Nelson Figueroa Likes My Name
Posted by at 11:17 am ET 16 Comments

Nelson Figueroa wasn’t happy with his release by the Mets in April, and by not happy, I mean he hates the Mets as much as every one of us. In a new NY Post article by Fred Kerber, Figgy uses the opportunity to completely rip apart the Mets organization he gave his ‘blood, sweat, tears, heart and soul’ to. It’s short, and it’s wonderful.

    He really stuck it to them last night by throwing BP in the 8th inning.

  • harry’s discarded parliment

    It’s funny that the Mets fans pretty much agree with him…

    @Weems Jeff Francoeur.

    He’s your problem.

  • James Fayleez

    Weems FTW

    Well, thanks a helluva lot for sharing the Phils your appreciation last night, Figgy.

  • Suz

    *showing, not sharing

    I’m still steamed about last night.

  • Lynniemac

    Not that I’m happy with Figueroa’s outing last night, but only losing to the Mets 5-0 instead of 8-0 really wouldn’t have made me feel any better.

    Somewhere around the 6th I made the mistake of thinking ‘this can’t get any worse.’ And then . . . NELSON. There must be a way they can just pretend they’re – like – seeing the sights errr something & just not bring him? Maybe leave him running around somewhere out by LaGuardia? Or give him a ticket to Tibet instead? Or tie him up in red ribbon & leave him in Gayvid Wright’s locker maybe?

    There MUST be a way to dump this load.

  • don

    The cruel way would be to trade him to Houston.

  • Phan Stuck in nyc

    Hahaha – Don, would anybody actually willingly take him, even Houston? I think we should leave him in Gayvid’s locker. They might both wind up thanking us.

  • bigmyc

    What’s interesting is the comments section succeeding the article.

  • Phan Stuck in nyc

    I think Figueroa is STILL playing for the Mets; in his head & on the mound, as he proved last night. Sad.

  • Fat Joe Blanton

    I like Figgy, mostly cuz I think of the cookie when I hear his nick name

  • PhillyCuban

    He plays his role reasonably well, which I appreciate. I was stunned when the Mets cut him. We can cut him too anytime now though to call up Mathieson finally. Wed still have Herndon for the long man and we have some solid options for spot starters. Its not like we missed him when he didnt make an appearance for 3 weeks.

  • Morandini Turned 3

    @#10 — I’m pretty sure Ed Wade traded once for him already…..

  • Watrick

    @Fat Joe-I thought the commercials made it quite obvious! They ARE NOT COOKIES!
