Baldelli: Relieved at beating Sox. Future Met?

Rays outfielder Rocco Baldelli, who is from Rhode Island, on beating the Red Sox in the ALCS: “This might sound funny to everyone, but I don’t want to go home and have to see every single person that I know rub it in my face every single day for the rest of my life. And that would happen [if we lost]. I’m 100 percent serious. To beat those guys and not have to listen to everyone where I live, it’s a nice feeling.”

Baldelli will be a free-agent after the World Series and would fit in nicely in the Mets’ outfield.

    OK, I agree with you. I’m sure that Rocco would be very happy with the Mets – close to ‘home’ and that the Mets would be glad to have a player like him.
