Yo! Alejandro (De Aza), We Hardly Knew Ye!

According to multiple reports, former Red Sox outfielder Alejandro De Aza is close to being signed by The New York Metropolitans. De Aza had a little more than cup of coffee with The Carmine Hose in 2015—maybe more like a large Dunkin' Donuts Frozen Mocha Coffee Coolatta (with whipped cream). The soon-to-be 32-year-old played in 60 games for Boston, hitting a more than respectable .292 with 4 HRs and 24 RBIs. He complied a .347 OBP and an .831 OPS. Not bad for a fourth/fifth outfielder. He came to the Red Sox in a trade with the Orioles in exchange for the immortal Joe Gunkel. He was then traded by us to the Giants for the equally immortal Luis Ysla. We wish Alejandro the best of luck in Flushing!
