Your Olympic Hero Gets Traded Again

Having missed out on Carlos Delgado, the Mets have reportedly traded a minor leaguer to the Red Sox for Doug Mientkiewicz, the former U.S. Olympic and Twins first baseman who famously caught the last out of the 2004 World Series, and then kept the ball. The question is, does he bring The Ball with him to the Mets? First Pedro, now the Ball- Minaya’s stealing all of Boston’s most valuable assets.

Meanwhile, Anna Benson now moves to a distant third in the Hottest Mets Wife queue, behind Piazza’s new bride Alicia Rickter, and Jodi Mientkiewicz.

UPDATE: Doug, apparently, has agreed to give back the ball.
