Over the past years, the New York Mets have revitalized many careers, like Renè Rivers and James Loney last year. Seeing the success of the storybook ending events of both of them coming out of nowhere, and helping the Mets make the postseason, when at a point in time it was questioned to whether they could even come close to the wild card. Im sorry if we’re giving contracts to Tim Tebow (I love you) let’s consider Gagne lol.
Although Gagne has not thrown an inning of pro ball in 4 years, he shows that he has stuff left in the tank for Team Canada, throwing over 94mph with authority.
The Mets need one more started reliever, pending how long Familias suspension will last, everyone moves up in the ranks, and some may not be ready to be a big 7th inning or 8th inning specialist, Gagne brings a veteran mentality, while also filling the old veteran void, presented by Bartolo Colon over the past years.
It is reported that 5 teams have asked to see him pitch, I would not be surprised if the Mets were one of them, it would be fun to watch, and the Mets can find small ways to upgrade their already deep franchise.
It will definitely be an interesting year for baseball, so stay up to date on anything sports or media related from PPF Daily. Gucci Suave out.
