The Mets continue to invite new faces to camp. Switch-hitting skyscraper Tony Clark is the most intriguing. Clark is coming off a rotten year in Boston (wearing No. 22) but isn’t too far removed from some good seasons with Detroit (when he wore No. 17). He’d make a nice backup for Mo Vaughn and a dangerous pinch-hitter if he catches on. Feb 23 Update: According to Mets.com (not known for its accuracy) Clark has been assigned No. 00. If that holds, it would be the first double-zero in Met history.Photo courtesy of Ed Tsunoda and Metswiki. More Updates: Esix Snead in No. 1; longshot vet Jay Bell in 44 (Prentice Redman in 82); and Graeme Lloyd in 17. The Mets also announced they’ve invited Donovan “Sunshine Superman” Osbourne to camp and issued him No. 88.
