Remember Brian Bruney? He is well known in New York for his comments about Francisco Rodriguez last year. If you don’t remember, this is basically what happened:

After K-Rod blew his first save last year, when Luis Castillo dropped the pop up against the Yankees, Bruney said, "It couldn't happen to a better guy on the mound, either. He's got a tired act."

Because of this comment, the two almost fought before a game a couple of days later.

Now the Mets have signed Bruney to a minor-league deal. Bruney has pitched with the Nationals earlier this year, going 1-2 with a 7.64 ERA before being released.
