K-Rod to the M-E-T-S

I know I haven't posted in a while and this is slightly old news but i've been sick. I'm back now and have to start with the big news on the NY Mets front. K-Rod has signed with the Mets. I have to say I'm shocked by this deal for a number of different reasons. To start with I can't believe this deal happened so quickly. I thought this was gonna be a long drawn out thing like the Sabathia deal. Also his deal was no where near what everyone was expecting. All the chatter was he wanted 4 or 5 guaranteed years. In the end he settled for 3 years and 37 million with a vested option for a 4th. I bet this pissed Brian Fuentes off. He was probably looking at at least that if K-Rod got what he was supposedly asking for. Now that we have arguably the best closer in the game lets work on getting him some more bullpen help. Whatdya say Omar?

Take that all you 86 Topps haters!!!

I'm excited about K-Rod but who is going to pitch the 7th and 8th?
