According to SNY, the Mets have signed outfielder/infielder, Jose Valentin to a minor league deal. He can make up to $800,000 should he make the major league team.
Why did the do this? I have no idea. The Mets already have Alex Cora as a backup infielder. They have Nick Evans who can play the infield.
Some would say it is because he is a good leader in the clubhouse.
HOGWASH! They have enough leaders. Pay someone who can actually do something for the club, like getting a championship for the team and their fans.
I have said it once and I will say it again. I am sick of this organization stockpiling old men who should be in the baseball graveyard at this point in their career.
Let’s get it together, Omar Minaya. For all the money that you are spending placing guys in the minors, you could have invested that money in a right-handed bat. Think about that before you stick the minors with another man to call “Grandpa”.
