As reported last week by USA Today, the Mets have cut ties with last years infielder, Argenis Reyes and the pitching reject-turned felon, Ambiorix Burgos.
I was the first one screaming for the Mets to cut loose Burgos. But I do not understand why they would cut Reyes?
He may not have hit well, but he was a good second baseman. Better than Luis Castillo. He did hit 218 with a .259 OBP in 49 games. His fielding numbers were 1.000.
Maybe the Mets wanted a second baseman who could, a la Edgardo Alfonso. Ah! Those were the days!
As for Burgos…that was a waste of a trade. We should still have Brian Bannister right now.
