Not only have the Mets announced that the iconic Home Run Apple will make the trip from Shea to Shining Shea for the '09 season, they have announced that they have signed former Dodger Olmedo Saenz in hopes that he will be that right-handed pop off the bench.
Now the bad news:
The Mets planned a joint announcement to take place in center field with Saenz posing next to the giant apple. Saenz, who can best be described as "pleasingly plump", thought the apple was a real apple ... and ate it.
