Overlooking Floyd

Since the end of the season, I have been very distant to the Baseball world. Even so to overlook an obvious outfield possibility for the Mets.

Everyone’s favorite Cliff Floyd will become a free agent at the end of the World Series this season and what better man to bring to the Mets to possibly platoon with Alou in Left Field.

For Chicago this year, Floyd hit .284 and had 9 home runs and 45 runs batted in, in 108 games. Also in the 108 games he didn’t commit one error.

Now, although the Mets and Floyd had already said their goodbyes and parted ways, this might be the perfect time to bring the fan favorite and David Wright’ buddy back to Flushing, for no other reason then his hard nosed playing and leadership on and off the field.

Now the only thing the Cubs can do about this situation is exercise his option, but in the event they don’t and let him walk, Omar should be there like a vulture and pick off of the Cubs’ mistake. After all, that’s exactly what they did to the Mets after they failed to resign Floyd.

Cliff Floyd will always be known as a “Baseball Warrior” in many Met fans’ eyes. For his countless nights where he put himself out on the field with no regard to injuries that occurred through the course of the season. He will always be loved for his dedication and loyalty to the Mets and their fans.

Wherever he winds up next season, the team is going to have an invaluable commodity in Floyd. My only hope is that he will wind up back in a Mets uniform.
