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.”
