Earlier today, I speculated that Armando Benitez could find a new home in no time. A couple of hours ago, I read that the Giants were going to change things up. It’s already settled: Benitez was sent to Florida (along with some cash, presumably) for Randy Messenger.
Benitez would appear to step right into the closer’s role for Florida, while the Giants will now turn to Brad Hennessey. I can’t wait until the Marlins take their next trip to Shea Stadium: I’ll bet that’s a trip Benitez would prefer to skip.
