Brand spankin' new Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez wasted no time acclimating himself to the Phillies-Mets rivalry.
"Of course, we're going to try to win the division," he said during a conference call today. "Of course, we're going to be the front-runner. Of course, we're going to be the team to beat. I don't want there to be a controversy or the other ballclubs in that division to take it personally or take it in a bad way. If they ask me, 'Oh, which ballclub is going to win the National League East?' It's going to be the Mets. Easy question."
This calls for Jimmy Rollins, right?
