Hark! The Gerald Angels Sing

Good one about the Mets recalling Gerald Williams. You're funny. I almost believed it, too. I particularly admire the way you somehow engineered it so the entire New York sporting media would go along with the joke. I saw this news everywhere. Whad'dya do, get inside my hard drive or something? Well, whatever. Hats off to you. I got a big kick out of it. But I know it's not true because these are The New Mets and they wouldn't dare recall Gerald Williams and set us back one season and like a thousand light years.

    Wasn't there some controversy with Williams? I recall he was cryogenically frozen and his head was kept separate from his body. I think his son fought with his daughter. Fuzzy on the details, but it was kind of ugly. That said, I don't see how the guy helps us.

    When Gerald Williams walks down the street, people say “there's goes the deadest hitter who ever lived.”

    It's Diaz whose head was separated from his body. The jury's still out on this experiment, though cutoff men continue to grumble that it's going badly.
