    Omar is back in NY

    Mets To Sign Omar Quintanilla
    By Zach Links [January 3 at 4:07pm CST]

    The Mets are set to sign infielder Omar Quintanilla to a minor league deal with a spring training invite, a baseball source told Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com. The MVP Sports Group client spent the first half of 2012 with the Mets before he was traded to the Orioles in July for cash considerations.

    In 65 total games for Baltimore and New York, Quintanilla hit .243/.312/.361 with four homers. The Mets traded the 31-year-old after they were forced to designate him for assignment to create roster space for Jason Bay. Rubin writes that the Mets didn't want to trade Quintanilla but felt compelled to since he would have been claimed off of waivers otherwise.

    Quintanilla will vie with Brandon Hicks for a backup middle infield role out of spring training, but Hicks may have a leg up since he is on the 40-man and the Mets gave the A's cash for him in late November. The Mets have yet to sign a free agent to a major league deal.
    Solid depth move. He played well for us.

    Yep, good move. I like him better than Brandon Hicks.

    ?

    Just a little joke. I've made jokes like that all last year, just because his name sounded like Omar Mantequilla (which means butter in Spanish). Honestly sorry if I did something wrong or offensive.

    None taken. I know you make jokes like that so I know not to think much of it. I was just coming off reading some threads in the MLB and NBA forum and my god, I can't believe some people are so ignorant and insensitive. Just rather not see any of that in the Mets forum, and thankfully its pretty rare. We have some good fans.

    Like Omar being here would make things worse? Omar knows how to work with a minor league payroll, see his Montreal days.
