Brett Boone, A Met
Thanks to Nokes for the heads up, Brett Boone has signed a Minor League contract with the Mets according to WFAN. In my opinion, Matsui is flat out a better option. Not sure if Brett has chance at making the team, whether he is just insurance, or whether Omar just wants to take a shot and see if he can revive his career, but this is basically a non-move. He can field, though not as good as in his prime, but no one expects him to approach twenty homers or any sort of solid offensive numbers anymore. He could be intriguing as a utility guy should he make it that far, but I hope Matsui still gets a fair shot if he is around.
