The Zionist Conspiracy
Wednesday, May 05, 2004
Grant Roberts, who is 26, makes about $300,000, very little for a major league pitcher, and when healthy, was one of the Mets' more effective relief pitchers over the last couple of seasons. While his failure to stay healthy has been frustrating, on a rebuilding team it made sense to give him a chance to finally prove his value.
Instead of doing that, after just four poor relief appearances, the Mets have placed Roberts on assignment, meaning that they must imminently trade or release him.
This is obviously great news for Roberts, as Mets rejects routinely promptly flourish with their new teams upon being discarded by the Mets.
