As I woke up this morning for work I was trying to figure out if I was dreaming last night or was I part of one big episode of Punk’d. The Mets looked like they landed the bat that they wanted in Carlos Gomez from the Brewers for Wheeler and Flores. Flores was crying on the field during the game, Collins had no idea of a trade happening, and Sandy denied that there was or would be a trade. Now reports are coming out that the trade was scuttled due to medical issues. No, not Wheeler’s. Carlos Gomez’s. Supposedly the Mets backed out of the trade due to something being wrong with Gomez’s hip. Scott Boras, Gomez’s agent said there is nothing wrong with the hip in question. Damn, I’m getting dizzy…. Scully!! watch out…the Pizza Boy is a vampire…..
