I think Iâ€™ve given up on trying to figure out the ways and means of Omar Minaya. I see where he has signed Livan Hernandez and even though itâ€™s a minor league deal and in order to cash in he has to make the team, I still donâ€™t get it. Wouldnâ€™t that money be spent on something the Mets need like a lefty reliever? I donâ€™t know how much Will Ohman is looking for but it canâ€™t more than the $1 mil they Mets set aside for Hernandez, by the way if Ohman is looking for more than that he needs to wake up and smell the disinterest from the other 29 teams in baseball for his services.
The Warlord is in camp and dropped a bombshell that he is thinking of using Gimp Castillo in the 1 hole and dropping Jose Reyes to the 3 hole, in order to get Gimpâ€™s bat going. I got to think Jose, Jose, Jose will be not be pleased with this.
Freddy Garcia had some bold words about gaining a spot in the starting rotation. If heâ€™s as healthy as he says and can walk the walk his signing could be a huge coup for Omar and the Mets as a healthy and effective Chief is ace material.
