Angel Pagan On WFAN: If Healthy, Mets Can Compete

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Mets outfielder Angel Pagan joined Boomer & Carton on Tuesday morning to discuss his one-year, $3.5 million arbitration-avoiding agreement with New York.

Although Pagan, 29, was the Mets’ starting center fielder while Carlos Beltran was sidelined last season, he doesn’t mind giving up the position to make room for his teammate.

“I don’t mind playing any other positions, you know, I think the opportunity is better than just picking your spot.” Pagan said. “Right now it doesn’t matter to me whether it’s in right field or center field.”

According to Pagan, the Mets have “big” expectations heading into 2011, echoing similar sentiments made by Darryl Strawberry on WFAN Monday.

“We’re trying to turn this thing around, you know, we’ve been hit with the injury bug for a couple of years,” said Pagan. “Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins, they’ve been building a good team. If we’re healthy we think we have a good team on paper.”

    No second baseman 1/3 of an outfield, a pitching staff that’s a mess – finishing .500 would be an accomplishment.

  • Bill Murray

    Mets are going to loss so many games this year. It’s going to be Groundhog Day for the Mets for the next 30 years. LOL

  • dico j.

    yeah and if the Queen had balls she be King. Pagan must’ve attended Rex Ryan camp to believe ther Mets can compete. First, they have no pitching, and two, look at their line up, they don’t scare anyone. Pagan is a flash in the pan, almost 30 years old, if he was that good he would be started years ago. In any other team with his numbers he’s on the bench. What the Mets need to worry about is finishing in last place, look out for the Nationals
