Fate of Mets Closer Up in the Air After the Break

With all the attention now shifted off of Jose Reyes, the status of Francisco Rodriguez as a Met, has been brought into the forefront as we head into the break.

Earlier today, I commented on Joe Janish's Mets Today blog for the post entitled, "Francisco Rodriguez Signs with Scott Boras."

Okay, K-Rod has been pretty good so far, 23/26 SavOpp - 46K/42.2 IP - his ERA has been below average of what we expect out of a prime closer...if the Mets were not so cash-strapped, I think they would have eaten the option for next year and just kept him.

As for Boras, he's a business man, if he's within his right, I say, so be it...K-Rod will be a tough sell, no question, his stock has dropped since he signed that god-forsaken option.

  1. After this post, K-Rod was traded to the Brew Crew for players to be named later.
