Mets Miss Out On Lugo

By / July 22, 2009 / Uncategorized

Let the rumors rest. The Mets will not be getting the services of Julio Lugo. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has reported that Lugo has been sent to the Cardinals in exchange for Chris Duncan.

I know one Boston Red Sox fan that is very happy Lugo is no longer a part of the team. He was not exactly a great contributor to the Sox. They all wanted him out. The Sox will still be paying for his $13.5 million that is owed to him.

Lugo has 16 errors under his belt this year along and was not exactly a big bat hitting only at .268. He suffered a torn quadriceps muscle.

The Cards must have been desperate to be rid of Duncan to make this move. I fail to see this as a move that would benefit either team, especially the Sox since they still have to pay Lugo. Duncan is still recovering from a back surgery he had during the offseason. He is only hitting .227.

Good luck to both teams on this one.

I’m glad Lugo is not a Met. I think he’s done and would not have made the Mets a better ballclub.
