NY Times: Feliciano Is Returning to the Mets

Rarely in the history of the interborough rivalry has one player caused such consternation on both sides of the divide, and it is one small case in which the Mets actually emerged as victors.

For the Yankees, Feliciano represents a waste of money, time and effort. He even irritated some teammates with his loud sound system in the spring training clubhouse in Tampa, Fla., in 2011. Once he became a free agent after the 2012 season, the Yankees never made an offer to re-sign him, even to a minor league deal.

“He got hurt, and we never saw him,” Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman said Monday. “Unfortunately, it happens sometimes in this business.”

The Yankees lose the ace of their flat ground pitching staff.

I’m sure Pineda is ready to step up to the No. 1 spot. He’s had a year to mature.

Unfortunately, he spent that year getting drunk and driving.

Next thing you know they’ll move Pineda to the pen.

.128 BAC shouldn’t make you speed and weave without your headlights on at night, unless you already have reckess tendencies.

Feliciano didn’t even light our fire

Free agent reliever Kyle Farnsworth is close to picking a new team,’s Jerry Crasnick reports (on Twitter).  Oh please let it be us.

Phew. I was afraid he’d end up in Toronto and pitch effectively.

I’m not a Cashman basher, but that was a wretched signing.

Feliciano did a great job singing God Bless America at the stadium a couple years ago at least… oh, wait…


Fear not, Yankees will soon sign someone like Rafael Perez to a 3 year deal worth 9 millions or so, and he will promptly go to the DL when he will wake up one day with dislocated toes. After a while he will take over the mantle of flat ground ace from Marte and Feliciano in a special ceremony in Tampa.
