Cheer up buddy...you'll be a superstar on the Mets

All Angel Berroa ever did for the Yankees was play catch with A-Rod before games. 

The Mets will now use him as their new SS and #3 hitter.

The team on the field is starting to resemble the area around it.  The team is just the latest chop shop to open up in that section of Queens.

I was going to look for his stats, but when I typed his name in at baseballreference.com, all I got was “who?”.  I figured it was a mistake but when I reloaded the page it said “don’t waste your time…go do something productive with your life”.

This is the second blockbuster move the Mets have made in the past two days, with the aquisition of Jeff "past his prime at 25" Francouer being the first

I guess David Wright needed a new guy to play catch with.

Where can I comment?
