Endy Chavez II : The Return?


The Catch
Andy Martino of the NY Daily News reports that one high-ranking team insider says the Mets are open to a second stint in Flushing for the free agent outfielder, and have discussed Chavez — albeit in a very informal and preliminary way — with agent Peter Greenberg.

Although there have not yet been any serious talks or negotiations, Mets brass considers Chavez a fit for the 2012 roster. It remains to be seen whether the sides will agree on Chavez’s value.

The pursuit of a fourth outfielder would not normally be headline-worthy, but Chavez owns a special place in franchise lore: His leaping, snow-cone catch of what seemed a certain Scott Rolen home run in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS kept a classic contest close. Although the Mets lost that series on a Yadier Molina home run and a Carlos Beltran strikeout, Chavez's catch remained one of the most iconic plays in postseason history.

I hope Endy will return to the Ny Mets, he was always a favorite of mine.. - DD
