I spoke to someone who once was a minor member of the Mets organization.

Supposedly though, Ray was a serious hothead and would fight people almost any time.

 Phil Wood is pretty much clueless.  Not only does he have zero stage presence, Phil went into this entire Senators story about how in April 1968 everyone in Washington, DC was talking about this new Senators player and everywhere you went that first month of baseball season that's all you'd hear about- this new player.  April 1968 was the DC riots Phil.  Everyone was talking about MLK's assassination, Vietnam and the Riots and no one ever told me they paid attention to the Senators that summer.  That's how out of it Phil is.

Hmmm, sounds like a clone of his Reds teammate Pete Rose -- the "hothead" part.

We did focus on the Senators awhile after the riots in April -- when Big Frank Howard clubbed 10 HRs in just 20 AB.
