The Curious Case of Gary Mathews, Jr.

Why the Mets wanted him is a mystery.

This acquisition by the Mets also makes their rivalry with the Phillies more compelling. The reason: his father is the Phillies' main color commentator on TV broadcasts. What's worse is that Mathews, Jr. is a controversial figure for a variety of reasons. No doubt, though, that Mathews, Jr. is bound to be a much bigger problem for the Mets than he will be a distraction for the Phillies' broadcasting team.
