K-Rod Borrows Line From J-Roll
Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez went to the well yesterday, just like Carlos Beltran did last spring.
K-Rod called the Mets the team to beat in the NL East.
“Whatever they did last year, they already got paid,” Rodriguez told the New York Daily News. Whatever they did, I have all the respect in the world. They worked hard and they deserve it. This is a different year and different ballclubs now. I don’t want to make any controversy, but with me and (J.J.) Putz and the additions in the bullpen, I feel like now we are the team to beat.”
Jimmy Rollins should have trademarked the phrase “the team to beat.” He’d be rich … well, richer.
