With the offseason officially upon us, we say goodbye to the 2014 teams that we loved and hated and to the players on those rosters. I say this because the free agency period begins on Tuesday and there are many, many big-time players and MVP caliber athletes who can make an impact wherever they sign and cause chaos to the team they leave.
Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the National League’s mid-season team MVPs.
The Mets “wouldn’t rule him out” based on his infamous 2010 arrest at Citi Field, Newsday’s Marc Carig reported on Twitter. But Carig also cautioned it’s unclear whether K-Rod is actually “in the mix.”
We present to you Bobby Jones, Bobby Bonilla, Francisco Rodriguez and some of the Mets’ biggest All-Star flameouts of all time.
“I would love to (return to the Mets),” Rodriguez said. “They’ve got a great coaching staff over there. To come back and redeem myself would be great … To be able to get one more shot and get it done would be great.”
Milwaukee Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez was arrested last month on a domestic violence complaint involving his girlfriend.
Anybody who has watched the Mets lately knows they sorely need bullpen help. How they get it is a major question. And perhaps a bigger question is, where SHOULD they get it from?
Two Mets players said all the right things this weekend about a possible reunion with Francisco Rodriguez. But apparently it’s not all so hunky-dory.
Despite being traded by New York nearly one year ago, Francisco Rodriguez has never ruled out a future reunion at Citi Field. Apparently the Amazin’s haven’t either.
After watching Jose Reyes walk without so much as a slap on the rump juxtaposed with the Mets’ recent desire to talk contract extension with David Wright, I wondered if Alderson knew something we didn’t. Are the Mets in fact better without Reyes?
Despite the big-name signings of Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson, the Los Angeles Angels haven’t distanced themselves from the 2012 Yankees.
The Mets responded to the departure of Jose Reyes with a busy Tuesday night in which they traded Angel Pagan and signed a pair of free agents. Rich Coutinho joined Neil Keefe for an epic email discussion to talk about the moves and to try and make sense out of the crazy week for the Mets.
Sandy Alderson didn’t tip his hand that he was onto some big moves when he spoke to reporters Tuesday afternoon, but he got quite busy a few hours later acquiring three relievers and a new center fielder.
Francisco Rodriguez’s $17.5 million mutual option has been declined, and the Milwaukee Brewers reliever was among 148 players who become free agents Sunday.
K-Rod would rather close games — and hey, you never know. He could have that opportunity again in New York.
