Oh Joe!

From Surfing the Mets:

Joe Smith, two years removed from a visit to Shea, when he tagged along with Chad Bradford like a lost child after getting drafted in the third round in 2006, was the victim of a prank from John Maine during a similar visit from this year's high picks.

Maine instructed UNC-Wilmington product Brad Holt, a righthanded pitcher, to approach Smith and say, “You the righthanded specialist? I’m going to take your job.”

At the time, Bradford, for whatever reason, had been rubbed the wrong way by Smith. So Smith's teammates have been giving him a hard time for a while about it.

Joe truly is the cutest!
