Valentin Opens His Mouth About Franco

from Bleed Orange And Blue

Jose Valentin said some interesting words about Julio Franco, who was signed by the Atlanta Braves after being released by the Mets a week ago.
Here is what he said:
“To be a leader for me, it’s not enough to talk all the time,” Jose Valentin said. “You have to go out and do it yourself.”

Although I don't think Jose Valentin should be talking with his .240 average and potential lost job to Ruben Gotay, I am glad somebody mentioned that just because Franco is almost 49 and is a "leader" of the team with his his sub-.200 average doesn't mean the Mets need to keep him.

The Braves can have him.
