MEMO TO OMAR MINAYA – Your Mission Is To Sign Doc Holliday

As some of you might know I am a pained Met fan. Yes one of those guys that before last year so his teams hopes dashed away at the hands of the Florida Marlins. Last year…well, I didn’t even see the end because I gave up on the team I believe it was in June. when Luis Castillo dropped his easy pop fly against the Yankees! Now I know last year was a nightmare and mostly due to all of the injuries that the team had. To me no excuse, injuries happen. But the main problem for the team was pitching. Lets be honest, after Johan Santana, the Mets had no one! They should have gotten Pedro last year but Minaya did not want to listen to the fans or the critics. What did Pedro do? Make it all the way to the World Series with the Phillies and he looked pretty damn good doing it to! To be honest the Phillies went to the World Series with their heavy hitting team and lost to the Yankees only because after Cliff Lee, they didn’t have a pitcher either.
Do you see a pattern here? If you have 2 quality studs, like the Yankees did (Sabathia and Burnett) you have a legitimate shot at a quality post season run.
So I woke up this morning for some reason hell bent with the desire to reach out to Omar Minaya (as if I could???), your mission my friend and it might help to save your job is to sign Roy Halladay now! Who knows if any of the rest of the banged up crew on the Mets will come back and have a healthy year this year. And who knows if David Wright will ever top 10 HRs a season again (talk about fantasy flops!). But if you have 2 quality starters, you’ve improved your team considerably already! As of right now, the Phillies still only have one quality starter. Common sense tells you that if you have quality starters, that you are at least better than the Phillies on the pitching side. And we’ve seen Halladay pitch in the American League, bring him to pitcher friendly Citi Field and I can honestly say you are looking at an easy 20 game winner!

The stage is set again like it was for Santana 2 years ago. The Red Sox and the Yankees may not want to give up enough to get Halladay. Now is the time for Minaya and the mets to swoop in and steal Halladay. This is a move Minaya has to make before the fans start making their move away from Citi Field. Last year they were lucky to sell seats since it was its inaugural year. Without Halladay it may be a ghost town at “Taxpayer field”! Yes there are other moves that he has to make at well but none are as vital to the team’s success in 2010 as this one is.
Imagine the Mets rotation going 1, 2 in this order…
Someone forward this to Omar Minaya please!!
Play Ball America!
