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!

Barometric pressure continues to lower
Pressure from the fans continues to rise
Continues to push its way forth

Flushing Bay might overflow its banks
Would have more bank if not for Jason Bay
