I love how you nailed it Marty.
Thank you for what? Am I missing something here! Was Byrdak some kind of wonder pitcher warrior for the Mets the last two years.
You don't have to pay him for most of the season, so that sounds great to the Mets.
In the off chance they are actually competitive at the ASB and need a LOOGY, they can say "hey, Tim Byrdak is almost ready to come up."
Agreed to terms with RHP Trevor Bell, RHP Cesar Carrillo, RHP Shane Dyer, RHP Shawn Hill, RHP Micah Kellogg, RHP David Kopp, RHP Victor Larez, RHP Carlos Monasterios, RHP Jesse Todd, LHP Jose Alvarez, LHP Ramon Garcia, LHP Efrain Nieves, C Brad Davis, INF Argenis Diaz, INF Lance Durham, INF John Lindsey, INF/OF Marcus Lemon, INF/OF Kevin Russo and INF/OF Matt Tuiasosopo on minor league contracts.
Tell me, how many of these players are "expensive"? These are moves that happen with every club. You're ridiculous.
