As if going into a new season without Jeff Francoeur clogging up the lineup wasn’t improvement enough, Mets fans all over the world are absolutely rejoicing today as we bid farewell to Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo too.
This is what addition by subtraction is all about!
Usually we’d wish former players the best of luck, but in this case we’ll just say, “Adiós amigos!”
I’m really looking forward to a great season in 2011. Jose Reyes is running without pain, Carlos Beltran insists he’ll be ready for Opening Day, Chris Young and Chris Capuano are healthy and having solid outings, and how great has Frankie Rodriguez looked this spring!
I haven’t felt this excited about a new Mets season in a couple of years.
Lets Go Mets!
