The Dumbest Thing Omar Minaya Ever Said?

I realize there is a laundry list of dumb things that have come out of Omar Minaya’s mouth but this quote in today’s column from Jon Heyman on SI.com might take the cake:

“St. Louis is always tough. If we can win two out of three, that will be outstanding. If we win one, I’ll take it. We’ve gotJose[Reyes] back, and once we get [Daniel]Murphyand [CarlosBeltranback, we can compete with everyone else.”

Can you set the bar any lower, Omar?

A 3 game sweep would be outstanding and anyone with half a brain would take 2 of 3.  Anything less is simply unacceptable.

The Mets are already 3-6.  If they only win 1 in St. Louis, they will be 4-8.  That is .250 baseball, Omar.  Over 162 games that is a 40.5 win season.   You would really take that?

  1. I thought the dumber thing he said there was that once they get Murphy and Beltran back, they can compete with everyone else.

    Beltran coming back makes me feel better than Murphy (think how nicely he’ll fill that void of a first baseman the Mets have right now). But facts indicate that Carlos Beltran is nowhere near being back. I’ve seen Tommy John surgery patients return to action quick than Beltran if you count all the time missed last year.

  2. “If they only win 1 in St. Louis, they will be 4-8. That is .250 baseball, Omar.” That is .333 baseball, Metsie. Over 162 games that is a 54 win season. No, I wouldn’t take that.

  3. This piece is great, except for all the complicated math. My brain hurts.
