Wow, how ironic... from a Mets perspective.
It may not be that big a moment for Padres fans, but while a member of the Padres, Jody Gerut got the very first hit in the history of Citi Field... a home run, to boot.
With the acquisition of Cameron Maybin, the Padres now have the other side of the coin - as a Marlin, Maybin made the final putout in the history of Shea Stadium, catching Ryan Church's fly out to centerfield.
I wonder what itís like after death. Probíly itís like it is bífore birth. Is it nothing? Non-existence? Thatís not hard tíunderstand, but itís hard for people tíaccept. Itís hard for them to imagine not existing because all of their memories are of their existence, not non-existence. Aní people ainít too crazy about the idea of themselves not existing. - Harvey Pekar, ďShort Weekend: A Story About the Cosmic and the Ordinary,Ē American Splendor #3, 1978.
