Former Mets in the playoffs

Just thought it might be interesting to see what former Mets made the playoff rosters on their current teams.  The Rays were the only club that didn't have an active former Met in this round of the playoffs.  This doesn't include players on the 40man or others who contributed during the year...


J.J. Putz- Our former injured set-up man came back as Arizona's closer
               posting 45 saves 2.17 ERA

Henry Blanco- He hit .215 in 55 games for us last season and .250 in 
                       37 games this year.


Francisco Rodriguez- Since being traded setting up in 31 games he's
                                  posted a 1.86 ERA

Carlos Gomez- Well at least he's healthy, compared to FMart who we kept in the Santana trade Cargo    
                         is only hitting .225 in 231ABs, 94 games.


Brian Schneider- In his second season with Philly his BA dipped even further to .176

Wilson Valdez- Defensive replacement hit .249 in 99 games.

St. Louis-

Octavio Dotel- 3.28 ERA in 29 games with 2 saves since coming over from the Jays.


Luis Ayala- Failed as our closer and out of baseball since 2009, posted a 2.09 ERA in 52 games for Yanks.

Freddy Garcia- 12-8 with 3.62 ERA in 25 starts for Yanks, never pitched for us after not making the team 
                         out of Spring training asked out of AAA.


Omir Santos- late call-up made it into 11 games where he hit .227, not sure if he made the roster but he's
                     showing up on it.


Mike Adams- Never pitched for the Mets was traded to us in 2006 for the late Geremi Gonzalez but was
                      claimed off waivers. Since being traded from the Pads 2.10 ERA in 27 games, 1 save.

Darrin Oliver- Hard to believe we never did find another long reliever while Oliver keeps chugging along this
                      year he has a 2.29 ERa in 62 games.

Endy Chavez- I thought Endy was a defensive replacement in 83 games he hit  .301 this season.
