It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

The Ballad of Mark Johnson

Mark Johnson was born on Tuesday, October 17, 1967, in Worcester, Massachusetts...

Born to be a Met, some say, is the reason.
But no one remembers his .182/333/.318 season.

All of those Joneses, Derrick Bell's operation shutdown, the one at bat of Ryan McGuire.
These historical images all light a fire.

Poor Mark now forgotten like the flavor of Mullagatawny.
His spot in our memories taken by Benny Agbayani.
