This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: The Separated At Birth Edition
It is funny how sometimes we look like famous people. I for example have been told that I look like a bloated Danny Partridge or a late in his career Rusty Staub (hence my nickname Rustyjr). But it is amazing when some of our favorite current Mets players and coaches look like other famous people.
So here I am happy to revive an old feature I used to do at another blog called …….
METS PLAYERS SEPARATED AT BIRTH…
First off is current Mets outfielder, Marlon Byrd
And R & B legend, Jermaine Jackson
Up next is Met manager, Terry Collins
And actor turned accused murderer Robert Blake (Uncanny !)
Next up is Ace Pitcher, Matt Harvey
And “Everyone Loves Raymond” co-star, Brad Garrett.
Then there is the case of utility infielder, Justin Turner
And a Leprechaun
There is also the curious case of Josh Satin
And Bert from “Sesame Street
And lastly I present to you Mets pitching coach, Dan Warthern
And Hank Hill.
So what do you think ? Do you agree/disagree ? Is there any other Mets player that bears a striking resemblance to a celebrity that is currently living or dead ?
Please feel free to post in the comments section below.
And with that said….. HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!!!
Mets alumni celebrating a birthday today includes:
Mets third base coach from ’97-’99, Bruce Benedict is 58. Benedict also piloted for the Norfolk Tides in 1996.
Reserve outfielder from the ’85 season, Terry Blocker is 54. Blocker was the Mets first round pick from the ’81 amateur draft. His career never did pan out, and he was out of the majors by 1990 after a short stint with the Atlanta Braves.
Spot starter/middle reliever from ’09-’11, Pat Misch is 32. He is currently pitching for the Detroit Tigers’ Triple-A affiliate, the Toledo Mud Hens.
The New York Mets purchased the contract of middle reliever, Dave Eilers from the Milwaukee Braves on August 18, 1965. Eilers would spend two seasons with the Mets, compiling a record of 2-2 with an ERA of 4.44 in 34 appearances.
The New York Mets traded centerfielder Brett Butler to the Los Angeles Dodgers for minor league outfield prospects, Scott Hunter and Dwight Maness on August 18, 1995. Butler was one of the very few reasons to watch the Mets in ’95. He would later manager the Gulf Coast Mets during their ’04 season
Mo Vaughn bears a striking resemblance to the Wrestler Mo from Men On A Mission !!!!
