Brewers’ K-Rod: Return To Mets Could Be In Future

NEW YORK (WFAN) — The Mets are on the outside looking in. But Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez is still in the hunt for a championship, thanks to New York general manager Sandy Alderson.

“I don’t have no hard feelings for nobody,” Rodriguez said of the Mets on Sunday.

“They did what they had to do. They needed to unload a lot of money and I was making too much money. But you never know what’s going to happen one year from now, two years from now.”

Rodriguez pitched a hitless eighth inning en route to a 9-6 win over St. Louis for Milwaukee in the NLCS opener.

K-Rod would rather close games — and hey, you never know. He could have that opportunity again in New York.

The soon-to-be free agent is keeping his options open.

“Who knows,” he said. “In the future I could be wearing a Mets uniform.”

The Mets traded K-Rod at the All-Star break. The cash-strapped franchise couldn’t risk Rodriguez finishing 55 games, which would have triggered his $17.5 million option for 2012.

The sides attempted to figure out a solution but couldn’t get it done.

“We tried,” said Rodriguez. “I guess it worked out better at this point.”

    MILWAUKEE, WI. – Oct. 9, 2011 (AP) The Milwaukee Star is reporting that following the Brewers win on Sunday, K-Rod went home and beat the holy cr@p outta any family members he could locate. Only reason given: “I could not find my father-in-law.”

    Things are tight here in met land so no K-Rod.

    And that Carton is a buffoon.

  3. Paul says:

    K-Rod was a lot better than most Mets fans give him credit for. Then again, most Mets fans hate their own team more than Mets haters! Mets fans are some of the worst fans in baseball. All they talk about is prospects and the free agents that they don’t have and completely disregard the players on the field.

  4. Pete says:

    If KRod returns to the Mets, will WFAN fire Craig Carton? If yes, then make it happen.
