Will Pedro Feliciano Be Back In 2011?

One of the first decisions the new Mets GM will have to make, is to decide whether he will simply let lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano walk and become a free agent, sign him to a multi year deal, or offer him arbitration. “Perpetual Pedro” is quite possibly one of the most reliable and durable relievers in the game […]

An article by posted on October 2, 2010 0 Comments

Personally, I’d like him back in the same role next season, but I have to wonder.
