So Healey wants A-Rod on the Mets. Holy helldogs, I want every 45 by Minnesota Marv Blihovde & The Vanguards…but it ain’t happening.
Sign A-Rod watch him make the Mets must-see TV on ESPN (and make Steve Phillips look silly in the process, which should be incentive enough for any Mets fan to urge ownership to roll the dice) hit home runs and rewrite history. Would be refreshing to see a Mets player do that for once.
Give him his tent, move Wright to first base, and pay him his gazillion dollars. The Mets fan loves David Wright, but the baseball fans will come from miles around to see A-Rod set records. People who would never even look at a Mets jersey will shell out 200 bucks for a Mets black uni with a “3” on the back. A-Rod might be a primadonna, but he respects Willie Randolph and will play for him and represent the organization well.
He just might get the Mets back to the postseasson in the process, their first-ever MVP and perhaps, allow the team to make enough money to woo Santana next offseason.
