Closeout sale on former Mets' outfielders

0 Comments

The Astros have signed Cory Sullivan and the Blue Jays signed Jeremy Reed yesterday, both to minor league deals.  Both Sullivan and Reed played in the Mets’ nightmarish outfield mix last year.

Sullivan once hit two triples in one inning.  It was the first time anyone had done that in over 50 years. In 2007 he lost the Rockies’ starting centerfield job to Willy Tavares, which has to be somewhat humbling.  For his part, Reed was the minor league player of the year in 2003 and was a thrown-in on the J.J. Putz trade. He was also born in San Dimas, California, a city whose name I cannot read without thinking of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.”
