Damn. I was looking forward to seeing him help turn the franchise around since the front office obviously can't.

Is he a free agent? I thought if he cleared waivers he would remain a Met but not be on the 40 man roster?

Didn't think about that. I should have read more closely. Yeah if he cleared waivers he's still in the organization he's just not on the 40-man roster.

Im a mets fan and was excited about us getting Havens just like I was excited about the Jets getting Antonio Allen, but Havens is perpetually injured, I don't think he has a future playing anywhere in baseball

Great kid and family, grew up down the street from him... but yes, seems that the injury bug will not go away.

Tanner said back when the stadium was first built that Havens got the first BP session and the first HR. Tanner promised Reese when he recruited him that he'd play in a new stadium before he left Carolina. Tanner couldn't control all the delays so he did the best he could to fulfill the promise. Was a pretty cool story that Tanner told back when the stadium was first built.

I wish I could find a link. May have been something told on air.

The way I wrote that may have been confusing. The story was told when the stadium was built but this took place before it was done. I'm pretty sure there was no grass and there may not have been even much concrete poured at the time.
