WHY? BECAUSE I'M BRET BOONE, DAMNIT!! You would think I guy who hasben labled as "finished" like Bret Boone would be waiting for the spring training gates to open and show Wilie Randolph that he is "stil the man" but Boone is no where near Port St. Lonesome and it has the Mets wondering why?: {Of the four players with a shot at the second base job, only Jeff Keppinger was in town early, joining the club Wednesday. Kaz Matsui, the incumbent but by no means a sure thing, flew into town Sunday and is expected in camp today. Still absent are Bret Boone and Anderson Hernandez. Hernandez played winter ball, but some eyeballs were raised that Boone was not an early arrival after being traded out of Seattle and released by Minnesota.} And now Kaz Matsui has arrived to show us he won't take the stealing of his job lightly. < |
