You Know Your Closer Sucks When...

... he's taking plays out of the Tom Gordon playbook.
Ayala was on only because, when the Nationals called down to get closer Chad Cordero to warm up, Cordero rose -- and promptly threw up in his glove. Save the jokes about how that's what the Mets were doing all week. This was a serious situation.

"It was kind of weird," Acta said.

Cordero said he hadn't felt bad all day. But when he rose to warm up, he felt something. Some vomit escaped. "I grabbed my glove," he said, "and everything else came out."

That's a hell of a quote.

I'd suggest that the Nats Marketing Dept use that next year, instead of that stupid ass "Pledge Your Allegience" crap. Picture it: Nationals '08: Grab Your Glove And Let It Come Out.

(That whole story is a perfect example of why so many people are going to miss that particular writer /asskissing)
