  • Mike Matheny



    Full name: Michael Scott Matheny
    Born: 09/22/70
    Birthplace: Reynoldsburg,OH
    Height: 6'3"
    Weight: 220
    Position: C
    Bats: Right
    Throws: Right
    College: Michigan, heh heh, just kidding. He actually went to Sanford Brown College
    MLB Debut: 04/07/94

    P's & C's report today, so we will celebrate Mike Matheny. I think everyone by now is pretty familiar with my opinion of his looks and stuff, so umm, well, let's see... that's a funny mugshot of him, isn't it? Looks like he had been out late the night before.

    I like his birthday. I am a double digit birth day person too, so that's neat. He was born the same year as I was too, but I am older so I got my driver's license before him.

    He is way taller than I am. I noticed he was very polite last year when I let him sign my hat.

    I think he's one of the smarter people on our team. I think catching is a tough job...especially when you have to deal with dipsquats like brett tomko (sorry kaiser). I will be interested to see this pitching staff this year...I am hoping for the best and if things look good with some of the question pitchers, then I think I would probably attribute some of that to Matheny. I didn't blame him last year for the pitching woes because it is hard to make a junkyard smell good. I mean, come on, Garrett...Brett....?

    People rip him for his bat, but I tend to look at it like how many runs did he save for us either by throwing would be stealers out or not losing the ball as someone tried to barrell him over. And there were a few times last year when his bat contributed.

    Happy Matheny Day!

        Good defense.

        Bad, bad hitter--Every spring, we hear how he's working with Van Slyke or just read "Hitting for Dummies" or something and now he's really gonna break out. Never happens. Never will happen.

        Slow.

        Drinks too much.
        I'm always right.

              I would rather have him than piazza although people will disagree with me, I bet.

              I prefer good defensive catchers.

                Piazza, at this point, is an awful defensive catcher, especially from a throwing standpoint. Apparently he needs just a few home runs to become the all time leader in home runs by a catcher. So even though the Mets know better, Piazza will be the catcher, at least for a while. They'd better hope it's a short while.
                I'm always right.

                    I hear that Piazza would rather have Matheny than you, too.

                    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

                      I figured that was a given.

                          So, Soo,

                          you don't like Michigan, I take it?

                          If you want, I will change his college. Just let me know.
