And now for the entry you all new would be coming (Cyn’s Edit:Â Yes, it actually came earlier but I pulled the entry for various reasons.Â Problem is, I liked the piece, LOVE the photo and now have official verification that Kyle has, indeed, signed with the Mets, so here it is again – edited with up to date info!):
For those of you who have been emailing me wondering what Kyle Snyder’s status was, I finally have some news!
MLB STILL has him listed as a non-roster invitee with no team attached to his profile but their “Game Notes” entry today has verified that the reason there was a Kyle Snyder sighting in Port Saint Lucie last week is because he signed a minor league contract with the team.Â This is fabulous news and finding out it’s true makes me extremely happy.Â Here’s hoping Kyle has a good, INJURY-FREE season with the Mets and Bisons.
It also gives me a reason to wear the Snyder Mets jersey I got off of eBay last week. (Hey, I couldn’t help it. Good price, Kyle’s name on it and the Citifield inaugural season patch on it. Plus it’s black, in my opinion, the best color ever for baseball jerseys!)
So, yes, that means I now proudly own 3 Kyle Snyder jerseys (two Red Sox jerseys: batting practice and road grey and one Mets) and I’ll fight you if you give me crap about it (ask the spelling-challenged dude in Baltimore who wanted to know why I was wearing a Duke Snider Red Sox jersey).
The Bisons play the PawSox at McCoy April 23-26…sounds like as good a time as any for my first trip of the season to Pawtucket.
(Is it bad form to wish various maladies on the Mets starting pitchers to help increase the chances of Kyle’s being put on the 40-man roster and finding his way to Citifield at some point?Â Just asking.)
