Bravo to Sandy Alderson who successfully jettisoned Luis Castillo and Oliver Perez - now if Sandy can send Fred, Jeff and Saul packing next we’d really have a franchise we could root for.
I’m relieved we won’t have to endure relentless booing at the home opener - unless Fred or Jeff steps foot on the field that is. I think Alderson likely took the intangible negativity of fans booing their own players into account more than he’s willing to admit. No one, especially a new GM hired to clean up a current mess, wants home games poisoned by fan vitriol.
Y’know the Mets are the only team going whose 2 biggest player personnel moves this off-season were releasing guys under contract. Most fanbases celebrate when a player is signed - too bad we’re reduced to waiting/rooting for players to get cut.
Only the Mets boys and girls, only the Mets.
Pelf got rocked in the 4th but was cruising until then. I’m worried about Pelfrey squaring off vs team aces all season.
I think he can have a big year and take another step forward but it would be much easier to do so in the 2 slot.
