Transplanted ex-Mets update: Anthony Young

Anthony McCarron has a nice piece in the Daily News today about ex-Mets pitcher Anthony Young, the guy everyone remembers for the longest losing streak in baseball history.

Transplanted Ex-Mets Update: Tony Clark

Tony Clark has signed a 1 year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks for $800,000.  Tony is 36 years old and is tied for #196 on the all time home run list with 247 dingers, and once hit three homers in a game for the Junkees, but undoubtedly the highlight of his career was backing up Jason Phillips at 1st base for the 2003 New York Mets.
