GET K-ROD AND DON’T STOP THERE

So the Mets Gang of Four (Omar, John Rico, Tony B and their mascot Jeffey Skill Sets, hell he provided the transportation flying the Gang of Four on Skill Set One so he gets to hang around with the big boys plus he has the check book) hit the ground running in Vegas and wasted no time at all grabbing Francisco Rodriguez and his agent and squired them to a local steak house to talk turkey.  I love the approach Omar is taking it’s quite the opposite of how Freddy and Jeffey graveled at the feet of Titan Tom Glavine pleading with him to join the Mets by throwing Mets Money at him until he said yes. Have I told I despise Tom Glavine? Anyway, Omar and his lieutenants according to Joe DeMayo of NY Baseball Digest have made an offer to Rodriguez of 3yr/$36 mil with an option on 4th year that could push the deal to $48mil. Word is Rodriquez wants to be a Met and Omar wants him as the Mets closer so this deal should not be to difficult to close (get it close the deal K-Rod closes games)

 

Other deal that may come down will be Aaron Heilman to the Rockies for Huston Street as word there is Heilman is coveted by Colorado to go right into their rotation and the Mets want Street to fit the 8th inning bridge to K-Rod.

 

If both these deals come off if I’m the Mets GM I still keep an eye on Brain Fuentes as he could fall into there lap where the Mets could sign him for the 8th inning and let Street pitched the 7th or use both as a lefty/righty punch in the late innings. If all the rhetoric we have heard out of Mets camp is that the bullpen is a priority and we all know that two NL East pennants went down the drain mostly due to the inept bullpen now you have a chance by spend some money and trading a guy you have no use for to bolster three spots in your pen you have to do it

  1. In 05 Willie mismanaged the pitching staff AND lineup(remember making Wright earn his “Chops”), and in 07 he kept running MOTA out there-but Omar is the one who gave him the crappy pen so I dont put it all on Willie- Had we hit a bit better the last week of 07 and 08, well…..
