Anthony Recker Sends the Mets A Message

 “I’ve never done this before! I’ve never been congratulated! Slap hands? Slap hands!” 

Anthony Recker (him?) hit two dingers or some shit like that in Vegas and was named the Pacific Coast League Player of the Week. Metsblog and others reported on this, saying that Recker was, “sending the Mets a message.”

Indeed! A message! And the message is: The pacific coast league is rec league intramurals. Pacific Coast League, featuring such teams as the Vegas 51s and the Stanky Doodoo Farts.* 

Thank you, Anthony, for showing once again that our AAA team is the worst measuring stick of talent in baseball history. 

*The Stanky Doodoo Farts, the rec league softball team that I am the player/coach for, would take Anthony Recker. We don’t want him. We don’t need him. But we wanna win, so we’d take him. Barely. 

Mets Activate Johnny Monell But Don’t Send Recker Down

Handsome Anthony Recker dodged the guillotine once again. The Mets are bringing up catcher Johnny Monell, but will keep Recker and carry three catchers.

By the way, the Mets didn’t announce who they are sending down. This is likely due to Recker glamouring Collins and Alderson, leaving them flat-footed in their decision. Perhaps he glamoured the commish into allowing htem a 26-man roster.

How else can you explain the Mets keeping Recker up? I want you all to know that he has 1 hit this season. 1!!! And it wasn’t a hit. It wasn’t. Watch the replay. It was an error. I don’t care what the official scorekeeper said. It was an error. He has zero hits.

You could basically send any position player down (save for Lagares and Duda) and I wouldn’t blink.
