I'm surprised all he can get is three years.

Great deal for the Mets if it goes through.

And great for the Red Sox when they go to sign Papelbon.

This guy really knows how to suck the air out of a home crowd...good luck, good riddance...by the way guys, he wants his own dugout; not a team player and that's been for the past couple years...

A very big pickup for the Mets.

Really? 62 saves and you're saying good riddance? Interesting. This is a helluva move for the Mets.

He's definitely an upgrade for the Mets' bullpen, but Rodriguez was arguably the 5th best closer in the AL last year.

This move is like plugging a pipe at both ends when the leak is in the middle. The Mets still need to get from their starters to Rodriguez, and that is where their biggest problem was last year.

I'd much rather have Lidge than Rodriguez.

Good move for the Mets. You gotta start somewhere, and that's not at all a bad way to do it.

That's the thing about closers....they are in the bullpen clubhouse until the seventh, warm-up, pitch the ninth and go home. Who needs a dugout?


I just hope this could help Santana win a few more games.

Really...yes, really, I'm 6 miles from the park and can hear the groan from here whenever he came in...NOT a fan favorite...I want you to tell me he's a good move for the Mets after this season...for your sake, I hope he saves 63 but he's still an ass. You see the Angels TRIED REALLY HARD to keep him...
