I Guess the Mets have a No-Beard Policy, Too
Every year at the Mets Holiday party, they invite schoolkids to meet "Santa," who is in actuality a Mets player in the jolly man's guise.
To reward these players for their community service, an apparantly enraged and humbugged Omar Minaya has made it his mission to dump them immediately.
Let's look at the three Santas under Minaya's regime:
2003: John Franco. Status: gone before the next Christmas.
2004: Mike Cameron. Status: gone before the next Christmas.
2005: Kris Benson. Status: Gone before the next Christmas.
Actually come to think of it, if I were a Met I might just ask to play Santa in 2006. You know... uh, for the kids.
