Who’d have ever imagined Bobby Bonilla would have a 2nd tour of duty with the New York Mets? If that particular pig could fly, why not bring back the just-waived Kenny Rogers to take John Maine’s spot in the starting rotation?
Consider all the positives : he’s experienced postgame pressure (ball four!), knows how to handle the media (see above) and given his prior experience at Shea Stadium, already knows the quickest way to escape the clubhouse after a loss. He’s exactly the sort of strong veteran presence someone like Jon Niese can learn from. That is, if Niese isn’t traded to obtain Kenny Rogers.
