       Where he will win 10 games this season. Really, it happens to every former Rangers prospect.

    If he makes it to the Mets, I seriously hope they pick him up. They need BP desperately. 

  3. I agree diehardmets!

    Why him instead of someone like Berken? At least he has not been proven ineffective…

    However, I do understand this move a little bit because he was supposed to become a lefty specialist in AAA, but lefties ended up hitting about .400 against him.

      Don’t worry, he’ll always be in the O’s history books as giving up one of Josh Hamilton’s 4 hrs in a game.
