Mets Reacquire Armando Benitez

AP - Late Saturday night, the Mets have reacquired one-time closer Armando Benitez from the San Francisco Giants in exchange for RF Lastings Milledge.

Benitez, the Mets closer from 1999-2002, including 2000 when they faced their hometown rival New York Yankees, returns with something to prove.

"I always felt that I never quite lived up to my expectations in New York," said Benitez in an early morning phone call. "As a fan favorite, I feel that I let some fans down."

Benitez continued on, "If you believe that, you're in for a long Sunday. April fools."
