Newsday has a bittersweet ode to Joe McEwing today:
Alas, Super Joe struck out.
No one will question his character, his dedication, or his general likeability. He's the kind of player you wish could hit a ton because he really is a good guy. Twice at Shea he has thrown a ball to me in the crowd, and even though I'm not a kid anymore, it's still a pretty big thrill. The reality, though, is that he's a lousy hitter, and his days with the Mets are numbered.
