The Mets should release nearly their entire bullpen and call up any player in their system. They can’t possibly do any worse.

His time to hang them up has finally come. But this guy was one heck of a class act and about as versatile as they came for almost a decade there. I hope for the best for him.

one less met player that thinks their team is better than the nationals (said as the mets were in the middle of a 1-13 slide, including losing 5 of 6 to the nats).
