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 [Carlos] Beltranback, 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?
