Someone called up Boomer and Carton and mentioned Cerrone for some reason in the first sentence of being on the air.  Carton instantly tuned him out and started singing My Sharona, lol.

i like Scott but he had alot of up and down games. At the early season before injury he was very good after not so good.

And naturally, we'll probably see him in the playoffs going 2 innings and striking out the side twice.

Anyone see the Diamondbacks are looking to deal J.J. Putz after they got Addison Reed? Wouldn't that be a natural with Parnell questionable? Putz and one of their shortstops in a package deal. Yeah, I know Putz makes $7 million, but it's the last year of his contract.

He had a terrific year in Boston before signing with the Mets, but for the Mets he experienced the worst year of his career. Sound familiar?

Maybe they'll have a better club deal on Just For Men

@4EverMetsGod had nothing to do with it.  He's busy listening to all the "folks" in Alabama praying for Auburn.
