A Word with Damion Easley

Some MetsToday readers suggested I steal credentials and scam my way into a press conference. Well, I did get into the official press room and had an exclusive interview with Damion Easley. (OK, two minutes of groveling isn’t exactly an “interview”).

Damion wanted to know why I’m hating on him so much, and told me his bat isn’t that slow. From here on he’s my favorite Met and I’ll only have glowing words for Mr. Easley.

Damion Easley with Joe Janish

Easley made me feel even worse by turning out to be an incredibly nice guy. Thanks Damion!

    Very cool pictures, Joe. Pardon me while I live vicariously through you. I think I know what I’m asking from my girlfriend this year for my birthday
