2000 After reacquiring Jesse Orosco from the Orioles in December, the Mets send the veteran left-hander to the Cardinals for utility player Joe McEwing. In 1978, the eventual four-decade hurler (1979-2003) was the player to be named later in the trade when New York dealt veteran southpaw Jerry Koosman to Minnesota.
2011 The Mets make a symbolic, but expensive, roster move when they release their second baseman, Luis Castillo. The embattled 35 year-old infielder, who will be best remembered by New York fans for the dropped popup in a 2009 Subway Series game at Yankee Stadium and his inability to stay healthy, is still owed the remaining $6 million on the four-year, $25 million contract he signed before the 2008 season.
