Los Angeles Angels
Johan Santana is due to record tonight's David Letterman "Late Show" Top 10 list at Citi Field postgame, before heading to Washington with his teammates.
It turns out Letterman only a month earlier had presented a script to the Angels' Jered Weaver that included mocking the Mets for lacking a no-hitter.
Weaver, appearing after tossing a no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins, was asked to read a Top 10 list titled: "Top 10 signs you'll never throw a no-hitter."
Weaver told reporters that No. 1 originally was supposed to read: "You pitch for the Mets."
Weaver told Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times: "I felt bad. I couldn't say that. I'm glad they changed it."
No. 1 ended up being: "Most teams don't let the mascot pitch."
