Mets Third Baseman Goes To Bat For Faith Healer

So it’s Saturday afternoon and we’re watching the Mets on Ch. 11. They’re playing the Cubs in Wrigley, when, during a commercial break, David Wright, in his Mets uniform and standing in Shea, pops up to tell us:

“Hi, I’m David Wright. I invite you to the ‘Salvation Miracles Revival Crusade’ with Dr. Jaerock Lee, at Madison Square Garden, July 27, 28 and 29.”

Says BusinessWeek columnist and Mets fan Jon Fine: “This is sort of like when Donn Clendenon did that ad campaign for Scientology, except that never happened and this just did.”

Though if Lee can help increase Jose Reyes‘ on-base-percentage, we’re all for it.
