Did we get Cespedes? Tomas? An impact bat? NOPE!
The Mets have signed 27-year-old, free-agent Cuban catcher Lednier Ricardo, according to ESPN’s Adam Rubin.
Ricardo hit .256 with with 26 home runs and 136 RBI in 1,190 at-bats during the Cuban National Series from 2007 through 2012.
Well, his numbers are pretty shitty, but still a vast improvement over Recker. I’ll take it. I’ll take anything.
In the offseason, I was screaming and crying for Tomas, or for Kang the Korean. They’re both all-stars. HAR HAR HAR. Nice move, Mets.
