The Circle of O
I finally read the article in Sports Illustrated today on Omar Minaya by Gary Smith. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. It is a great article on him, his style and personality. Teams usually take on the personality of the coach. But this team is a little different. This team has blended together the personalities of both Willie and Omar and that is what makes the Mets so fun to watch.
Another interesting comment from the article was when Fred Wilpon told Omar, "We've become irrelevant in New York City, you got to come home." That could not have been a more true statement. Too bad this did not happen before Kazmir was traded. But we can't complain too much. Now we have young stars with more on the way combined with proven veterans and a new stadium coming. The future looks bright, even if the last two weeks have been awful.
