Endy!

According to one high-ranking team insider, the Mets are open to a second stint in Flushing for the free agent outfielder, and have discussed Chavez — albeit in a very informal and preliminary way — with agent Peter Greenberg.

I’m 85% sure this isn’t a real story as much as it is the reporting of a possible story — e.g., “high-ranking team insider,” “Mets are open to,” and “have discussed Chavez — albeit in a very informal and preliminary way” all appear in one sentence. Regardless: Endy Chavez! I have no interest in thinking about this in any way other than an emotional one. I much prefer replaying catches and game-winning drag bunts in my head instead of looking up Chavez’s UZR in this case.

Also, has anyone else realized that David Wright is now the only player from the 2006 postseason roster Mets still with the team today? And Mike Pelfrey and Wright are the only two holdovers to the present who saw any playing time in 2006? Five years.

  2. My mom wants to marry Endy, and all I have to do is kill my dad.…
