Found July 19, 2012 on Hall of Very Good:
PLAYERS: Kris Benson
TEAMS: New York Mets

Via The Hall of Very Good:

Years ago, while Kris Benson was a pitcher for the New York Mets, Anna Benson famously told Howard Stern that if her husband ever cheated on her, she would sleep with every other member of the team. It appears it’s a punchline she might regret.

According to reports, the former hurler served his then-wife with divorce papers in March after she said she discovered evidence he was having an affair.

“I’m very sad about this...Kris was my whole life. And he left me for someone else and he just abandoned us," Anna Benson said.  “I introduced (my friend) to Kris because she’s going through a divorce and I wanted to help her by getting someone trustworthy, who I thought would be Kris, to manage her money.”

Now retired from baseball, Kris works for New York-based Monarch Wealth & Business Management.  Anna, as you might remember, was one of the baseball wives featured on the VH1 show, aptly titled, "Baseball Wives".

The couple is separated and Anna is claiming that Kris is forcing her to sell the family’s 8,000-square-foot Georgia home.  She also says that she asked her husband to buy the family a home in the $300,000 to $400,000 range...reportedly less than half of their former home's asking price. 

The former number one draft pick had other ideas.

“Kris said that we should move into a $56,000 house that he bought as a flip in the ghetto.  His attorneys have told my attorneys that I can just move in with my mother,” Anna added. “But this is not about me. I’ll sleep on the floor in the dirt...I don’t care. This is about my children having a roof over their heads. I have no income. I’m disabled. I have no way to earn a living. What the hell does he expect?" Benson had foot surgery earlier this year, and claims Kris began an extramarital affair with one of her friends while she recovered.

Something tells me this thing is going to be a messy one.

Harvey in the bullpen could be Mets best bet in 2012

Despite management’s decision to have Miguel Batista start on Saturday, there is a great outcry to have 2010 first round pick Matt Harvey called up and fill the void in the rotation left by Dillon Gee’s blood clot injury. The logic makes sense. Harvey has handled triple-A pretty well and the Mets seem to lack the depth necessary to effectively fill in for Gee. Even if Gee was...

Santana & The Soggy Mets: Mets Lineup V. Dodgers - July 20, 2012

If the Mets get this game in tonight, it will be against the Dodgers. With the weather being absolutely cloudy and wet in NY, chances are they might be a future double header. Tonight Mr. No-no will take the hill against the Dodgers, and hopefully Johan and the Mets can build upon the win yesterday that halted a 6 game losing streak. Now is the time for the Mets to put together a nice 6 or 7

For the Mets, relief may have to come from within

It’s no secret that the Mets bullpen has been problematic all season long.  As a whole the Mets are the only team with a bullpen ERA over 5 and rank dead last in the majors in that category. So with the trade deadline approaching and the Mets ship heading in a sinking direction, fans have called for the front office to plug the holes.  This is an understandable cry for help...

Are You Worried About Johan Santana?

I’m sure you all remember the tearful post-game presser by Terry Collins on the night of June 1, 2012. That was the historic date of Johan Santana’s no-hitter, the first in Mets franchise history. Collins had originally intended to cap Johan’s pitches at 115, and you could se him agonizing after every pitch that went beyond that. At one point, Collins walked to the mound to...

It seems so long ago that the Mets were fun to watch

New York Mets manager Terry Collins called a players-only meeting prior to Wednesday night’s game versus the Washington Nationals and his team responded by dropping their sixth straight game and nine out of their last ten, remaining winless in the second half. With the 4-3 loss to the Nats, NY dropped to 46-45 and 5 games behind the NL Wild Card leaders: It seems so long ago that...

Thoughts on tonight’s starting lineup

1) Ruben Tejada SS 2) Daniel Murphy 2B 3) David Wright 3B 4) Ike Davis 1B 5) Lucas Duda RF 6) Jason Bay LF 7) Andres Torres CF 8) Josh Thole C 9) Johan Santana LHP Obviously the biggest story tonight is if Johan Santana can get back to his pre-no-hitter self. Since throwing the franchises first no-hitter Santana is 3-4 with a 5.67 ERA in 39 innings pitched. Terry...

Bullpen Blows Another One as Mets Fall to Nationals 5-4.
