Bob Klapisch has the story on The Duke pleading with Sr. Skill Sets to give Roger Cedeno his uncondtional release. This would entail eating $10 mil in salary for '04 and '05. I advocated this a month ago to eat the contract and move on. Check out this quote from someone in the Mets front office:
"Roger is a nice guy and everyone likes him personally, but he cannot be on this team," the source said. "There's nothing [the Mets] can do with him. He can't even bunt."
That will be on Cedeno's headstone "He can't even bunt" they could also add "He sucks in the field as well"
