You may have seen Bobby Valentine do a spirited performance of “Meet the Mets recently. I’m not sure but that may have inspired this guy who played the woodwinds and brass in a zoom show.
Next thing I know my musician friend Kenny “tags” me in a #MeetTheMetsChallenge only this one has a COVID-19 charity associated. So while we suffer through a baseballess baseball season and with the world needing a lot more support for treatment and a cure than it’s getting, I got some help from my wife and son and performed the Subterranean Homesick Blues inspired version below and made a donation of Relief International, which isn’t just Satoru Komiyama’s job description but a charity. Consider yourself challenged!
The Mets today called up pitchers Tyler Walker, Satoru Komiyama and Pedro Feliciano,outfielder Esix Snead and catcher Jason Phillips; and recalled utilityman Marco Scutaro on Sunday. Walker (46), Komiyama (17) and Scutaro (26) will retain the digits they wore in previous visits. Phillips takes No. 7 — he was 26 last year. Snead was issued No. 23, which doesn’t bode well for the return of McKay Christensen; and Feliciano gets 55, making theShawn Estes deal a Uni-Swap. Ty Wigginton 9 is also back
Unfamiliar with garage doors in his new country, Satoru Komiyama’s carport accident sent No. 17 to the 15-day disabled list. The Mets called up Tyler Yates from Norfolk, issued himNo. 32, but he never appeared in a game before being sent down Wednesday for the now-rested Pete Walker. Walker will wear No. 43.
The Mets signed Japanese League veteran righthander Satoru Komiyama, late of the Yokohama BayStars and Bobby Valentine’s former Chiba Lotte team. After some dogged Internet research, we’ve determined that Komiyama favors No. 27, most recently worn by Mark Corey. In other news, the Mets have re-upped No. 47, Super Joe McEwing, and picked up the option on No. 5, Tsuyoshi Shinjo.
