The Mets will roll out their new arms today and tomorrow, as both Francisco Rodriguez (today) and J.J. Putz (tomorrow) will meet the media.
Rodriguez will highlight a list of attendees at the club’s holiday party for local kids. The party will be held at the Citi building in Long Island City.
Other attendees include Mike Pelfrey, John Maine and Jerry Manuel. Pelfrey will play Santa Claus, which, no matter what he looks like, should still prove significantly less bizarre than seeing him dressed in a one-piece swimsuit.
Anyway, K-Rod will hold a press conference around 10:45 a.m. The Q and A will be broadcast live on SNY and WFAN, so you can check it out there. It’ll also be interesting to hear about how Maine’s shoulder feels.
After the holiday party, the Mets won’t be done. Putz will meet with reporters on Thursday at Citi Field. Obviously, he’s made a few comments about pitching the eighth inning, but I’m curious to hear him expound upon what he’s already said. Plus, apparently Putz is an engaging guy, but I don’t think many fans in New York know anything about him.
