The Mets set a most dubious record Friday night, beaten by Prince Fielder and the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 in a rainy, testy matchup.
With the Mets falling out of the playoff race, the focus turns to their future which could either be bright or devastating depending on whether Jose Reyes is retained.
Francisco Rodriguez is fine with being traded to the Brewers. And why wouldn’t he be? Well, according to K-Rod, he previously indicated he did not want to be dealt to the club.
This weekend against the Phillies, if Mets manager Terry Collins needs to pick up the bullpen phone to call for his closer, his decision won’t be so easy.
With their trade for ex-Met Francisco Rodriguez, the Brewers now can call on a pair of potential closers. That’s great news for Milwaukee. For K-Rod, not so much.
Bobby Parnell is the leading candidate to take over as New York Mets’ closer. Without a significant history of closing out games, it’s hard to tell if he has what it takes but Parnell does possess some traits needed to be a successful fireman.
The Mets made their first move in what could be a busy month for general manager Sandy Alderson, trading their big-time closer to Milwaukee.
The Francisco Rodriguez era is over in New York. The Mets traded the former All-Star closer to the Brewers late Tuesday night. The deal was announced following the All-Star game.
Francisco Rodriguez has been the subject of recent trade speculation, with the non-roster deadline approaching on July 31. So the question is, will the closer get save No. 300 in a Mets uniform?
A trio of Mets relievers are reportedly on the trading block. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is “aggressively” shopping closer Francisco Rodriguez, setup man Jason Isringhausen and lefty reliever Tim Byrdak, according to the Daily News.
WFAN and SI.com’s Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers are “interested” in Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran and Francisco Rodriguez.
Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez knows he might be a goner by the July 31 trading deadline, and he’s not against serving in a setup role for a contending team. Including the Yankees.
Chris Capuano pitched six scoreless innings before leaving with a tweak on his right side, Jose Reyes took advantage of Oakland’s shaky new first basemen and the New York Mets beat the Athletics 4-1 on a dreary Thursday.
Sometimes winning isn’t all about apparent talent and that’s precisely what Justin Turner is proving with his continual ability to factor into Met victories. He’s become the prototypical, team-first ballplayer that fits the ‘Terry Collins mold.’
Justin Turner saw sidearmer Brad Ziegler’s pitch coming right for him, so he dug in. He took one for the team, getting hit by a pitch with two outs in the 13th inning to force in the winning run for the Mets.
