Watch: John Lannan excited for opportunity with Mets

Mets LHP John Lannan told MLB.com that he always wanted to sign with a New York team, since he grew up a Yankees fan going to Chaminade High School on Long Island.

Lannan is expected to compete with Daisuke MatsuzakaJenrry Mejia and others to be the team’s fifth-starter.

In this video, he talks about how he’s excited for getting an opportunity with the Mets:

Lannan is a cream puff. If he makes the team, look for about 95-100 losses this year.

I like Lannan. He does the right thing at the right time because it is the right thing to do, regardless of who is watching.

Boy, Lannan is gonna get ripped by you guys for his "stay positive" comment. The Trolls don't like that.

Am I the only one who thinks those Mr. Met hats are absolutely ridiculous?
