Goodbye Gary

I know I’ve been running behind schedule but I didn’t think I’d miss the entire Gary Sanchez Era. The Mets solved the problem of too many catchers today and designated the former Yankee for assignment. We’ve got to stop giving catchers No. 33, it did so little for James McCann.

Tomas Nido is back but he’s not about to be the starter any longer now that Francisco Alvarez has settled in. He’s pretty good. Brett Baty isn’t bad either though he may be having his first Big League slump. Mark Vientos? His swing looks long to me and I’m afraid he’s going to strike out too much. I’m a little scared to pull the plug on Tommy Pham yet.

I was in the stadium when Josh Walker made his first and still only appearance as a Met. He became the first 91 since Carlos Gomez broke it in in his brief return to the Mets in 2019.

    “The entire Gary Sanchez era.” ROFLMAO!

    Maybe it’s just me, but when Narvaez returns, he and Alvarez will be a good catching tandem, perhaps on par with Murphy and d’Arnaud in Atlanta.

    Just FYI, you still have Drew Smith in #62.

    Grant Hartwig is the first Mets player to wear #93.
