White Sox Are Hogging Up All Our Gritty Former Mets
Ha ha ha I couldn’t resist.
This from Doug Padilla at ESPNChicago.com:.
The White Sox will name Mark Parent and Joe McEwing to the coaching staff of new manager Robin Ventura, a source indicated Monday.
McEwing has spent the last four seasons with the White Sox, managing Triple-A Charlotte this past season. Known as a people person, McEwing also can be stern when he needs to be while still maintaining the respect of those around him. McEwing, though, is mostly known for his infectious energy which earned him the nickname “Super Joe.” He played nine seasons in the major leagues, his last a short stint with the Houston Astros in 2006. He also played for the Cardinals, Mets and Royals.
So who will they swipe next Wally Backman, the grittiest Met of them all?
Check that I forgot about Jeff Francoeur.
