Jon Rauch's Jeep

Reliever Jon Rauch was unhurt after being involved in a two-car accident following the Mets’ loss Sunday. He took to twitter afterwards:

It sounds like that other guy’s car never had a chance. It needs to go play women’s sports.

    A friend of mine, getting his first used car, bought a 1984 Ford Bronco. Fifteen years old, solid steel, got about eight miles per gallon. Great car.

    One day, a guy driving a sports car didn’t pay attention as he pulled through an intersection and T-boned my friend right in the driver’s door. Fortunately no one was hurt, but the sports car was totaled. The Bronco? A small dent in the door, unnoticeable unless you knew where to look.

    They don’t make them like that anymore.

    That said, I’m glad everyone is OK.

      When I was a senior in high school, the guy I was carpooling with had a ’78 Ford Ranchero (Ford’s version of the Chevy El Camino). I used to comment that I felt safe in any collision short of with a semi on the passenger-side door.

    Am I the only thinking that some NYPD precinct commander is going to get a call tomorrow morning.
    Something like this “2.5 hours response time to a motor vehicle accident? Explain!”

    Can you imagine the guy in the Merc S-Class after the accident? Gets out of his car, full of fire, ready to have a go at the idiot in the jeep and . . . Jon Rauch, listed at 6’11” and 290lbs on baseballref, more tats than herd of gang members and with those crazy bath-salts eyes, gets out of the jeep. Yep. I can see Mr. Merc S-Class calming down in a hurry.

    As a loyal, die hard Mets fan… Selfishly (based on your seasons performance) I almost wish you endured a non career, but Mets season ending injury… That way, you couldn’t blow and lose anymore games…

    Growing up a lunatic who enjoyed drinking and crash up derbies on my friend’s farm just about every weekend, I can attest to the fact that a Delta 88 Oldsmobile can indeed drive straight through a Honda Civic. It may not make it through it the first time, but by the second or third try the Oldsmobile went right through that poor little car.
