Today the Mets released Jose Valentin, Tony Armas Jr,and Junior Spivey from their Minor League Camp.
Valentin, who will always be remembered for his unexpected contributions to the 2006 Mets will sorely be missed. Although he was never expected to make this years roster, it was hoped and expected he would hone his new skills as a player coach, and someday manager.
I know for myself and Long Island Met Fan, we will miss the leadership of the Stache.
