Good morning my friends and fellow Mets fans. Unfortunately nothing of note or relevance happened to today in Mets infamy – the day is still young though and something is bound to happen. So I picked an obscure Met to profile .
Ed Glynn – relief pitcher
He played for the Detroit Tigers from 1975 – 1978 before being traded to the Mets.
He went on to pitch fot the Cleveland Indians 1981 – 1983; and theMontreal Expos 1985. And as we all know he was a vendor at Shea Stadium before he played professional baseball.
Traded by the Detroit Tigers to the New York Mets in exchange for Mardie Cornejo on March 13, 1979.
Traded by the New York Mets to the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Dominick Bullinger on April 6, 1981.
Purchased by the New York Mets from the Cleveland Indians on June 22, 1984.
Sold by the New York Mets to the Boston Red Sox on November 9, 1984.

Heres a couple of observations I had after last nights game . David Wright looked like he was on the verge of tears during the post game show . In my opinion he is either exhausted or even he feels this season is lost.
Ray Ramierez looks as there is a big red target on his back.
Dave Howard – Vice President of the Mets should have a big red target on his back after his lame excuse about not bringing back old timers day
Willie Randolph is smiling right now!!
I believe Jerry Manuel will resign by seasons end citing the ineptitude of the front office
Mo Vaughn is STILL fat !!!
and lets do ourselves a huge favor and not listen to Mike Francessa today – we all know he is going to be the smug arrogant bastard that we hate so much .
