He shouldn't be allowed to write about the Yankees anymore after promoting the Mets for decades.
Were you expecting a recap of Shane Spencer's career? Well, you got one:
"There was a time in the 1990s ... "
" ... when Shane Spencer showed up at the old
Stadium in September '98, joining one of the greatest Yankees teams of
them all, and proceeded to hit eight homers in 14 games, including three
grand slams. A shooting September star if there ever was one, with an
OPS of his own over 1.000. Spencer hit a home run his first time up in
the playoffs against the Texas Rangers before fading ..."
Well, he hit another HR in the very next game against Texas, so ...
" ... and eventually
playing out his career in places that were not New York City."
I guess the Mets are not New York City.
