BASEBALL: Tony! Tony!

Last night's game-winning three-run homer is a good occasion for me to note that I was in favor of the Mets' low-cost acquisition of Tony Clark. Clark's overall numbers still aren't great (batting .235 with no walks), but he's showcased some of his old power (3 homers in 17 at bats). Mo Vaughn's contract remains untradeable and Clark is unlikely to achieve more than stopgap status as an outfielder, but if he can demonstrate that he has his old 30-homer form back, the Mets may well have a guy they can trade in July to a team that needs to upgrade at 1B or DH.
