Sandy vs. Sandy: A Tale of The Tape

An article by posted on October 28, 2012

Hurricane Sandy is churning its way up the Eastern seaboard.  No, I’m not talking about Mets’ general manager Sandy Alderson.  I’m talking about an actual meteorological event here.  But now that I think of it, the Mets’ Sandy has a few things in common with Mother Nature’s Sandy.

Let’s take a look at the tale of the tape between Hurricane Sandy and Sandy Alderson to see how similar they are.  Hey, it beats talking about all the former Mets who might end up celebrating a World Series victory tonight (Angel Pagan, Marco Scutaro, Xavier Nady, Joaquin Arias and yes, even Guillermo Mota).

Enjoy my attempt at humor in the face of a serious storm and please do your best to stay safe when Sandy arrives – the one that’s not currently in the Mets’ front office!

 

                 Hurricane Sandy
                 Sandy Alderson
Churning its way up the Eastern seaboard
Hoping to move up in the Eastern division
Expected to cause widespread power outages
Is used to seeing team-wide power outages
Barometric pressure continues to lower
Pressure from the fans continues to rise
Continues to push its way forth
Continues to watch his team finish fourth
Flushing Bay might overflow its banks
Would have more bank if not for Jason Bay
100 million wish to be spared
Wishes the Wilpons could spare $100 million

About the Author ()

Ed Leyro was hatched in the Bronx, but spent most of his youth in Queens at Shea Stadium. Apparently, all that time spent at Mets games paid off as Ed met his wife (The Coop) for the first time at Citi Field during its inaugural season. Guess the 2009 season was good for something after all. In addition to his work at Mets Merized Online, Ed also owns, operates and is head janitor at Studious Metsimus, where he shares blogging duties with Joey Beartran. For those not in the know, Joey is a teddy bear dressed in a Mets hoodie. Clearly, Studious Metsimus is not your typical Mets blog.
