Takahashi would close

During today's game the booth was discussing Takahashi's situation. It was once again noted that Taki still feels he 's a starter but that in the majors he struggles the second/third time through the order.

What was new was that Taki had told them he enjoyed closing, coming in with the game on the line and that if the Mets asked him to return as their closer he would.

The Mets have an exclusive window to negotiate with Takihashi but I'm not sure if the front office or K-Rod will be settled by then. I don't think any team would sign him to start but i hope the Mets can bring him back in the pen...
