Congratulations to Alex Torres, who yesterday became the first Major League pitcher to earn a save wearing Rick Moranis’ helmet from Spaceballs. It’s a slightly updated version of the look Torres pioneered last year. He also becomes the second Met to look ridiculous in the name of safety. But it probably doesn’t matter if you can throw at ludicrous speed.
I know what you’re thinking– toolbox. But I’m going to take the road less traveled: I commend Torres for putting safety first, and I think the Phillies should force Cole Hamels to wear one. In fact, I think the Phils should cover Hamels in bubble wrap and store him somewhere in the bowels of Citizens Bank Park in a temperature controlled room like he’s a fine wine until either A) Ruben Amaro finds a willing trade partner, or B) Amaro gets fired and his replacement does what Amaro should’ve done a year ago. Yeah, I know, it might mess with Cole’s resurgent luscious locks, but we can’t take chances at this point . Ruben Amaro is actively sabotaging our franchise, so the least we can do is demand that valuable assets take the utmost precautions until someone grows a set and fires the GM.
