“Moises Alou will be our left fielder next year,” said GM Omar Minaya in making the announcement. The 40-year-old Alou, who had a variety of nagging injuries last season, comes at the price of $7.5 million this year with a club option for 2008.
Alou batted .301 with 22 home runs and 74 RBI last season with San Francisco, and his presence pretty much assures Lastings Milledge of another year of Triple-A, that is, of course, if they don’t trade him for pitching.
That’s a possibility because with the Mets not picking up Tom Glavine’s option, there’s no guarantee he’s coming back. The Mets gave Glavine a $3 million buyout. Minaya said the team will continue negotiations. Glavine said it is either the Mets or Atlanta, but remember, the Braves haven’t made an offer, yet.
Waiting for your reaction.
