Meet the Mets
Despite earning a spot on my fantasy baseball roster (Mr. Irrelevant in a 336 player draft), Nick Evans appears bound for baseball purgatory again with the Mets. Toby Hyde evaluates the decision from all aspects in this post while Joe Janish speculates about possible landing spots for the Invisible Man.
Evans isn't the only one who will probably be disappointed this Spring. The Mets want to keep all their relievers and have asked Jason Isringhausen to stay in Port St. Lucie for another week or so to build arm strength. If the move went according to plan, it would enable the team to keep Boyer, Isringhausen, and Acosta.
I feel like we hear the same story from Florida every year about the Mets potentially leaving Port St. Lucie.
Sandy Alderson sat down with MLB Trade Rumors and reminisced about his two acquisitions of Rickey Henderson, who he identified as the greatest player he ever had.
Apparently, Meet the Mets can be a good motivational tool outside of baseball too.
We give David Eckstein a hard time here, but in all seriousness, he's really a stand-up guy.
Among the items stolen from Evan Longoria's Spring Training rental home: an AK-47.
Chad Billingsley has re-upped with the Dodgers.
And, finally, Jose Canseco apparently didn't feel like getting punched, so he sent his twin brother to take a beating for him.
