FORMER MET ED HEARN TO BE HONORED BEFORE TONIGHTS METS-PHILLIES GAME

Former Mets catcher Ed Hearn, a member of the 1986 World Championship Mets, will be honored this evening before the Mets-Phillies game at Citi Field for his work as an ambassador for kidney disease with the Neph Cure Foundation. Check out Hern’s story:

Ed Hearn, a member of the 1986 World Champion New York Mets, will

          be honored at Citi Field on Friday, Sept. 10, for his work as Ambassador for The

           NephCure Foundation. Hearn has undergone three kidney transplants in a

           continuing battle with the kidney disease FSGS, for which there is no effective

           treatment and no cure. Hearn, who backed up Gary Carter as catcher on that

            memorable team, and was later traded to the Kansas City Royals in the David

            Cone deal, has endured dramatic health complications since retiring from

            baseball in 1991.  He is now an Ambassador for the NephCure Foundation and a

            motivational speaker who travels across the country to hospitals and dialysis

            centers to bring hope to patients facing similar challenges. Hearn is an admitted

            steroid user – but not as a player. Steroids were part of his treatment for the

            kidney malfunction caused by FSGS, which attacked his new kidneys after each

            transplant. He will be recognized Friday as part of Ed Hearn/NephCure

            Foundation Night at Citi Field, before the Mets-Phillies game, a 7:05 start

TONY B METS MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER

 

 

Gotta love Tony Bernazard the man has a way with words, especially when it come to the Mets catching situation and bringing in Pudge Rodriguez:

Some of us wished we could have him (Rodriguez) with us, but the truth is that we have two catchers under contract,” Bernazard told El Nuevo Dia. “It’s not so easy to make a move right now to make it possible to have him with us.”

This goes more to Ramon Castro than to Brain Schneider as the word is the Mets feel that Castro is an underachieving lump of shit who finds excuse after excuse to not step up when he’s needed.

The Mets look to have taken a more tough love approach this spring to see how the players in the cross hairs would react. Gimp Castillo was the first as he was shopped around more than a ‘ho on the Hunts Point stroll. He has responded so far this spring with a better work ethic and attitude. Ryan Church was next to given a shove by Warlord Jerry and he has taken it and used it to his advantage.  Duaner Sanchez was the first casualty of the tough love and was given severance pay and a well deserved kick to the curb.

Now come the catchers who if they have been paying attention realize the front office isn’t joking about making players accountable and have been told bluntly that the only reason your two sorry ass’s are here is no one else wants you and we wish we could dump you off and sign a has been, performance enhancing broken down catcher who even in that state of decline is better than you two.

Now let’s see how Shrek/Schienderhandled this diss down.
