Sandy Koufax: Double agent?

Mar 1, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

Last week Sandy Koufax checked into Mets camp, helping out Oliver Perez. This week he’s in Arizona with the Dodgers:

Torre said Koufax is in Arizona to visit family, but he’s expected to
soon appear at Camelback Ranch-Glendale, as he did last year, and no
doubt will watch Kershaw at work, as he did two years ago at Dodgertown.

“It was pretty awesome,” said Kershaw. “We talked for an hour and it
was unbelievable. I learned more on one plane trip than I have in a
long time. Honeycutt is great with the mechanics, but at the same time,
this is one of the best ever. It’s pretty cool.

Maybe he went to Mets’ camp because of the Wilpon’s well-known fixation on the Dodgers, and he’s probably going to Camelback because he, you know, played a little bit for the Dodgers. I’d like to think, however, that Koufax just roams the Earth, helping southpaws whenever he may find them. Like a pitching High Plains Drifter or something.

Either that or he was really working deep cover for the Dodgers last week and intentionally messed up the Mets’ pitchers. Which would be fine too.

    As much as I enjoy the idea of Koufax being a double agent, the reason he goes to Mets camp every Spring is because he and Wilpon played on the same high school team and have been friends since. And because Wilpon desperately wishes he owned the Brooklyn Dodgers…

    why would the OP include factual information when it would prevent him from taking a jab at the mets? I mean who needs to truth anymore?
