Well that was ballsy

“No length. No Girth. And now… no Jared Porter.”


Well, that was ballsy.

A.J. Preller has been the KING of Ballsy up to now. The moves he has managed to pull off have erected the Padres from a limpish pretender to a hard team to discount in the NL West.

Just today, he managed to send off a few more prospects for what many baseball people consider a Stud in the Making in Joe Musgrove.

He does all this while keeping the highest rated studs on the farm, and all the while showing his brass balls to the rest of MLB. If there were ever an Alpha Male move in MLB, this was one.

In a somewhat surprising move, Jeff Passan of ESPN has reported that new Mets GM Jared Porter has decided to be “ballsy in a different way”.

I can guarantee this was not what Sandy Alderson told new Mets General Manager to “Work ballsy”.

Sure, the move for Lindor and Carrasco took some testicular fortitude, and the fact that the Mets are still in on George Springer is ballsy indeed. There’s something to be said for a guy trying to build some rigidity in an otherwise flaccid rotation.

What we kind of HAVE to talk about here is why Porter decided to send some photos of Lil’ Jared having some… um…. Recreation time to a group of female reporters.

I mean, there’s “ballsy” and there’s stupid.

And then… there’s this.

Yeah like that was surprising.

In one of the biggest Metsian moves of all time, it has been reported that one of the newest members of the Mets has decided to plant his flag a little further than the National League East. His pole was unwantedly yet firmly planted on the uncharted soil of many unsuspecting natives of MLB – and from what we hear, the women on the receiving end wanted absolutely NOTHING to do with his terra-deforma.

While I can’t pretend to know EXACTLY what happened, something happened. And as a man who has to see those bits on my own person from time to time, I would like to apologize for men at large.

And in the case of Porter, men at no so large.

No one deserves that sort of treatment, male, female, binary, non or anything in between.

Yet it’s not surprising, is it? This is the world we live in now.

A.J. Preller

Preller likes to keep his dick in his pants.

People don’t give a damn about each other.

I mean, there are bonehead moves… and then there’s this.

People also don’t get hair and makeup departments (and little wardrobe departments – which is the only way a guy is going to make that photo look good) when they absent-mindedly think it’s a good idea to pull something like that.

All I know is this.

We fellas aren’t looking too good if we start sending unsolicited, unlit, unwigged and unhabadashered photos of our – um…. Lifelong companions.

Just send dog pics like a normal person, will ya?

Oh…. And as for a new GM…. The Mets are on the Clock.

Also my apologies for the brevity on the subject. It not only was short, it lacked girth.
