Where’s Jerry Koosman AND Ed Kranepool?
That’s the cover of this year’s Mets Media Guide. I was taking a look at it this morning and thought I spotted a curious omission. Before you read any further, take a look and see if you can spot it too…
Here is who is featured on the cover starting at the top and going left to right:
1. Tom Seaver
2. R.A. Dickey
3. Jon Matlack
4. Mike Piazza
5. John Stearns
7. Jose Reyes (Nice coincidence!)
8. Gary Carter (An even better coincidence!)
10. Keith Hernandez
11. Dwight Gooden
12. Johan Santana
13. Terry Collins
14. David Wright
Now here’s my question…
Where’s Jerry Koosman?
Let’s leave this to players only for the sake of this argument, but wouldn’t you think Koosman rates over Stearns? (No offense to the Dude.)
If you’re going to include Matlack, shouldn’t you include Kooz too?
Update: Nice catch by our reader Matt, who also spotted another huge omission, Ed Kranepool…
Wow, I can’t believe I missed that one…
