I just don't understand this guy. The headline to his latest article is "Minaya's Off-Season Enhances his rep".
All he has done, as the article states, is re-signed Glavine for less than Gil Meche, re-signed Jose Valentine, and signed Moises Alou.
Then he comments on passing on Zito at his high price. Was is not Perry and Rosenthal the one that stated how Zito was a perfect fit for the Mets? What has changed?
It is a given that the Mets have more talent than any other team in the putrid NL East. But I hard see how re-signing a couple of old players and signing a creaky outfielder with limited defensive skills would enhance Minaya's reputation. Consider me confused.
