Francisco Rodriguez already proclaimed the Mets the “team to beat” when the Mets first acquired him. But on Saturday, he wanted to make sure everybody heard.
“Whatever [the Phillies] did last year, they already got paid. Whatever they did, I have all the respect in the world. They worked hard and they deserve it. This is a different year and different ballclubs now. I don’t want to make any controversy, but with me and [J.J.] Putz and the additions in the bullpen, I feel like now we are the team to beat.”
