August 9th: A Picture's Worth 1000 Words (or maybe 30,000 of Wayner's)

"I blame YOU for sucking away whatever little joy was left in Mets broadcasts," says Phil Hecken, who produced the (fictional, alas) images you see above. "Now I'm constantly focusing on how awful Hagin is. I always thought he sucked, but I never realized HOW MUCH he did until you pointed it out." Welcome to my world, Phil.

Phil also reports that Wayne had a choice tidbit during Sunday's Mets/Phils game. "They were talking about how the Rays, who'd already been no-hit twice this year, were having another no-no tossed at them. And out of nowhwere, Wayne says, 'If the Rays get no-hit today, they're going to have to go back to being called the Devil Rays.' No explanation as to WHY they might have to do that. Howie didn't touch it."

In Wayne's world, being no-hit = bad, and the devil = bad, so those two things are, y'know, synonymous. Hey, it's self-explanatory!

In the words of Bugs Bunny, what a maroon. Fire Wayne Hagin already!


  1. meh I think the jist of Wayne's attempt at humor is pretty clear there, I am all for getting rid of the guy pronto but let's be fair

  2. I love the way he calls the action. He finishes describing a play 20 seconds after it is completed. he sound like he is writing a composition in 6th grade.
