Figueroa Becomes Free Agent

By / April 23, 2009 / Uncategorized

So reports the NY Daily News.

Can you really blame Nelson Figueroa? I can’t! The Mets have treated him unfairly. At the same time, he needs to understand, there was no room for him.

I’ve been talking for awhile the Mets needed another lefty in the bullpen. You cannot just have Pedro Feliciano. It gets tough for him and he cannot get it done.

So they brought up Casey Fossum, not like he’s been doing any better. Yet, I’m not going to make a judgment on that just yet. He’s only pitched in two games.

He needs to understand this is the big leagues. Grow up! It’s a business. I’m kind of sick of the whole loyalty approach the Mets have taken with their players.

You do whatever is in the best interest of the team. Loyalty does not necessarily get things done.

So good luck Figueroa!

Grow up is exactly what he did. He decided it was a business and to see what his options of AAA somewhere else would be. He never said the Mets were wrong in what they did but now that he has options to do so why not see if there is a better opportunity with say the Nationals or with the Angels to get back to the big leagues and stay. This game is about opportunity and when given the opportunity can you say he didnt perform? Loyalty is dead and gone in today’s game so you can save that comment. Its about how much you have invested into someone and what you get back in return. The mets had someone making barely over minimum out performing multimillionaires. For a guy who doesnt implode in the 3rd inning and a guy who can give you back to back games with multiple innings he was great value to this team. But we didnt need him, right? Good luck figgie wherever you end up.
