Jeff Kent, who missed out on being the Mets' all time second baseman by a scant millions and millions of votes, has made news anyway on this off day. And this one is rich with irony, as Jeff Kent, who couldn't bother himself to socialize with anybody in a baseball clubhouse, will now be thrown on an island with 17 other people as he is rumored to be on the upcoming season of Survivor: Philippines.

"He didn't play the game to make friends. He played the game to compete and to win." -Ned Coletti

And now he'll try his hand at the ultimate social game, where competing and winning is dependent on making friends. Oh, this is going to be awesome. Besides the fact that Kent could get eaten by piranhas, sharks, wild boars, or pissed off roosters, Kent actually has to interact with people! Maybe he'll go all "Coach" on everyone and try to do tai-chi by himself on the beach for three weeks. If he gets to the day where they bring the family members in, they could screw him up and bring Barry Bonds in. Or they could have a challenge Kent has to pop a wheelie on a motorcycle without breaking his wrist so his tribemates could all get burgers. Or, he could be involved in a challenge where the tribe all has to put on clown suits.

The next alliance Kent is in would be his first.
