Smith And The Pink Backpack

Anthony DiComo at Mets.com writes about Billy Wagner's gift to Joe Smith before last night's game:

Rummaging through some belongings in his locker prior to Wednesday's game against the Angels, Billy Wagner pulled out a bright pink backpack and, beaming -- almost cackling -- handed it to Joe Smith.

It was the brightest object in the room, emblazoned top to bottom with Hello Kitty logos. Smith's expression drooped as Wagner told him that from now until the end of the year, he would have to carry the backpack out to the bullpen with him before every game.
