Feliciano Finally Being Considered for Eighth Inning Role...IT'S ABOUT TIME!

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, it seems as though someone in the Mets organization finally gets it.  It seems like there is a new entry in the set-up man sweepstakes for the Mets, and it's Pedro Feliciano.  I couldn't be happier about this idea, as I've been talking about this for quite some time.  In fact, I wrote about it here, here, here, here and touched on it slightly here...I think you get the point.

The knock on Feliciano seems to be his percieved lack of ability to ONLY get lefties out, but that's not true.  Granted Feliciano gets out lefties at a higher rate, that's because he's just awesome against lefties, and when you're percieved as a lefty specialist you don't exactly get the opportunities to prove yourself otherwise. Last season lefties hit .215 against Feliciano while righties hit .264.  Although the .264 isn't great it still should be good enough to ge the job done.

I'm loving this...
