Hey, If Jim Morris Could Do It ...

Armando Benitez is merely the latest ex-major leaguer to become a Long Island duck. Other notable alumni include:

↵

Chucky Carr, Carlos Baerga, Mark Whiten, Rusty Meacham, Bryan Rekar, Bill Pulsipher, Henry Rodriguez, Pete Rose (Jr.), Juan Gonzalez, Pat Mahomes, Edgardo Alfonzo, Carl Everett, Mark Lewis, Jose Offerman, Danny Graves, Donovan Osborne, Jay Gibbons, Richard Hidalgo, Preston Wilson, Dan Miceli, Bill Simas, Joey Gathright, Sidney Ponson, Kip Wells.

↵

The good news for Benitez is that for all of those guys, the Ducks were merely a stop on the way to reëstablishing themselves as good major leaguers.

Wait, what? Oh, right: None of them did that. Still, you can't blame a guy for trying.
