Are Valdespin’s Days As A Met Numbered?

Please, join me as I throw a handful of dirt on the coffin of Jordany Valdespin’s career as a New York Met. The one I used to call El Dramático for his ability to spark rallies and hit long home runs is getting playing time for one reason: he’s being shopped. Don’t expect him to […]

Wile there was a halfhearted attempt made in trading for Justin Upton or signing free agent Michael Bourn, readers here will remember my […]
