Who YOU Callin' Big Pussy?

The Coop has officially taken Carlos Beltran off the Big Pussy Posse list. Not sure who is taking his place, but I'll tell you what. Beltran has about the quote of the year -- and the regular season hasn't even started yet! -- from an interview with Kevin Bukhardt (Hat tip to the boys at Metsblog for this one).

"So, this year, tell Jimmy Rollins we are the team to beat." - Carlos Beltran

OK...who are you and what have you done with Carlos Beltran??? Has he been possessed by the balls of Jimmy Rollins?

I mean, we have to admit, that is a BOLD statement, especially coming from Carlos Beltran, who in all respects is very quiet, subdued...until, you know, he comes out and starts describing in percentages how his health is.

The difference between Jimmy Rollins' statement in 2007 and Beltran's statement now is...of course, 2007 is in the past now, and Rollins backed his shit up with an MVP year and got his team into the playoffs. Beltran now has to do his part.

But hey if that means Mets baseball in October AND an MVP year for Beltran, I'm not gonna complain.

So he may be off the Big Pussy roster...but I still have permission to make fun of him when he pulls a "I'm-not-well-enough-to-play" bitch stunt.
