Omar Minaya has a job offer

Omar Minaya profile

At the moment, Omar Minaya is off wherever he hangs his hat, thinking about his future.  He has one more option to think about, reports Brian Costa: a job offer to become Diamondbacks’ GM Kevin Towers’ special assistant. That job, Costa reports, would be similar to the job Towers had with Yankees last year after being let go from San Diego.

Minaya is still under contract with the Mets, so he doesn’t necessarily need the Arizona gig or any gig for that matter.  But you have to figure that (a) staying in New York with some empty title isn’t going to be very satisfying for anyone involved; and (b) staying active in the game somehow will increase the chances of him getting another shot at the boss’ chair one day.

Go west, Omar, go west.

      If he goes far enough west, he’ll be at Citi Field again.

    Any chance he can take Isiah Thomas with him?

    As Horace Greeley said “Go West Young Man, Go West” and stay there.

    The mcdonalds down the road is hiring managers. According to the sign its a great place to get started learning how to run a buisness.

    Considering he seems to have a good repertoire of Latin players, wouldn’t he be best suited in some sort of player development or scouting role of some kind?
