Picture Lesson: The Albatross

Today we have our weekly wildlife lesson for the children. Kiddies, this is an albatross:


Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.

    the picture of perez is perfect.he is the personification of an albatross.his free agent signing makes the castillo signing look good.he demoralizes the fans, the players and the announcers.if i never see him start another game it will be too soon.do u folks realize that for his 12 mill, we could have signed bobby abreu for left, orlando hudson for second and had enough left over for pedro for 1 year?nice job omar.i can’t wait till u are fired.one more thing, has anyone ever seen sean greene and aaron heilman in the same room together?omar, u actually traded for a guy who is a carbon copy of heilman.he has one pitch and he can’t throw it for consistent strikes..PLEASE FIRE OMAR!!!
