MOMA TOLD ME NOT TO COME As I was reading the account of yesterday's Mets Orioles game I started to feel a bit light headed. In the game story, Kris Benson pitched against The Zambrano Project with the Zambrano Project out pitching Benson for 5 innings. In the stands was Anna Benson and Bill Parcells (now there's a wet T-shirt contest eh?) then to top it off Rickey Henderson is camp as an instructor (Boys, never hit on 15 or more. Put the pressure on the dealer) I felt like I just polished off a bottle of Wild Irish Rose and a chaluppa at 2 AM. IS JESUS OUR SAVIOR? Omar has a 16 year old Venezuelan kid named Jesus Montero in camp to show him what life is like with the Mets. It seems young Jesus can not sign until July and leave it to Omar to get the jump on everyone else. The kid must have some skills as it looks it will take well over a million bucks to get him signed. http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/mets/story/401847p-340412c.html

AU REVIOR TUFFY RHODES

Tuffy Rhodes announced his retirement from baseball. Who is Tuffy Rhodes? Why he only nailed Dwight Gooden for THREE HOME RUNS on opening day 1994 in Wrigley Field.

Rhodes didn't do much more in the ML but he did make his mark in Japan where he hit a Japanese record 55 HR's in a season.
