Spring Break

50Like the Mets, I’m also flying South this weekend. Only quite a bit West too.

So updates will be infrequent while I take the fam to visit the home of Sid Fernandez, Benny Agbayani, Carlos Diaz, Tyler Yates and the birthplace of Ron Darling. If you happen to see whether my imagined Tim Teufel-Ruben Tejada duel takes place and/or can fill in any other blanks below during the first week of Spring Training, just note so in the comments. Thanks and see you soon!

    mets.com lists Bones in #25, Goodwin in #26, and Teufel in #18.

    I can understand giving #7 to a star brought in from another city, or a young shortstop coming up, or even a bench player, but a bench coach? I came to accept how the Mets never made a formal offer to Reyes and that the Marlins were just going to outspend everyone–as the Marlins are wont to do every 15 years or so–but I cannot comprehend how the first spring after he leaves you give Jose’s number to a friggin’ coach. Tell him to take 50-whatever and be damned glad he has a job.

    Well, they gave Beltran’s #15 to a Dave Kingman-esque mammoth barely a few weeks after his departure, so is this really a surprise?

    I am with you, metsilverman. Another example of the Mets getting it wrong. It is respectful to rest a star’s number for a year after they leave–especially when Reyes would have been happy staying in NY. They permanently rest #24, and #8 and #17 seem to be resting these days, too. I don’t think it is a stretch to say that Reyes is an ALL TIME MET GREAT. Seriously, Geren couldn’t be assigned a number in the 50s?
