It's been a week since I've last spoken to you.
The week consisted of baseball's Winter Meetings, where you are utterly lost if you can't tell the difference between Scott Boras and Jeff Borris.
Oddly enough, not that Mets-much happened.
We're the first organization with two players named Ambiorix, as Concepcion and Burgos have now given us that accolade.
And, even closing in on Christmas, we lost Jesus [Flores] to the Nationals in the Rule V draft.
Aside from that, though, this week for the Mets has been nothing more than Buzz. Harden and Haren and Zito and Zito and Zito.
And Zito. Who really cares? I find the buzz intriguing, but nothing really happened. There's nothing behind the rumors.
And so, I had left you this week. The Rangers played twice. One of them was the most embarrassing game possible. The other, well, was slightly more palatable.
The Jets played. They romped.
Here's what I'll promise you::
-Rangers over Senators today
-Mets hang on to Milledge, Pelfrey, Humber, and Heilman, ink Zito on December 22.
-Jets crush Bills on Sunday
-A review of Peter Handrinos' The Best New York Sports Arguments: The 100 Most Controversial, Debatable Questions for Die-Hard New York Fans by Wednesday.
See you then. Period.
