Bobby Kielty’s in the news this week, apparently trying to make a comeback as a pitcher after being cut by the Mets in the great, mysterious Lake Erie Eradication of 2009.
(If you’ve forgotten — and you probably have — the Mets cut Kielty, Javier Valentin and Wily Mo Pena from their Buffalo club on the same day in late June last year. I’m still not certain why it happened — for all I know, there were contractual reasons for the moves — but it did seem funny that a team desperate for depth should cut the only three hitters on its Triple-A club with any history of Major League success in one fell swoop.)
Anyway, Kielty’s return gives me enough reason to reprint this split image, an underrated athlete/celebrity lookalike, I feel. It’s Kielty with his hat off, and South Park’s Kyle Broflovski in the same condition. Daywalkers both:
