@jay_horwitzpr how quickly we forget

This is why tweeting at seven in the morning is never a good idea. Poor Jay. But hey, they say you don't become a true tweeter until you make a gaffe like this. And to his credit, he responded and apologized on twitter to all those people who mercilessly attacked him for what was nothing more than an honest mistake made by somebody who probably just woke up. So welcome to twitter Jay. You only have 5,773 ridiculous tweets to go before you catch Jose Canseco, so get to work.
Oh well. Now that this is in the past, we can worry about important things like whether the last Met to ever wear number 5 will start on Opening Day.
(Or as Jay Horwitz calls him, John Olerud.)
