Angel, we hardly knew you

Angel Pagan, the guy with the best name since Homer Bush, was removed from the Mets' 40-man roster and promptly claimed by the Cubs.  He's never been a top prospect, but seems to be fleet of foot and defensively skilled in the outfield.  I saw Pagan lead Brooklyn to the playoffs in early September 2001 and have been waiting for him to hit the bigs ever since, so this makes me a little sad, but honestly it's nice to have a major-league team so flush with decent-hitting outfielders that we can afford to lose him.  If this were the Mets team of 1998-2001 or so he'd probably be starting in center field.

From Rotoworld:

Cubs purchased the contract of outfielder Angel Pagan from the Mets.
Pagan was removed from the Mets' 40-man roster last week. The 24-year-old hit .271/.333/.395 with 27 steals for Triple-A Norfolk last season. He probably won't develop into anything more than a fifth outfielder, and he won't be a candidate to make the Cubs out of spring training. Jan. 25 - 3:53 pm et
