In a span of 24 hours, the Mets have picked up two guys with phenomenal names.
1. JJ Putz
-acquired via trade last night
2. Rocky Cherry
-acquired via rule V draft today
Seriously, dude's name is Rocky Cherry. Who came up with that name? Is it a nickname? Either way, it's an absolutely fantastic name. I'm amazed that a human being could have such an amazingly unique, yet puzzling name.
I can see it now, the NY Post headline after Cherry blows his first big game as a Met:
Too bad the Mets did not trade for Coco Crisp...you know how awesome the "J.J. Putz-Rocky Cherry-Coco Crisp" combination could have been!
Gonna be a fun season, Met fans.
