Our old friend Chris Coste is joining the rivals to the north. Coste has reportedly signed a one-year deal according to Jeff Kolpak of the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead in North Dakota.
The report says that the Mets have given him a spot on the 40-man roster, but have made no guarantees about being on the opening day 25-man list.
Have to say, this one stings a bit. Coste was one of those guys you’ll always admire as a Phillies fan, but going to the Mets is a tough pill to swallow. Anyway, best of luck to Coste next season.
