Picked Up by the Mets
Standridge said farewell to the Reds organization on November 13, 2006 when he was picked up off waivers by the New York Mets.
Fans of the reigning hottest Red couldn’t be found for comment, but there’s no question that the organization as a whole is less good looking for his departure.
Standridge was best known for not quite living up to the nickname I wanted to give him: Jason Strandridge. The appearance on Fear Factor that he and his wife were rumored to have been approached about apparently never happened. And I’m not sure Fear Factor is even on the air anymore, so it’s not looking good for the future. Perhaps he’ll get his shot on The Flavor of Love.
