Season Over

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia will sit out the remainder of the season.  He will undergo surgery in his left foot today.   The injury first occurred in June when Pedroia fouled a ball off his foot.  He attempted a
 to play in August but was then returned to the disabled list.  Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Mets Trade Jeff Francoeur

I'm gonna miss staring at that butt!
That's right we lost Frenchy! :(  Francoeur was traded Tuesday to the Texas Rangers.  During the past couple of weeks Mets fans have been wondering what would happen to the struggling outfielder now that Beltran is back.  (I for one would have much rather see Beltran gone but that's another story). 

In Texas, Francoeur will have place replacing Josh Hamilton.  The Mets in exchange will receive Joaquin Arias a utility infielder.  Francoeur is expected to join the Rangers on Wednesday.
