#698) MANNY AYBAR
Manny Aybar was signed by the New York Mets as a free agent on December 28, 2004. He made his Mets' debut on Opening Day—April 4, 2005 in Cincinnati. Manny would make 22 appearances, all in relief, during that season. The Mets added Danny Graves, and designated Aybar for assignment to make room on the roster for the former Reds' closer. The right-hander finished the season with Triple-A Norfolk and was granted free agency on October 5, 2008.
Manny Aybar signed his card for my friend, John Guzman during one of his trips to the Dominican Republic on September 29, 2009.
