We just received a phone call from our guy that Chris Young is coming to the NY Metropolitans. Chris, who went to Princeton, told our guy’s buddy – who went to Princeton with him – that he is indeed joining the National League Club in Flushing, NY. He is 6 feet 10 inches (2.08 m), which makes him, along with former pitchers Eric Hillman and Randy Johnson and current pitcher Andrew Sisco of the New York Yankees organization, the second tallest player in baseball history, next to free agent relief pitcher Jon Rauch (6 feet 11 inches (2.11 m)). With the 6’7″ Mike Pelfrey and the 6’4″ Jonathan Neise, the Mets now have a decent backcourt, if not a decent starting rotation! You heard it here first!
