Argenis Reyes and Ambiorix Burgos…gone

The Mets failed to tender contracts to Argenis Reyes and Ambiorix Burgos last week, making them free agents.  The result?  The two players I hated watching hit the most in 2008 are both gone (although at least Endy had defensive value; Reyes only had defensive value compared to the other, lousier second basemen the Mets employed).  Reyes made lousy hitters like Robinson Cancel look like David Wright by comparison.  I will miss Burgos, though.  It’s not every day where you lose a total lunatic relief pitcher, one whom had one crazy story after another written about him without having stepped foot on the field in two years.  It’s a shame, really.

    Remember when Burgos was the big part of the Brian Bannister trade? Yeah that worked out real well. I did enjoy his off the field antics as well. Goodbye and Good Riddance

    Well to be fair, Bannister sucks too. We acquired a crazy guy who pitched 23 innings for us in exchange for a fringe starter who isn’t very good. At least this wasn’t as bad as the other trades Omar Minaya made that offseason.
