    If MLB combined teams in NY

    Its January 11th, I'm so bored with baseball right now that even Colin Cowgill is looked at as a "Major trade" so give me a break on coming up with a crazy idea that would never happen. Just for fun....

    If MLB contracted a NYC team to make a "Super Team" called the Menkees,

    #1 would you root for this new team and adopt them as your own

    #2 would you switch allegences to another team in MLB

    #3 would you stop watching MLB

    #4 What would your lineup look like

    #5 What would your Pitching staff look like

    #6 What would the team colors be?

    I would root for this team as I cried my eyes out

    Lineup/poitions Davis,cano,Jeter,Wright, The Entire Yankee outfield, D'Aunard (Because both teams have major catching problems

    Rotation/Bullpen CC, Santana, Niese, hughes, Harvey, Nova (Wheeler in the wings)
    Rivera, Robertson, Joba, Parnell, Francisco, Edgin

    Team Colors Add orange to the yankee Blue, Keep the Yankee NY

    While Capt Moroni is certainly one of my favorite posters, this thread has earned a nomination for the "Oy" Award.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Look, I said I was bored......I hate this offseason about as much as I hated last years. It's either post on the Knicks board where 90% of the posters are under 14 years old and change their minds based on every win or loss, or make up something absurd. now play along, and answer my ridiculously stupid questions.

    Joe Torre is the Obvious choice, coached both teams and is actually still breathing.

    As the Captain said, when Cowgill or Cowgirl whatever is the big offseason trade and we spin round round like Dead or Alive about the HOF shafting of Piazza this is the result, the New York Menkees.

    The ace of the Menkees would be C.C. Santana and the best hitter would be Robinson Wright and the closer Francisco Rivera.

    If they combined it would be predominately Yankees with some token Mets sprinkled in to appease the mass of Mets fans. I'd say if Niese is still on the Mets by the trade deadline, him with Wright, Wheeler, Harvey and T.A. Ike as the D.H. if they are able to send A-Flop packing.

    How about merging the Mets/Yanks with a Florida team...Mets merge with the Rays with the Rays owner taking control of the combined team in Queens; with the Yanks getting the Marlins...both of the current principle owners of the Florida franchises are NYers...

    I think I would stop reading PSD message boards.

    In fact, after reading this, I may quit anyway.
