Ask Petey Part One: Mets 2012 Draft, Wheeler & Flores Timetable?
Petey: What the hell?
Tommy Gun: You sit tight and we’ll be back to finish up with you later, Petey. Too bad your going to miss Santana tonite.
Petey: Are you completely out of your mind?
Tommy Gun: Metsie put our friend’s “hat” on for him, Bayonne check his ropes. Make sure they are nice and snug.
And with that the lights went out again, and just when I was able to get my eyes open a little bit too, I didn’t even get a look at any of these shifty characters.
Metsie: What if he makes noise? Someone might hear him.
Tommy Gun: He’s right. Hey Alex, make our friend go nighty-nite.
A minute later I felt a sting on my arm and a burn, and everything went black.
Will Petey make it through his ordeal alive?
Or will he be used by radical Mets fans and then left to sleep with the fishes?
Check back on MMO tomorrow to find out!
About the Author: Peter Shapiro
The first time I went to Shea was not for a Mets game, it was for the Beatles concert there in August of '66. My first Met game was '67, a guy named Salty Parker was the interim-manager then. My first pennant race was 1969. As a 12 year-old that summer and fall, I managed to get to the park for 3 games. The first was the beginning of the Miracle which actually started on Tuesday July 8, 1969 with a day game against the Cubs. I was there a lot in '73. I saw games 3 & 5 of the 1973 NL Playoffs against the "Big Red Machine", from the upper deck behind home plate. It was from there that I witnessed the fight between Bud Harrelson and Pete Rose, and the mayhem that ensued. And that sweet victory in game 5! I saw a couple of WS games at Shea that year against that legendary Oakland A's club. I was there in 1985 for every single game Dr. K pitched including his two 16 strikeout performances, and the day he one-hit the Cubs on an infield single and the Mets won 1-0. I loved being a Met fan in those days. Hopefully we are once again preparing to emerge from the darkness.
