Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

Oh, they're hollerin' and cheerin' and they're jumpin' in their seats

Many thanks to Lisa and Ted – both were the first to let me know (I received both of their messages at exactly the same time) about Kyle Snyder signing a minor-league deal with the New York Mets! (Note that the story I linked has incorrect info. Kyle actually made the World Series roster in 2007.)

I’m just so happy for Kyle! And I couldn’t be happier about his being with the Mets. If I had to pick a team that wasn’t the Red Sox for Kyle to pitch for, it would be the Mets. They’re close to home (well, close to MY home) and they aren’t the Yankees. I’m thrilled, absolutely thrilled for him.

For those of you new to my blog, Kyle is, without a doubt, my favorite player. Chances are there will be at least one post a week about him, especially once the regular season begins. My fondness for Kyle is unwavering and I make no apologies for using my blog to help promote the guy!

Kyle has an invite to spring training where he’ll be fighting for a spot on the big team. My hope is the worst case scenario will turn out to be he ends up playing for the Buffalo Bisons (who just so happen to be playing in Pawtucket in May, July and August this season). Mets or Bisons, either way I’m happy for him. He really deserves this shot. But, really, how great would it be to see him up with the Mets? The Mets are coming to Boston in May. If Kyle is with the team then, I know roughly 25 people who are getting together that weekend who just might storm Fenway in an attempt to see him. Kyle Snyder has a bit of a posse here in Boston! (Sidenote to my fellow Megapaloozaers – WOOOOOOOO!)

If you’re so inclined, send some positive vibes Kyle’s way, would you?

Congratulations, Kyle. Go show them what you can do!
