There has to be more to it than this
The Mets pulled off a trade today. They have acquired OF Gary Matthews Jr. from the Angels, who will pay off “a majority” of the remaining $24 million left on his contract. No word yet who the Mets are sending but word is that it is a “low-salary pitcher off the major league roster” (Which means it’s not Oliver Perez).
If this trade included sending Luis Castillo I think it might have made some sense. But it does not involve Luis Castillio.
So my reaction is thus: There has to be more to it than this. HAS to be. If this is the only move and nothing else connected to it happens… well… then the Mets need to commit Omar. Just get him some psychiatric help… because even if the Mets only have to play like $3.5 of the $24 million owned… it’s STILL too much.
So, I will hold out and say again: there has to be more of it than this… because if there is not… well… someone has lost his frigging mind.
