Could there be a K-Rod/Mets Re-union???


According to the Sporting News, Francisco Rodriguez may find himself welcomed back in Queens this offseason.

A day after the Mets' former closer said he'd be willing to return to New York, a club official told ESPNNewYork.com that it would consider re-signing Rodriguez as a free agent.

Francisco Rodriguez may have one unlikely suitor this offseason: the Mets.

"We haven't ruled anything out," the official told the website Monday. "We need a closer. It is a long way down the road. We haven't had those meetings yet. But, for us, I wouldn't rule anything out."

The Mets traded Rodriguez to the Milwaukee Brewers last July in a money-saving move. Rodriguez could have earned $17.5 million next season if his 2012 option had vested. Rodriguez agreed to drop the option after joining the Brewers to so he could test the market this winter and ensure he'll be a closer again.

On Sunday, Rodriguez told reporters that he had no hard feelings toward the Mets and would consider coming back to the club. Rodriguez, 29, was the team’s closer for 2 1/2 seasons.
