Ray Knight was a miserable manager and coach.

Former manager of the Cincinnati Reds and the guy who scored off Mookie Wilson's grounder through the legs of Bill Buckner in Game 6 of the 86 World Series, Ray Knight is pretty much a turd in a blue and grey uniform hitting in the 7 spot for the Mets.

See this page (http://www.baseball-reference.com/k/knighra01.shtml) for Knight's unspectacular but just good enough to have an everyday job in the majors lifetime hitting stats.

In the desert of Arizona, Ray Knight is known as Ray Lopez, due to his marriage to the LPGA golfer.
