Last night I had the honor to participate in a group interview with Mets pitcher, R.A. Dickey. He was extremly cool and answered all of our questions.
I at the moment am having a problem getting my video feed of the 15 minute interview up, but I will try to have it ready to go by tomorrow. So here is a clip compliments of Mets Police.
And with that said…. HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!
Mets alumni celebrating a birthday today include :
Utility infielder from the ’62 and ’63 season, Cliff Cook is 75 (1936).
Reserve outfielder from the ’09 season, Cory Sullivan is 32 (1979).
The man known more for his mug shot than his pitching exploits, reliever from the ’09 season, Lance Broadway is 28 (1983).
The New York Mets purchased the contract of middle reliever, Bill Connors from the Chicago Cubs on August 20, 1967.
The New York Mets purchased the contract of pitcher, Ray Burris from the New York Yankees on August 20, 1979. Burris was a very good pitcher at one point in his career, but by the time he came to the Mets he was past his prime. In 2 seasons with the Mets he went 7-15 a 3.94 E.R.A.
The New York Mets signed free agent one time slick fielding infielder, Larry Bowa on August 20, 1985. He was used in a reserve role for the remainder of the season, He retired once the season ended.
The New York Mets traded minor league infielders, Sean Henry and Jose Castro to the Cincinnati Reds for past his prime outfielder, Jeff Conine on August 20, 2007.
The New York Mets released pitcher, Livan Hernandez on August 20, 2009. Livan claims it was because they didn’t want an money laden option to kick – and the Mets front office never disputed it.
Mo Vaughn was seen wearing only a speedo and doing belly flops on the Citi Field tarp during last nights rain delay !
