I didn’t write about the Hudson signing, because reading about it rendered me unconscious in shock of the Twins actually addressing one of their major holes. Damn. The Twins did something.
Today, in a surprise move, we learned that Jason Pridie had been placed on waivers to make space, and in a bigger surprise, he had been claimed by the Mets.
Pridie has been, to put it mildly, useless in his two major league call-ups. Both times he failed to hit and both times he made an error that almost single-handedly lost a game. I can’t fault him too badly, as that sort of thing usually happens during a call-up, but still. He didn’t exactly impress. Still, I wish him luck as a Metropolitan, where he will most likely end up the starting CF, what with the massive proficiency of the Mets doctors.
Hope he can get some private health insurance, what with the skyrocketing rates and all, but I wouldn’t bet on it. He now has a pre-existing condition: signing a contract with the Mets.
