Um… was JP a little bitter? Didn’t want to talk about his former gig? Couldn’t mention “his” Blue Jays while he was within earshot? Just a total cone of silence around anything to do with the team he ran for eight years, or however long it was?
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say probably. Because apparently nobody in the Mets front office watched a single fucking Toronto Blue Jays game last year, as Ken Davidoff of Newsday tweets that, in addition to Jon Rauch, the Metropolitans have inked Frank Francisco to a two-year deal, pending a physical.
Another draft pick, baby!
And, OK, Francisco was pretty fucking solid in the second half. I’ll give the Mets that. Still… wow.
So… there’s that.
