As I may have mentioned once or twice, I loved Joe McEwing. Many, many Mets fan hated him, as you might hate a non-productive bench guy whose hustle is the only thing he's hanging onto. But I didn't know him on the Mets. To me he was a real cool veteran guy who worked hard every day when he really didn't have to.
McEwing already has a new job. He'll be the Charlotte Knights hitting coach. So in all likelihood I'll be seeing him at McCoy. That's great!
I know this is a photo of Mientkiewicz, but the guy in the Hawaiian shirt is McEwing.
