Izzy Asks Alderson Not To Trade Him
According to the New York Daily News, Izzy has asked Sandy Alderson to not trade him. When asked about being traded, Isringhausen said this.
I have two places in my hear; St. Louis, because I’m from there, and New York, because this is where I started. Those are my two favorite spots, and I don’t think I’m going back to St. Louis anytime soon. And I love it here…To be able to get close, or maybe even make the playoffs, coming from a team that wasn’t supposed to do anything, that’s fun..If there is a chance that we can do that, I want to be a part of it…I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, let alone next year, but for the next year, I want to remain a Met. I signed here to be a Met, and that’s how I want to finish the season. It would be great to keep everybody intact.”
In response to Izzy making these comments, GM Sandy Alderson said that “its a form of expression” and will “take it into account and will weigh it accordingly”.
Its great to see a player like Izzy say that he wants to stay with the team. It also speaks volumes about the manager and the morale in the clubhouse.
Do you think Jason Isringhausen will be traded? Do you think his comments will have an impact on being traded?
