Pardon me for pulling a Francesa here but I was in the car, when I heard that longtime Mets equipment man Charlie Samuels was suspended indefinitely without pay by the Mets  and to tell you the truth I was taken aback by this news.

Samuels spent 27 seasons as the Mets Clubby and from all you hear was well liked by players and front office folks. The official word is it’s a personnelmatter and the suspension has turned to a termination. If you see Ebay flooded with black Mets jersey’s you’ll know why.

Unconfirmed sources tell me Alderson was stalking around in the Mets Citi Field offices early today in full camo screaming “Com’on on out Jay Horowitz and surrender”

  1. Maybe they caught him reading your blog.

  2. I do not get it…

  3. This is admittedly weird, even for the Mets. I know we don’t know what goes on behind the scenes, but still…

  4. And the dysfuntion continues……..

    2000 2000 2000 2000 2000 2000 2000 2000 2000 2000 2000 2000

  5. Maybe it’s because he’s been rumored to be selling Mets stuff on Ebay for a long time. Game worn uniforms, Piazza’s catching equipment was there once, etc..
    It has been rumored to have been Charlie behind it all the time, but I never heard any official confirmation about this, maybe it was true and they caught him…

    Ah shit Peter I just spit coffee all over my keyboard I can hear Jeffy’s press conference now

    “We found that Charlie was using the team computers to collect information from a subversive element of our fan base, after an investigation by my Daddy and uncle uhhh Fred and Saul we found that Charlie breached his contract by disobeying the standard clause in all our player and office personel contracts that reading The Eddie Kranepool Society are grounds for immediate termination of employment”

  7. Gambling, wow,…what’s next, pitchers driving drunk and a team full of steroid users (including one who throws family members under the bus while claiming to be holier than thou), what is this world coming to?
