Blaine Boyer Elects Free Agency

Blaine Boyer cleared waivers and elected free agency instead of accepting an assignment to Triple-A Buffalo, according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork (on Twitter). The Mets designated the reliever for assignment over the weekend after he made the team as a non-roster invitee.

Boyer appeared in just five games this year, but after 6 2/3 innings, eight earned runs, 13 hits and just one strikeout, the Mets GM Sandy Alderson had seen enough. The 29-year-old right-hander was more effective last year, when he posted a 4.26 ERA in 57 innings of work for the D'Backs. However, he walked as many batters as he struck out in 2010 (29).

I don’t hate you Boyer, but you’re like…the anti-reliever.
Just go.

Lol. It was only a matter of time for this bum to get the boot. Not a surprise at all that they designated him for assignment in the 1st place. I’m sure Met fans are relieved tremendously.

You know your career is going downhill when you get cut by the Mets.

Problem is, his career was downhill WAYYYY before he joined the Mets. Nice try.

Mets cut Luis Castillo and Nelson Figueroa and they immediately get deals from the Phillies.
Mets don’t resign Wilson Valdes, Pedro Martinez, and Brian Schneider and they get signed by the Phillies.

What point are you trying to prove about players cut by the Mets again?

Wait a few days Boyer. Buffalo will start to look pretty good, when no one else will touch you.

I like Alderson as GM. He cut Boyer because he stunk. That’s a big improvement over Omar.

I think Anderson did the right thing here, but if he is still on the hook to pay him, not a smart move. Same goes for Perez and Castillo. Now the Mets pay people not to play for them.

Its actually a really smart move.. they’re taking up a roster spot that could be filled by someone who could actually contribute to the team’s success. Plus, it sends a message to the rest of the team.
