Mets Do the Wright Thing

Friend asked me the other day, name any Met player who started and ended his career with the team.

“Ed Kranepool,” I said.

“That’s all I could come up with, too,” he said.

I’m sure there are others but not many, not ones with long careers. Which is one reason why the Mets ¬†showed David Wright the money.

I was going to say Cleon Jones, but I just checked and he played 12 games with the ChiSox to end his career!

Good for the Mets.

[2] Agreed. I really like watching Wright play, too. He's an excellent ballplayer. I think he somehow is underrated because he never started hitting 40 homers a year, but he's one of those guys who just does things well. He had a terrific 2012.
