*Cut* *Save For Later*

And just like that he's back!  The Mets signed Mike Nickeas to a minor league deal and invited him to Major League Spring Training.

As for everything I said yesterday, I'll just save it for later I guess.  The longer it's saved the better.

As for bringing him back, I think it is a good move for the Mets.  He will be at Spring Training where he was so helpful this year with the other catchers and players this year.  He will also be in Las Vegas working with some of the best arms in the system.  Zack Wheeler, Darin Gorski, and Collin McHugh will all log innings there and the Mets have always shown they trust Mike with their best arms.

Mike has always seemed like a natural leader and a great teacher.  He is going to make an amazing coach when he's done playing.  Maybe the best part of this move is that he gets to play and teach at the same time.  If there was ever a player destined to be a manager one day, it's him.

Obviously I am beyond happy he is back.  He has always helped this organization even when he hasn't been on the Major League field.

Let's Go Mets!
