As a fan of the TV comedy "The Goldbergs," I was delighted when the Mets announced that Ruben Amaro, Jr. was their new first-base coach in November 2017.  As a player, he was less than spectacular, but he made a name for himself as the general manager of the Phillies following his playing career.  So it was something of a surprise when he returned to the diamond as a coach for the Red Sox after his inevitable dismissal as Phillies' GM.  Nevertheless, here he is, on his 1992 Upper Deck card.  After a single season as a member of the Mets' staff, he joined the front office as an advisor to new GM Brodie Van Wegenen.
