More Mets Misery

Here at WSBGMs we find joy in the Mets misery. Whether that be an epic collapse late in September, owner's investment scandal, having Andy Martino as a beat writer, a closer that is psycho, or the latest...a clubhouse manager that bets on baseball.

New York Mets clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels has been with the team since 1976 and is in the middle of a gambling investigation by the NYPD. Samuels has admitted to betting on baseball on at least one occasion and has also bet on NFL games. It's believed that he even "borrowed" money from the organization without their knowledge to payoff debts from failed bets. On Thursday the Mets suspended him. Guess he can kiss his Hall of Fame plaque goodbye.
