His Man-Crush Is Here

By / February 14, 2009 / Hot Stove

It did not even take a week since I said “trust management” before management did something that I deem stupid.

Ken Rosenthal on FoxSports.com reports the Mets have signed Livan Hernandez. The deal is for a minor league deal worth $1 million, but also includes $1 million in incentives.

This was a pointless move. With Tim Redding, Freddy Garcia and Jonathan Niese battling it out for the fifth spot, I have to ask: WHY????

It is no secret that Omar Minaya has had the biggest man crush on Hernandez and Manny Ramirez. Oi vey! Even I would say Ramirez would’ve been a better idea than a man who ended the season 13-11 with a 6.05 ERA.

Want some more proof this was a moronic move?

In 180 innings, he allowed 257 hits, 129 runs, 25 bombs, and 121 earned runs.

Is that enough? I think so. This must have been done on Phony Bernazard’s recommendation.

Just another pointless signing.

Why is Omar signing this guy ? This is not 1997 it’s 2009. The only thing this guy is good for is he’s an innings eater. It also looks like that’s not all he eats..lol. But my goodness can Omar take that money he’s spending on guys like Hernandez and put it to use on guys we could really use like Orlando Hudson..who’s price is dropping as i write this. Is this asking for a lot please tell me?!
