I think Isiah Thomas has infiltrated the Metropolitans front office. The free agent signing of Jason Bay and the pursuit of backcatcher Benji Molina tells me that Omar Minaya is still searching for the right combination of beisbol players via throwing away money at overvalued free agents.
Keep it simple Omar. Bring in another pitcher. Philly got rid of Lee and acquired Halladay. The rich didn’t get richer, but the contenders went and got pitchers. If the Wilpons got it like that to spend (and they should since the taxpayers paid for their new stadium) they should get us another workhorse arm and a bonafide slugger who is just as respected in his clubhouse.
Other than that we don’t need a team that spends money like their neighbors on the other side of the TriBoro Bridge. We need an organization that knows how to develop a farm system which brings more young talent up from within. Spending money on the front end so that we don’t have to waste our dollars on overpriced mediocre free agents.
Can you do that Omar?
