Former MLB IF Edgardo Alfonzo is playing winter ball in Venezuela with the hopes of being signed by a major league club, preferably the New York Mets, according to Kevin Kernan of the New York Post. Alfonzo last played in the big leagues with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in 2006 and spent last year with the Yomiuri Giants of the Japanese League. He feels that he can play two or three more years as a utility player. "My dream is to retire with the Mets colors," Alfonzo said. "That's my dream. That's what I'm praying for, maybe it will happen, maybe not, but dreams sometimes come true, you know."
