrated cover on the "core" Yankees a bit weird? Why is Jeter looking away from the other three? The dude is so aloof that he can't even look at his teammates or the camera for the cover shot? And what exactly is going on with Posada and Rivera's knee?
If only they could add some needles sticking out of Pettitte's meaty thighs, this picture would completely sum up the "Core Four." Or maybe they could have added A-Rod lurking on the edge of the frame begging to be let in on the fun.
