I would love to be back. I mean, there is a part of me that believes that it is the right thing to do to stay loyal to the team that gave you your shot. At the same time, at the age that I am, I want to win. … I would like to know that the team is going in the right direction and I think we have some pieces that are really good, so hopefully we will be able to work something out in the offseason. But, I love New York and the fans and have had a great time being a Met.
