Francisco Rodriguez 2

K-Rod would like to pitch for the Mets again some day

Milwaukee Brewers closer and former Mets reliever Francisco Rodriguez did not rule out a possible return to his old team, since they tried to sign him two off seasons in a row, he told reporter Marc Carig on Wednesday (Newsday, June 12).

The Mets offered Rodriguez a big-league contract this past winter, according to Carig. Instead, he accepted Milwaukee’s one-year, $3.25 million offer to return to the Brewers.

“I always keep my mind open,” Rodriguez told Carig. “I do really want to have the opportunity once again to come back here.”

Rodriguez has 19 saves and a 2.08 ERA in 30 appearances with the Brewers this season.

In 2010, he was arrested for punching his girlfriend’s father, while in the player’s lounge, following a game in Citi Field.

Yes because everyone is just knocking over each other for the chance to play for a last place team. Where do they get this stuff?

He really wasn't that bad for us. He was just really good at ALMOST losing every game he pitched.

Of course K-Rod would like to pitch once gain for the Mets....When he is completely out of gas.

I would rather sit through a spirited session of root canal and series of coffee enemas than see this guy back with the Mets. I know he's enjoying a late-career renaissance but what kind of message would that signing send? Plus we wouldn't be able to laugh at those funny glasses anymore.

I'd like to pitch for the Mets one day, too.  And I'm 50, but I don't have a reputation for hitting old men.

All he wanted was 3.25 million?  Wilpon probably thought he would sign for $3.25

The Mets should have signed him. Big mistake.

The guy was decent here. I miss when we used to sign real relievers instead of retreads

He is pitching so well lately why would he want to go and destroy his career like that?
