This would certainly qualify as one.
- The Mets plan to make an offer to Martinez "shortly," a baseball official said last night. Minaya dined with Martinez in the Dominican Republic on Thanksgiving night.
"All I can say is I'm not going to comment on what we do, what we're thinking," Minaya said yesterday. "I would be at a disadvantage if I were to comment."
He's the type of guy that would love to pitch in Shea's cavernous park and in the NL to make his once guady numbers gaudy again. Will he actually come here? Doubtful, but Omar is certainly keeping us Met fans entertained this off season so far.
Omar is too busy looking at Sosa and Pedro and guys like Sexson and Clement who could help the team are probably going to just slip through. Sometimes I wonder if Omar is looking too big for all the wrong reasons. If you really want to make a splash, none is bigger than Beltran. So if you want to wow us, do that. If not, do the sensible thing and upgrade the team with more affordable options that fit the team better.
