Meet The Mess

When Omar Minaya took over the day to day operations as Mets General Manager, he promised that his remake of “Los Mets” would deliver a championship. What happened instead? 3 straight division collapses, two lost seasons, a shady firing of Willie Randolph, massive injuries, the devaluing of their major Dominican baseball pipeline and the arrest of their star closer.

Minaya self-celebrated himself as the “first” “Latino” GM in baseball (whatever that means), but the first doesn’t mean the best. Phillies GM Ruben Amaro is Latino also; but unlike Minaya, Amaro built his team with the BEST AVAILABLE players not just ones with Iberian sir-names.

And BTW: Amaros’ Philadelphia Phillies have won the NL East each of the last 3 years.

And they are about to clinch it again this weekend in Philly; against guess who? The New York Mets.

Hows that for a legacy Omar?
