Barajas likely to accept Mets offer

Feb 18, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

Heyman tweets that Rod Barajas is likely to accept a minor league offer from the Mets worth $1 million if he makes the team. Heyman also says that he’s likely to be the Mets starting catcher. If the Mets are so sure about him starting I’m not sure why it’s a minor league offer, but I guess there are some relatively Byzantine roster reasons for such a thing.

The Mets took a rather roundabout way of getting their catcher, but at the end of the day they and their fans should be a lot happier about paying Rod Barajas $1 million than paying Bengie Molina three times that for two years or whatever it was he was demanding. Because really, there isn’t a night-and-day difference between Rod Barajas and Bengie Molina.

    If he signs a minor league contract the jays will not get draft pick compensation correct?
    If that’s the case they might as well offer him a million buckets and a major league deal to come back and split time with Buck who is not exactly an upgrade. He would be a lot better then Chavez who’d likely be forced to stick around in AAA since nothing better would come up for him.

    If Barajas is willing to accept an offer from the Mutts, his bookie must be right up his tailpipe. Scenes from the Class Struggle in Flushing Meadows, with Wallace Shawn as Omar Minaya and Ed Begley Jr. as Fred Wilpon. Bet I could get Harvey Weinstein to spring for it.
