Just when I think nothing could shock me anymore. This is something that even I’m stunned to hear.
Bart Hubbuch of the Post reported today that Francisco Rodriguez is back with the team after being in tears from back spasms before last night’s game against the Red Sox.
Rodriguez has stated that he is feeling great. The muscle relaxers he received at the hospital worked. He wants to close tonight.
That’s pretty funny. No chance in hell would I let him.
Jerry Manuel said the Mets will proceed with caution with him.
I do not think the Mets should use him. Let Rodriguez rest. They have JJ Putz. He can cover the closer’s role. This is another reason why he was brought here. Let him do it.
