I guess you could say with all the Metcentric events that happened today – the good news out weighed the bad by and ounce. The good news is according to S.I’s resident Millhouse look a like John Heyman reported that Jose Reyes ran 90 feet – full speed – and felt no pain. The other news that Heyman reported was that low risk, high reward pitcher – Kelvim Escobar was pronounced healthy by team Dr. , David Altcheck. He will be ready for Pitchers and catchers in 12 days. Okay and now the bad news. Well we already know about the clusterphuck bomb that was dropped today – You know J.J. Putz and the case of the organization that couldn’t diagnose hay fever let alone bone spurs. And now Espn writer ( and Phillies shill), Buster Onley tweeted that as of this point in time, the Mets are finished signing players and this will be the current Mets roster going into Spring Training. Thank goodness Mike ” The Gut” Francesa was too preoccupied at ripping Rex Ryan flipping the one finger salute to some inbred that he didn’t cover either of these stories. Unfortunately I put on Michael Kay’s program and there he was , in all smugness tearing the Mets brass a new one and trying to convert young Mets fans to the dark-side. To quote Benigno – OHHH THE PAIN !!! All I have to say is Omar better be praying to Jobu that this team doesn’t fall off the cliff early, because like Steve Phillips , I can’t see any other organization taking a chance on him in any role other than an international scout.

And with that said … HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!
Happy Birthday Wishes go out to one time prospect who pitched in three games to an E.R.A OF 13.50 for the Mets during that ill fated ’92 campaign -Joe Vitko (1970) .
Reserve outfielder from ’98 Rich Becker, is 38 (1972) .
New York Mets claimed Endy ” The Catch” Chavez on waivers from the Detroit Tigers on February 1, 2002.Believe it or not that was Endy’s second go round with the Mets ( he wouldn’t make the team until ”06). I miss his all out speed and his penchant for getting clutch hits , but alas all good things must come to an end.
Oakland Athletics signed utility infielder, Ricky Ledee of the New York Mets as a free agent on February 1, 2007.
Kansas City Royalssigned pitcher, Brian Lawrence of the New York Mets as a free agent on February 1, 2008
And don’t forget while you are crying that you got crappy numbers in your Super Bowl box, Just remember – there are just 63 more days until the Mets open the 2010 season against the Florida Marlins at Citi Field.
