Shelley Duncan Should Scissor Kick Someone
The problem with off days is that they provide little material for bloggers to talk about. Most of the time, us bloggers will just recycle old topics like Joba the starter vs. Joba the reliever, why the Mets suck, and whether Gardner or Melky should start at center. The lack of material doesn't just effect us bloggers, but beat writers too. The New York Times, Journal News, and New York Post all have articles about A-Rod. Apparently, he's slumping. One article of interest is this one from the Daily News. Its about how everyones been calling for Posada's head since they think he's a horrible catcher and can't call a game. Apparently, since Burnett can't find the strike zone, Posada can't catch. Never mind that he has a perfect game in his repetoire, and has caught many a gem over the years. Jeter chimes in, since he of course has been receiving the same criticism for years now, but he's been quite a capable shortstop this season, which should shut some people up for now. Basically, are there better shortstops and catchers out there? Yes. Would I want any of them over Jeter and Posada? No. So in conclusion, Shelley Duncan should scissor kick someone in the face. Preferably Perez Hilton.
