RH reliever Vic Black said in a note posted on Twitter that his time with the Mets is over, but thanked the fans and the city of New York for the experience (Feb. 2).
"I didn't play for 10 years nor was I an All-star or contributor to last seasons amazing run BUT I'll never forget my time playing for the greatest fans/city in baseball," Black wrote. "From walking the streets of Manhattan, to riding the 7 Line daily to Citi Field I was given moments I'll remember for my lifetime."
