Former Met Jeff Kent Joins ‘Survivor’ Cast

Former Mets second baseman Jeff Kent is joining the ‘Survivor: Philippines” cast set to debut on CBS on September 19. Kent played for the Mets from ’92-’96 and was the 2000 NL MVP with the Giants.

His inclusion in the cast should make for interesting TV as he was known to have a prickly personality during his playing days. He was part of the ill-fated trade to Cleveland in ’96 with Carlos Baerga coming back to the Mets.

During Kent’s five years with the Mets, he hit .279 67 HR’s, and 276 RBI’s. Of course, he went on to bigger things with the Dodgers and Giants after leaving the Mets.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
