LOOK AT LIKE THIS OMIR, IT DOESN’T SNOW THAT MUCH IN BUFFALO IN APRIL

Poor Omir Santos, the guy shows up early to camp looks around at the large stable of catchers the Mets accumulated over the winter and thinks to himself  “none of those guys have anything on me”  Well sorry to burst your bubble Senior Santos but the only squating behind the plate you’re going to be doing is in the International League backing up Josh Thole.

The Mets reach a deal with Rod Barajas for a base of $1mil with incentives that could double his contract.  Barajas and Henry Blanco are now the top battery mates for Mets pitchers and both are a huge upgrade defensively from last years broken down model of Brian Schneider, ShrekNinja Turtle and Santos.

Remember at the end of the season J-Man and Old School Warthen put alot of the blame of the inability of the Mets pitchers to cut down on walks and not hit their spots consistently on the catching corp.

Give the Mets some love here as the got Barajas for their price and upgraded the catching position as well

  1. After having cornered the market on Catchers, the Mets are in a position to make some Spring Training BOGO deals. Trade with us and we’ll throw in a Catcher with every deal.

    You are forgetting the statement of the great Ed Kranepool himself who said he didn’t like playing minor league ball in Buffalo because it had only two seasons: winter and Fourth of July.

    As usual, Steady Eddie is on the mark.
