Mets not making much news on the signing front today but Terry Colling gave his 2 cents on some players. He thinks the Mets will have Bobby Parnell pitching the 8th inning leading up to K Rod in the 9th. Parnell has tried this before under Manager Jerry and didn't succeed too well at this. Parnell should really step up. He needs to use his secondary pitches so he can blow hitters away with his fastball.
Mets rookie Ruben Tejada should spend most of the year in triple A according to Collins.Hopefully the Mets will not be hurt with injuries so the kid can maybe bulk up and hit a bit better.
Another former Met finds a new home. Jeff Francoeur signed a deal with the KC Royals for 2.5M plus incentives with a mutual option for 2012. My partner in crime at this point is in mourning. We wish the best to Frenchy who can throw like the best of them. Will miss seeing that laser on 1 hop to home plate to nail a runner. Jeff, a fan favorite, will only be in NY when the Royals face the Yankees. The Mets will play the west coast teams in interleague play in 2011.
