But not the elected official, Assemblyman Michael DenDekker. We’re talking about former Mets outfielder Matt den Dekker.
The trade served a purpose for both teams: the Mets got a needed lefty out of the bullpen and Washington added depth to their outfield.
We say goodnight and good luck to den Dekker with the Nationals. DenDekker the politician will stay in Albany, but we wonder if there would ever be two den Dekkers in Washington.
