In the last Blow, I wrote about Vic “Take The” Black and his injury.
To summarize, Vic Black has a herniated disk in his neck and the team said it’s an improvement since his last exam. Metsblowers laughed and said, “Great satire, Mr. Metsblow!”
Here’s the thing: It wasn’t satire. I tried writing that in the last blow but I didn’t get the message across, so let me say it again: IT WAS NOT SATIRE. THE METS ACTUALLY ISSUED THAT STATEMENT.
The Vic Black quote is just another classic example of how Metsblow writes itself. They have a monkey doing PR/damage control. It’s utterly ridiculous. I’ve now read the quote 5 times. It can’t be real, but it is. Vic Black’s neck is about to twist off with a new injury that the Mets have not previously diagnosed, and they’re saying it’s an improvement. Meet the Mets! Meet the Mets! Step right up and greet the Metsblow.
