[Mets GM] Sandy Alderson announced the signing of a pair of spring training consultants for the Mets: George Will and Keith Olbermann.
… As for Olbermann, he’s been hired to fire up the LEFTIES, both the pitchers and hitters.
Alderson explained: “As soon as we heard that Keith was placed on waivers for the purpose of his unconditional release by MSNBC we decided he was someone to look into. And with our financial situation we were buoyed by the thought that NBC News would be paying like 99% of his contract. We just have to pay the major league minimum for part-time spring training help.”
Don’t be surprised to see the Mets’ lefthanded pitchers be more agressive “on the inside corner” against opposing righties.
