Could Fuentes signing be a bad sign for the Mets?

The Angels signed Brian Fuentes to a 2 year, $17.5 million dollar deal and I think the question has to be asked: why didn’t they just bring back K-Rod?  The average annual value on the deal K-Rod signed with the Mets isn’t that much greater.  K-Rod is younger and a known quantity.

And that’s exactly why if I’m a Mets fan, I’m leery.  The Angels obviously knew what they had in K-Rod and didn’t want him.  Are they concerned about him holding up physically?

This is of course pure speculation, but it’s certainly possible that Omar Minaya had similar concerns when he decided to also acquire JJ Putz.
