Reassurance from Jon Rauch

– Jon Rauch, to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com

The Mets should put that quote on promotional material. It reads as if Rauch is trying so hard to be positive, but the use of the third-person plural “they’re” instead of the first-person “we’re,” and that he felt the need to thrown an “honestly” in there, probably betrays his real feelings.

    Heck, let’s sign Edwin Jackson too. We could end up getting Colby Rasmus
