So, about that Mets closer job…
Who had February 12th in the pool for the date that the first significant Mets injury news would break?
When asked how close to 100 percent he felt, Frank Franc told reporters:
Funny, that’s about where my confidence level is in you, Frank Franc.
I suppose this is good news, in a way. If we’re going to have to stress about whether the closer can actually convert save opportunities, better to find out once and for all if Parnell is cut out for the job.
I really can’t believe I thought there would be a bunch of “player x is in the best shape of his life” stories coming out of Mets camp.
