Rebuilding the Mets, part one: setup man.

We saw that term in a newspaper article, "setup man." Who has been set up? The Mets, in paying $3 million for a 30-year-old reliever, or Mr. Ryota, who is disembarking the successful Yakult Swallows in the Japanese Central League for a team that can best be described as rudderless?
In a semi-related development, Putz is gone. He may have been bad luck for our team. Anyway, our Metropolitans signed a two-year contract with this fellow, who was 47-29 with a 3.25 ERA and 54 saves over 11 seasons in Japan. So. Hope springs eternal.
