I'm going to use this quote when I get fired (downsized?)

    Pitching coach Rick Peterson:

    "(The Mets) welcomed me into their home, and homes go through renovations. I’m the hardwood floor that’s getting ripped out and they’re going to replace it with Tuscany tile. This is a team that’s underachieved, and it will get back on track. I walk out in peace.”

    You should have heard the rest of his "I believe in Eastern philosophy" speech and his explanation of the bracelet he wears.
    I'm still waiting for a translation.
    No wonder Ollie Perez never understood a word he said.

    It's not fucking philosophy Rick...it's pitching!

    Except when newspapers downsize they won't replace the floor and will stick with the plain concrete or plywood.

    Did he say anything about garters and breathing through eyelids?

    You don't replace a floor that's fallen out from underneath you.
