“To be blunt honest with you, I don’t think they really care.” was the reply Howard Johnson gave when asked by WFAN’s Steve Somers in so many words how many of these Mets who Howard Johnson deals with or talks to in Spring Training appreciate or know their history and that Johnson is 3rd on the Mets all time list for homers and rbi’sÂ and 2nd with the doubles?
Johnson a class act always went on to further say that what he likes to be known as is a guy who they trust and a guy who can help them. To which Somers replied “…they should know about you Howard”.
It is a great interview that touches on Wright & Murphy’s struggles in 2009 what his visions is for Murphy in the future, Wright’s added muscles, concerns about Reyes swinging for the fences if he bats 3rd and his son’s impersonation of Somers.
