… Omar Minaya has lost his mind.
So Gary Matthews Jr. is a Met (for the 2nd time by the way) in a trade involving RHP Brian Stokes.
The Angels will pay $21.5 of the $23.5 million left on the remaining 2 yrs of Matthews contract.
So my main question here is… WHY?
Paying 2 million for a lousy ballplayer who had basically one good (steriod infused) season, PLUS giving up a pitcher.
Couldn’t we just have picked up Eric Byrnes for the Major League minimum (saving over a million dollars), got the EXACT same production (with a MUCH better attitude and much more hustle) and better defense WITHOUT giving up a pitcher?
What in God’s name is Omar thinking?
This is a horrible move.
No, it’s not just a horrible one… it’s a stupid, non-sensical move.
Please, someone put the man out of his misery. I’m waiting now to hear he gives John Smoltz a two year deal worth $22 million.
Oh the humanity…
