Good Morning to all my fellow apathetic Mets brethren out there. First off let me say yesterdays game would of been a soul crushing experience if this team was still a viable contender for the pennant, First off Ollie ” The Grim Reaper ” Perez pitched fugly (he made Pete Falcone look like a ace!) And to end the game on a triple play in the middle of a rally is straight out of the ’62 teams playbook. This paired with the Fred Wilpons obstinate decree of “Omar isn’t going anywhere!” will spell certain doom for this franchise for the near future ( don’t mean to be bleak).
Anyway it is time for the early Monday installment of “This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty”,
Happy birthday to the Mets third string catcher for the late ’70′s – early ’80′s campaign – that’s right folks it’s the little heard of Butch ” Barbi” Benton (1957)
Up next is the lesser known cog of the Scott Kazmir for Victor Zambrano deal . That’s right Happy Birthday Bartolome Fortunato (1974)
On this day in 2006 New York Mets resigned veteran free agent catcher Kelly Stinnett .
P.S lets hope Bobby Parnell can show us something against Cliff Lee and the Philths today
