Fiery reliever who had posted 40-save seasons for three different clubs before coming to the Mets, including an impressive 49 saves in 49 opportunities for the 2011 Tigers.  Unfortunately, was ineffective for the Mets and lasted less than two months.  He's pictured here on what I believe to be the most enthusiastic 2006 Fleer card ever produced. Jose appears featuring a couple more energetic poses below.
