To Boo Or Not To Boo, Is That The Question? »
Mets, Mr. North Jersey, Real Dirty Mets Blog
The NY Post is reporting that according to an ESPN Insider article the Phillies have an interest in Figueroa.

Figueroa a Phillie, Oh no!
Unrelated, I’m sure you’re all such avid sports fans that you’ve all seen it many times but I’m going to link to Mark Buerhle and Paul Konerko’s defensive play of the year from yesterday anyway so we can all enjoy it again.

I didn’t get to see that thanks Grave. That is a play for the ages I don’t recall a pitcher ever doing that. Awesome.
4/6/2010-12:18pm at 12:18 pm (UTC -4)
did you see McLouth’s fake catch DP? screwed the Cubs.
4/6/2010-12:22pm at 12:22 pm (UTC -4)
Yes, he’s an early favorite for Best Supporting Actor for that performance.
4/6/2010-12:23pm at 12:23 pm (UTC -4)
I saw that last night. Amazing.
4/6/2010-12:48pm at 12:48 pm (UTC -4)
Play of the year on day one…its going to be tough to top that.

Figueroa to the Phillies must show how desperate the Phillies are for bullpen help right?
4/6/2010-12:16pm at 12:16 pm (UTC -4)
Or thinking, it worked with Pedro.
4/6/2010-12:19pm at 12:19 pm (UTC -4)
I can’t hope Figueroa does well if he pitches for the phillies. I would be lying if I did.
Or maybe with Blanton on the DL the rotation? I don’t know. Does Matt Smith have anything on his blog?
4/6/2010-12:24pm at 12:24 pm (UTC -4)
That was my thought exactly when we made the roster cuts and Figgy didn’t make it. It was only a couple of days after Blanton went on the DL and Phillies were reported to be ‘looking for pitching’.
4/6/2010-12:41pm at 12:41 pm (UTC -4)
Not worried in the slightest. Figgy sucks. Enjoy that, Philly.
4/6/2010-12:56pm at 12:56 pm (UTC -4)
True enough, but rest assured, if we have to ace him, he’ll spin a gem against the Mets.
4/6/2010-1:13pm at 1:13 pm (UTC -4)
Nah, he only pitches gems against bad teams. I’m not worried.

Figs = his years chan ho park lol
4/6/2010-2:02pm at 2:02 pm (UTC -4)
I don’t get it….
Oh nevermind.. this year’s chan ho park
4/6/2010-1:01pm at 1:01 pm (UTC -4)
Can Omar trade Figgy & Jerry for Charlie?
4/6/2010-1:04pm at 1:04 pm (UTC -4)
Dang….whose idea was it to start the season and have an off day the next day?
Yesterday was almost a perfect opening day – weather an all – was looking forward to a Met game today. ‘Almost’ perfect because of missing Reyes, Beltran and Murph.
At least I’ve got the MLB extra innings free this week to catch a game tonight.
4/6/2010-1:19pm at 1:19 pm (UTC -4)
Well, there’s a local game on. At least provides a negative rooting interest.

4/6/2010-1:07pm at 1:07 pm (UTC -4)
this was in the philly paper too. They also explored Redding at one point. Talk about desperate.
Actually, Figgy pitched for the Phillies before he joined the mets (among his other pit stops).
4/6/2010-2:00pm at 2:00 pm (UTC -4)
Has Figgy cleared the waivers? Or since he’s not going to AAA, does he become a FA right away?
4/6/2010-2:06pm at 2:06 pm (UTC -4)
I don’t know the precise time of day it occurs but I do know that Nelson’s waiver period expires tomorrow. So sometime tomorrow we should have official word on whether he cleared or was claimed.
4/6/2010-2:12pm at 2:12 pm (UTC -4)
Not sure if you can answer this for me, but how does the waivers system work? Is this like a fantasy baseball where you are given a waiver priority number based on last year’s record? Or is it whoever bids the top $$ gets to claim a player?
4/6/2010-2:24pm at 2:24 pm (UTC -4)
I don’t know this for a fact but based on lots of reading I’ve done about waivers it works like this:
The waiver period lasts 72 hours (only including business days so Sat & Sun don’t count);
If no one claims the player then the player is either assigned to the minor leagues or released, assignment to the minors is mandatory the first time a player is waived by a team, any subsequent times the player can refuse that minor league assignment and become a free agent (like Figgy can because the Mets have waived him before);
If one team claims the player they get him;
If more than one team claims the player, priority is established based on similar league and won-loss record (since the Mets are in the NL, NL teams get “first dibs” on Figgy, so if the NL team with the best record and the AL team with the worst record both claimed Figgy, the NL team would get him);
At some period of time which I’m not clear on (I have seen 40 games from one source) the won-loss records involved in the process switch from the previous season to the current one, therefore I’m reasonably certain any claim on Figgy would be based on 2009 won-loss records).
That’s all “to the best of my knowledge” so please don’t settle any bets based on this

Thanks! I will come looking for you if I lose a bet based on this comment.
