Green and the Mets Goes Jewish?

Shawn Green, a native son of Orange County, is going to NY to play for the Mets.

NEW YORK (AP) -Shawn Green is looking forward to playing in front of the large population of Jewish fans in New York.

Traded Tuesday to the Mets by the Arizona Diamondbacks, the outfielder planned to be at Shea Stadium on Thursday for New York’s series finale against St. Louis. The Mets haven’t had a prominent Jewish player since Art Shamsky in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Its a smart move for both of them as he was not thriving in Arizona, batting .283 with 11 home runs and 51 RBIs. Pretty pathetic for a two-time All Star.

So good luck Green, and the Mets, and may the Schwartz be with you.
