Life advice from Razor Shines

Mets' third base coach Razor Shines may be indiscriminate when it comes to sending runners, but that has not stopped him from offering his opinion on, well, everything.

Squawker Lisa has alerted me to a promo for Aquafina bottled water in which an interactive Shines answers your yes-or-no questions as the "3rd Base Coach of Life."

So I decided to ask a few questions of one of the few people in a Met uniform who is still standing:

DO YOU AUTOMATICALLY WAVE EVERY RUNNER HOME?
Absolutely. It's outta here!

WILL ANY OF THE MET CORE MAKE IT BACK THIS YEAR?
Let me consult my muse. (drinks some Aquafina) That's unlikely.

ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED THAT THE METS SPENT LESS MONEY THAN EVERY OTHER TEAM ON DRAFT PICKS?
Looks like your hitting slump will continue.

IS RYAN CHURCH DIFFERENT FROM DAVID WRIGHT?
No, quit chasing bad pitches.

HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO WAVE A RUNNER HOME EVEN WHEN NO ONE WAS ON BASE?
Relax, just play catch out there.

I have to ask, who's advice is more obscure and "out there", Razor or Yogi Berra? At least Razor is funny in an oddball way, Yogi is just plain dumb and annoying.
