Last Thursday I spent 4 innings with the Binghamton Mets on their way to a 16-2 loss in the pouring rain. All of that kinda sucked - it was 1030 AM - the beer wasn't very cold and it wasn't Yuengling - the Hatfield deli was not open, so no pulled pork breakfast - the lines for hot dogs were about 40 kids long each - all in all not a good morning to be a 28 year old dude alone at a minor league baseball game.
But I was able to get a few cards signed (cards courtesy of Paul's Random Stuff). Paul will be getting his own copy of each of these cards plus Shawn Bowman who I lost the 2nd card of, so I only had him sign the one for Paul -
Here they are in the order received
First up was Josh Thole - he remembered be from the bowling day and again, was a real pleasure - got to talk to him for a few minutes about getting a day off and Brad Holt - He signed for everybody and really is the nicest guy I can remember on one of these B Mets teams - Murphy and Carp were always nice, but you can tell that with Thole he really enjoys all of everything
Next up is Stephen Clyne who pitched poorly and wasn't nice, wasn't mean - just kinda grunted and moved on - but he was still nice enough to sign
Finally Roydrick Merrit - This dude didn't even grunt... but still - nice enough to sign.
I will be getting more players as the opportunity presents itself. Thanks again for the cards Paul!
