Of course I'm only disgruntled because this means that somehow Frank made his way onto my fantasy roster again, this could get ugly.
Better than giving Papelbon 60 million, the Mets learned their lesson after K-Rod. I thought Francisco and Rauch were good moves, bad teams should never spend money on their bullpen. Both wouldn't be a problem to trade. The Mets don't have closer prospects anyway. The 2012 season is already over (cue Stewie gif), 2013 looks better when Wheeler and Harvey will be ready and Johan is fully recovered. All I'm hoping for this year is either Bay gets hurt or plays well enough to get traded and the Mets can only eat 2/3rds of his salary.
