MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that the Mets put Gary Sheffield and Pedro Feliciano through waivers but both were claimed by team(s). Apparently, the Mets were unable to work out a suitable trade for the players and decided to pull them back. Both players will have to remain with the Mets for the rest of the season.

That’s bad news for Gary Sheffield that’s starting to see diminishing playing time as he doesn’t figure into the Mets plans for 2010. I’m sure that he would’ve loved to go to an American League team in the playoff race despite his comments about wanting to stay with the Mets.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
