Shingo signs with Mets

Shingo Takatsu wanted to explore his other major league options before he accepted an assignment to the minor leagues. Well that's exactly what he did today. Takatsu signed a minor league contract with the triple-A farm club of the New York Mets.

"It's going to be a 2½-week tryout," Takatsu's agent, Joe Urbon, told the Post.

Teams must set their playoff rosters by the end of August.

Playoffs?!

I hope Shingo knows how to play the outfield.
