Pedro Feliciano, We Hardly Knew Ye

It looks like Pedro's desire for revenge against Dan Warthen will have to come next year, because his MRI came back and it doesn't look good.  This statement from Joe yesterday paints a pretty grim picture: 

“He’s got a damaged shoulder.... The MRI did not come back good. He has a damaged shoulder. He has a shoulder injury. In fairness to the player, he needs to talk about it with our doctors and the agents and decide what the next course of action is.”

If that statement doesn't scream "SEASON ENDING SHOULDER SURGERY!!!!!!" then I don't know what does.  I can't really hold it against Feliciano, since it wasn't his call to be run into the ground over the last 3 years by the Mets, but his final stats for the season don't exactly live up to the 2-year, $8 million deal the Yankees signed him to.

0 APP, 0 IP, $3.75 mil/hold, $3.75 mil/appearance, $3.75 mil/inning, $3.75 mil/pitch thrown.

So long, Pedro.  It's a shame we didn't get to see you perform in the pinstripes.  Maybe you and your shredded shoulder will be back next year.  Then again, maybe not.
