Well I've very relieved that this deal happened. Not that I thought Wright was leaving town anytime soon, but with the Mets you never know until the deal is inked. It's a great deal for both sides and David Wright will end up going down as perhaps the best Met of all time now. Hopefully we can get RA under contract and keep developing the young guns until things turn around for the organization.
When farm systems are rated, they are rated as a snapshot at that particular moment of time.
Of course, but down the road it is often revealed that the subjective analysis and rating was not accurate. Regardless of how it was rated, if years later it proves to have been better than it was perceived, the reality is that the perception was false.
Baseball Maverick: How Sandy Alderson Revolutionized Baseball and Revived the Mets
You do now that Omar is working in the Padres front office right?
The other day when I stopped in the San Diego office he asked me if I wanted more coffee and or a magizine. He looks good as a receptionist.
i think he is more than a receptionist, fact is he had many job offers from around baseball when he was fired. He obviously has talents that help an organization, you can say he is not a good fit to be a GM and that is fair, but he did many other things well even as a GM that helped this team and again all I have to say is look t the Mets staff right now and you will see that all 5 guys were brought in by Minaya, their best reliever is a Minaya guy as well.
