NL East 2011 Haiku Predictions

By Stuart Shea

ATLANTA BRAVES
It’s a New Brave World,
New players, new chief, newspeak,
And an old Chipper.

FLORIDA MARLINS
A Southern poser:
If teams play in the forest
Will anyone care?

NEW YORK METS
Luis Castillo
Will drop pop-ups someplace else
This sunny summer.

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
The best rotation?
Either what the Phillies have
Or the earth itself.

WASHINGTON NATIONALS
Despite higher Werth,
From Ankiel to Zimmerman
They’ll still be boring.

    KB Wrong, again. It’s Christie and the Republicans who will pick off the Dem votes they need to pass Christie’s budget and tool kit. The poicailitns have seen the handwriting on the wall and they know the populace is ready to throw out anyone who wants to raise taxes and support the public labor unions. I agree that there’s a great chance for a shutdown, but the Dems will only be costing their labor masters a week or two of pay because Christie will NEVER approve paying them for the time they are off from work.Question for all those who favor the latest Millionaires tax (and for the first time we don’t have to put it in quotes, because it really would only hit people bringing in a Million Dollars a year) McGreevey was the first to enact a millionaires tax, soaking those who made more than $500K for 9% per year, up from 6.4% (a 40% jump), and Corzine followed with a temporary tax jump to 10.25%; and neither seems to have fixed NJ’s problems (EXPENSES), so what makes you believe that this latest money grab will do anything other than kick the can down the road as unsustainable programs are funded for yet another year? And what happens NEXT year when there’s yet another revenue gap? The issue of who’s sacrificing the most is just a giant smoke screen.
