Jeff Francoeur ended his Mets career as their cleanup hitter. There’s something wrong with that, isn’t there? Though, it is in line with the Mets starting their season with Mike Jacobs in that lineup spot.
So in the end, the Mets ultimately turned Lastings Milledge into Joaquin Arias. Well, at least Arias was once traded for Alex Rodriguez.
With Arias on the club, how the heck are the Mets going to find at-bats for Luis Hernandez?
In other news, the Mets announced that Lucas Duda and Jenrry Mejia have been promoted to the big club.
