As pointed out by Mike Salfino of SNY Why Guys, there’s more to the additions of relievers Jon Rauch, Frank Francisco and Ramon Ramirez than just the obvious which was to bolster a depleted bullpen.

An article by posted on November 8, 2011 0 Comments

I have always been very complimentary of Alderson, I was happy to see him hired as GM, I liked a few of his moves. Although, when it comes to how he has handled Jose Reyes, I can only say: What the hell are you doing? In spring training, the Mets had an excellent opportunity to have Reyes […]
