Sure, McReynolds had four really good seasons for the Mets, but he never won an MVP, and he never decapitated a cat. OK, so Mitchell probably never actually decapitated a cat either, but he did win an MVP while McReynolds was playing for the Mets, and having a guy on your team who people think conceivably could decapitate a cat is pretty cool.
