Once upon a time, in a land where Oreo Cookies grow on trees, and it always rained Skittles upon the land, the Mets acquired uber-prospect Domonic Brown from the Phillies from whence the Hershey River flowed. In return for their wonderful haul, the Mets happily exchanged their 34-year old right fielder with two bad knees, who adoring fans lovingly […]
