    Yes, moving forward.......
    He can't pitch till August. So it is more of a thank you.

    Mets sign Tim Byrdak to minors deal

    Thank you for what? Am I missing something here! Was Byrdak some kind of wonder pitcher warrior for the Mets the last two years.

    Cause he's an affordable space holder who might have something left in the tank. Like it or not, Tim Bryrdak is the prototypical Met.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    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."

    There's nothing to agree with here. He signed with the Mets in 2011 as a LOOGY who became one of the team's most valuable relievers that year. In 2012, he emerged as a big presence in the clubhouse. Despite his performance declining, he had surgery while with the team and being on nothing but a minor league contract allows him to finish his rehab where he started. It's a thank you because it allows him to continue with his current rehab without switching doctors, facilities, and comfort. If there's anything left in the tank, he'll compete once more.

    Do me a favor and look at transactions of all teams. The Detroit Tigers made the following moves this week:

    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.

    Exactly. As soon as the season starts he goes on the DL to finish his rehab. He won't even pitch for the major league club and will be lucky to pitch in a minor league game. He had the same surgery as Johan. There is like a 5 percent chance he pitches this year.

    No, but he got hurt and had surgery while with the Mets. They sign him to a minor league deal, throw him on the DL, and send him on his way when he is better.

    He had the same surgery Johan had this past September. He will be lucky to pitch this year.
