    More Details Hide Details She was ejected for excessive cursing. The New York Times, having previously noted Anna Benson's "calculated outrageousness," wrote that "in her one year in New York, Anna Benson drove the Mets to distraction." Sports reporter Murray Chass, described by baseball's Hall of Fame as "a pioneer in the coverage of business and labor issues within baseball," wrote of the Mets-Orioles trade, "Kris Benson doesn't have a good enough arm for the Mets to overlook his wife's mouth.... And by trading Anna Benson, the Mets may have achieved what Yankees manager Casey Stengel called addition by subtraction." Kris Benson himself later said that he felt New York traded him to Baltimore because of his wife, but Omar Minaya, general manager of the Mets, ultimately discounted speculation that her behavior had played a role, saying, "We just made a baseball trade." Mirroring Chass' linkage of the Bensons, Sports Illustrated opined that Anna Benson's "outlandish antics" had ultimately come to overshadow her husband's "few good years" in the major leagues.

The Bensons were soon labeled "baseball's most incongruous couple," with Anna having "diverted attention" from a star pitcher who "often fades into the periphery." Anna filed for divorce on March 31, 2006, citing an "irretrievably broken" marriage.
