It may sound sorta ludicrous but I swear a kid like Pedro Beato just might be able to save the Mets this year even if ownership collapses around him.
Of course, BMF is gonna root for a kid from Brooklyn but Beato has all the ingredients needed to be a child of destiny for us.
Born on the day the Mets last won the WS in ‘86, Pedro was a standout at Xavarian in Brooklyn which led to his favorite team drafting him…
But then in typical Met fashion they refused to pay over slot to sign the kid so he was lost to BAL in the following years draft.
Now suddenly he’s back as a rule 5 player which means we have to keep him on the roster all year or he goes back to Baltimore.
Look we need some cheap labor this year and a kid who can start or relieve and plays for league minimum might be the answer.
Now consider the fact that he’ll sell seats and will generate tons of great press all summer and BMF thinks we should keep this kid for the intangibles alone.
Why not, what have we got to lose?
Aside from Pedro Beato for the SECOND TIME!
