The newly minted NL Cy Young Award winner had a purpose - nope, nothing to do with getting a new contract from the New York Mets. Not a sightseeing trip, either, to marvel at the river boats or waterfall inside the complex.

The knuckleballer did find it a tad bit ironic, however, that when baseball's annual swapfest was last held in this hotel, in 2007, he was in limbo, left off Minnesota's list of protected players and plucked by Seattle in the Rule 5 draft.
