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.
Mo’s record is under fire by some who question the validity of the stat. Does Rivera’s record deserve greater praise from the baseball community? Share your opinions inside.
Some may say we have a Mariano Rivera obsession. You’re damn right we do. It’s one of those oxymoronic, healthy diseases, backed by 602 saves, making Mariano now and forever the king of closers. Yes. Forever.
Did you know Mariano Rivera is about to become the all-time saves leader, passing Trevor Hoffman, who has 601. No doubt Rivera was crowned long before he becomes the official king of closers, but there’s more meat to this feat than you may think.
