Back in October, I blogged extensively on several rumors that had the Mets hotly pursuing Seattle Mariners closer, J.J. Putz. Those rumors died down in November when it became apparent that the mariners’ asking price was extraordinarily high.

The Mets decided to bring back a few of their own minor league free agents today and signed pitchers Nelson Figueroa and Adam Bostick, infielder Andy Green and catcher Rene Rivera. The four of them will be invited to spring training as non-roster players.

I was only 7 years old and it was he who taught me to appreciate the beauty of the game, the sheer majesty of Baseball. My dad explained to me to enjoy the unknown, the unexpected. The anticipation of what […]
