Mets infielder Jose Valentin decided to shut his season down for 2008. He’s been playing at Triple-A New Orleans but has been hampered by neck, ankle, and elbow injuries this season. He has said that he wants to give it another shot next year but there are reports that the Mets expect him to retire.
Don’t be surprised to see Valentin coaching somewhere in the Mets organization next season. He’s held in very high regard by the Mets front office and is projected as having big league coaching and managing ability.
