This wager occurred after Cashman recorded nearly $500 million in "on the books" payroll, signing free agents. What I forgot is that we still had Soriano for another 2 years at about $10million more per year than he was ever worth.
I forgot about a number of rational factors because I was entertained by a group of guys with black, silk shirts and silver neckties, at Chris Christies' Vegas steak house, and could order any combination of drinks I favored, all night long. It was " on the house" they said. And by morning's dawn, so was I.
After 5 innings last night, I crashed. We hadn't scored a run and every threat to do so was lame. And we never came through when it mattered. Sori, I think, is still batting zero.
I see we scored a run, and our spring phenom ( Solarte ) was 0-2 in his debut with reality. So his spring was a mirage. Another bum.
Anyone want to take a piece of my Vegas wager today? I am giving discounts.
Or my house.
