I knew they were talking but it was great to hear BMF’s buddy Jim Malone was hired as the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator for the NY Mets.
Malone was actually with the Mets in ‘02 as their strength coach but got swept out when Valentine regime came crashing down. In addition to working with the Royals and Indians Malone spent the last 7 seasons in San Diego.
With a football background before baseball Jim is a great addition to the Mets and I hope he catches a break and the Mets don’t suffer through another bizarre rash of injuries like they seem to every year.
Good Luck Malone - you’re gonna need it.
It may be nothing but there was a whisper that the Wilpons are broke, unable to sign anyone this off-season and may in fact lose the team in 2 years after-all.
I try not to get too excited at the thought of the Wilponzis having to sell but if it’s still a possibility I will take comfort in that chance no matter how slim it may be.
But considering Mets fan expectations were lowered by the front office leaking that we’re not spending any money this winter, maybe just maybe it is true.
