Everything you hear about Charlie Samuels from players, both ex and current, is that he was a great guy. A real friend and mentor to generations of players who came through the organization. A friend who would help a player in any way he can including allowing them to stay at his home if needed.
But it turns out good old Charlie has been betting with the mob, betting on baseball no less, feeding them information, skimming money on team hotel deals, and liquidating Met equipment to memorabilia dealers.
Now that word is out so is Charlie and as a Met fan BMF is happy to see it. I’m sure he’s a great guy and all but now that the Mets are in reorganization mode I’d like to see the franchise fumigated from top to bottom.
So if there are any other clubhouse guys, groundskeepers, hot dog vendors or shake shack employees with Mob connections and/or selling steroids can we please root them out now.
Because the Mets seem to lead the sports world with the most crooked employees that end up being outed on national news.
