Roundup: Nieuwenhuis, A Bitter Cup of Coffee
Posted By Howard Megdal On April 19, 2012 @ 9:12 am In Today's Mets headlines | Comments Disabled
The Mets are off today, before beginning a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants Friday night at Citi Field.
An interesting note is that Kirk Nieuwenhuis may get the start against Barry Zito, a lefty, on Friday night. And it wouldn’t be surprising to see him leading off, even though Ruben Tejada is set to return to the lineup after getting the day off on Wednesday.
Put it this way: nothing would make the Mets happier than seeing Nieuwenhuis succeed. Any statements about limiting Nieuwenhuis are a fig leaf designed to protect him against oversized expectations.
I wanted to mention a book I had sent to me recently, and is worth your time. It’s called A Bitter Cup of Coffee, by Doug Gladstone, and it deals with a significant gap in the pension protections experienced by a number of ex-MLB players. Learn more at abittercupofcoffee.com
