    Cheers everyone-
    Here’s to a swell 2010 for the NYMets – because I know were’ screwed in 2012 when we lose Reyes and Beltran and are featuring broken down Bay and probably the re-signed Luis Castillo.
    Maybe Omar is buying into the end of the world business and doesn’t care what happens then.

    Don’t buy the “Bay will collapse immediately” BS. He’s only 31 you know. He might suck in the field but his bat should stay strong.

    Beltran is in a walk year he will cover right left and center fields! He’ll bat 365 with amazing power. Just to suck us back in.

    Wonderful road conditions. Drove my husband to work, watched everyone else skid all over the place. Yay for Infiniti’s AWD snow drive — didn’t feel slippery to me at all.

    They closed the Lincoln Tunnel helix because so many cars and buses skidded all over the car. The radio guy described it as looking like a bumper car park.

    It’s supposed to end very soon though.

    The minute it appeared that Bay desired another location outside of the 617 area code, rumors of Bay breaking down were rampant. Peter Gammons, another card carrying member of Red Sox nation, said Bay would rather play in Beirut than Flushing. Now today, this stroke of genius by Steve Buckley of the Boston Herald. He mocks the Mets, claiming they are the fourth best team in New York, and questions what soured Bay on Boston. Perhaps you should look in the mirror. It has been whispered around baseball circles that Bay and his family weren’t enthralled with Boston, but to date they have taken the high road and not said very much, thus making it all pure speculation. It’s not easy living in a town with a fickle media and, based on Buckley’s column, two World Series titles haven’t softened these guys one bit. It’s almost a “you are with us or against us” type of mentality. – Mike Silva

    American International Group Inc. has lost a top executive due to the government’s limits on executive pay.

    AIG said Wednesday that vice chairman and general counsel Anastasia Kelly has resigned, effective immediately.

    Kelly left because of the reduction in her base salary that was mandated by the government’s pay czar, Kenneth Feinberg, AIG said.

    Honestly, now that we essential own AIG, we should be stablizing it with the intention of cutting it into little pieces, sell them off, and then eradicate the company.

    they have already sold or are selling a number of pieces.

    and I don’t think the govt is still putting money into the company. The door has closed.
