Mets players to Omar Minaya: Go get us an ace!

Jun 22, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

Meaning either Cliff Lee or Roy Oswalt. And that’s not an insult to Johan Santana, because he’s one of the ones saying it:

“What we’re looking for is a championship and when your getting a
pitcher of that caliber, that’s what they do,” Johan Santana said. “[Getting one of them] to go along with what we have,
it does nothing but make you better.”

Francisco Rodriguez is on board with that too, saying “another big name out there [i.e. in the rotation] would change the whole club and atmosphere.”  Mike Pelfrey agrees: “you’d definitely love to have those guys on your team. They’re elite.”

It would certainly be awesome for Mets fans if Minaya went out and got Cliff Lee. Just not nearly as awesome as the pic of Johan Santana holding a bowling ball painted up like a baseball in the linked article. Nice shirt too.

If the tags were working at this point I’d probably write something like “All right, I can see you don’t want to be cheered up here, Dude. Come on
Donny, let’s go get us a lane.”

    Check with the Yankees , I’m sure AJ Burnett will be available for a discounted price . That guy has been a total bust .

    Right. Friends like these, huh Craig.
    I admit I wondered whether you were a real Achiever after you had the Nihilists peeing on the dude’s rug a few months back (amateur), but now I think otherwise.
    Actually, I read your blog daily and totally dig and respect what you do. Thanks and keep it up.

    I’ll cry if the Mets get Lee. I’ll cry like a big baby. The phillies really screwed up big time by not keeping him for the nearly worthless prospects they got for him.

    For the love of God, Omar, GO GET CLIFF LEE! Mejia and another prospect and he’s ours!!!
