Happy Halloween to all my favorite gargoyles & ghouls out there. This year I figured I'd go as something scary for Halloween so I figured I'd go as Jeff Wilpon & Omar Minaya's love child he looks just like his mother Okay I know That's frightening so - On WITH THE INFAMY !!!!Happy Birthday to a truly scary pitcher -Steve " Trash " Trachsel (1970) Steve's pitching style would lull you to sleep and then cause panic inducing nightmares ( see the '06 playoffs).New York Mets traded Richie " Grave Digger" Hebner to the Detroit Tigers for outfielder Jerry " Ay Dios Mio" Morales and infielder Phil " The Mank Man" Mankowski on October 31, 1979. Hebner always stated that he did't want to play for the Mets, When he was on the field he proved that, So the mets traded him on the scariest day of the year ( aside from April 15th) So I guess Joe MacDonald did some good things in his tenure as the G.M.New York Mets released Ron" The Mad Butcher" Hodges on October 31, 1984.Michael " Cheif Nokahoma's best friend" was Tucker granted free agency on October 31, 2006.Pedro " Putrid Petey!" Martinez granted free agency on October 31, 2008. I still feel it was the right move to bring him back, if we did he would of been by April the charter member of this years disabled list.And Remember there are only 156 very scary days until the Mets open the 2010 season against Florida at Citi FieldHAPPY HALLOWEEN !!!
