The New York Times ran an article today by Michael Schmidt entitled "A Player Known for His Politics, Too" which featured quotes from the incomparable Gary Cohen, the loathsome Chris "Mad Dog" Russo, and me. Try to spot the outlier in this group. It's basically a reaction piece to the Mets' acquisition of Carlos Delgado.
Eric Simon, who runs the fan Web site Metsgeek.com, said reaction among the site's users had been mixed.Pretty neat.
"A lot of people are excited; they know what type of player he is," Simon said. "Fans that follow the youngsters are sad to see those players go; they could be great players down the road. But most people think it's an enormous upgrade in the short term."
