The Rays sign a cyborg

Chris Carter Mets

Really: former Mets’ outfielder  Chris Carter was been described by his teammates as “a baseball cyborg,” after he wowed them with his work ethic and intensity during spring training. Adam Rubin reports that the Tampa Bay Rays have signed Carter to a minor league deal.

If Carter is a cyborg, something malfunctioned in his positronic net. Because after being called up the by the big club back in May, he was only able to muster a line of .263/.317/.389 in 180 plate appearances.  Perhaps a Level One diagnostic is in order.

If not, he may have to be retired.

    The Mets were astounded by his incredible work ethic. He showed up for practice on time and worked out for over 30 minutes at least twice a week.

      Beat me to it. Was going to say “Mostly shows up, doesn’t steal too much, good tipper. Another Frenchie.

    Something must be wrong with his flux capacitor.
    Oh wait, that’s for time travel. Never mind.
