Thanks, But No Thanks

We all need to get our minds off this losing. Here is some comic relief, courtesy of our favorite relief pitcher: the Show himself.

Take a look at this, I just noticed it on the Mets' website:

Look at the "Live Auction Items". They look pretty cool. Shagging balls with Carlos Beltran could be neat. Golf is always fun, and I heard Tom Glavine was pretty good, so that would be interesting. A Spanish lesson from Jose Reyes would be entertaining, at least. A hitting clinic with Carlos Delgado might even be beneficial in life. But notice the fifth item on that list: "A pitching clinic with Scott Schoeneweis."

Oh boy, sign me up for that one!

"Hey Scott, what is it like to have a 7.00 ERA?"

"Hey Mr. Showen-whatever, what is the first thing that pops into your head when an opponent hits a three-run homer off of you?"

"It is a lot of fun to be the butt of every Met fan's joke, isn't it?"

"What do you do to walk a batter on four pitches? The mechanics on that must be so complex- could you please show me?"

"What is your favorite way to give up runs?"

"Do you think you could give some of that money back to Mr. Wilpon? I'm sure we could use it do find a suitable replac... I mean another suitable left-handed specialist."
