The Return Of Perpetual Pedro?

An article by posted on January 15, 2013

For years, the name Pedro Feliciano was a fixture in an otherwise hectic Mets bullpen. His ability to get lefties out was always a plus, and reliability upon him was key. Then following the 2010 season, Sandy Alderson let the then-longest tenured Met on the roster go across town to the rival New York Yankees.

A pair of seasons later, Feliciano never so much as threw a pitched for the Bombers, who paid $8 million for a two-year DL trip. Now Feliciano is a free-agent again, this time reportedly healthy and intending to pitch in Winter Ball according to his agent.

With the Mets in need of a bullpen overhaul, Feliciano would be an inexpensive high-risk, high-reward type of player; the kind of player GM Sandy Alderson goes wild for.

He could be a trusted arm in a pen that is full of anything but. He could help fill a gaping hole that has not even begun to be addressed this winter.

Who’s for the return of the Perpetual Pedro to Flushing? I sure am. Thoughts?
