THE DUKE GOES DUMPSTER DIVING Ricky Bottalico and James Baldwin were offered contracts today by the Mets. It's too bad ol' Pete Gray, the one-armed outfielder is no longer with us, because he would probalbly get a minor league deal and be thrown in the RF mix. Don't we already have Bottalico's evil twin pitching for us in David Weathers? Whoever thought the we could sign Scott Erickson AND James Baldwin? YA HOO!! I am starting to rethink some of the "young arms" in the Mets system. Jason Anderson, Grant Roberts, Dan Wheeler, Royce Ring, Jeremy Griffiths, Tyler Yates, and so on and so forth. If they can't beat out a couple of broken down plow horses like Bottalico and Baldwin, we are in for another lllllooooooong season. < |
