Batting seventh for the New York Mets tonight: Marlon Anderson. Batting eighth for the New York Mets tonight: Ramon Castro. A side-by-side comparison going into the game:
Anderson - .205/.242/.286 with one home run in 112 at-bats
Castro - .289/.359/.494 with four home runs in 83 at-bats
Does that make any kind of sense? I thought we left this type of silliness behind when the Mets fired their manager last month.
