Is It For Real This Time?

By / April 26, 2009 / Uncategorized

It does not seem like we can get a straight answer from anywhere about Nelson Figueroa. The New York Daily News seems to be getting wrong all the time.

This time, however, they have got it right. Thank God the MLB network and SNY.

Figueroa has decided to sign with the Mets and accept the minor league assignment.

This was smart because with the problems the Mets are having with the rotation, Figueroa has a great shot at staying with the club, either as a set-up man or as a starter.

Thankfully, Mike Pelrey seems to be okay. Today Oliver Perez takes the mound. If he does not perform well, I expect him to be sent down. Figueroa could come back within a week to two weeks.

It is within the realm of possibility.

Glad to have you back, Figueroa. We’ll be seeing you soon.

Figueroa is a bulldog. He can get knocked down and get right back up. I’d like to see him get a chance at the #5 spot, but the way things are going, he might be competing for the third spot in the rotation. Is it too early to wish for Santana, Pelfrey and three days of rainouts?

Figgy should be given a shot at the #5 spot. The Mets really make me scratch my head..They send Figgy down after his start, call fossum up and just like i called it..he has not gotten the job done. Can the Mets just call him back up..give him a role, and leave him up for the rest of the year. Get rid of Fossum !
