Another excellent job by MetsBlog, which had a wide-ranging Q and A with Omar Minaya. Among the more interesting responses was Minaya’s admission that four years were too many for Luis Castillo. Of course, we all knew that, but Minaya owned up to it.
Fans may like that, but they won’t like Minaya’s feelings on how to construct a bullpen. He gives the impression that bullpens run hot and cold and the Mets were just stone cold.
Makes me wonder how many changes are actually in store this winter. The Mets may give guys they once trusted â€” guys like Duaner Sanchez â€” another chance. You’d still have to think Aaron Heilman is on the block, though.
