IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PITCHING David Lennon is still pining over the loss of Kris Benson and Jae Seo. He also wonders (as do the rest of us) what impact pitchers Soler, Bannister, Iriki, Maine and the underachiving Zambrano Project will do this season. All good question, but the bottom line is will be the production of Petey and Titan Tom Glavine. Without those two in tip top shape, the 3-4-5 spots in the rotaion are moot. Still Petey has not recieved his golden spike shoe from Nike (I bet if his name was Jordan or LeBron he have them by now) so that may push is workouts back. Titan Tom looks as good as ever. Then we have the very confident Omar Minaya who feels if he needs a starter he'll get one: {When asked Friday about his willingness to make a deal, Minaya brought up two spring training trades he pulled off as Expos GM - getting Livan Hernandez from the Giants and John Patterson from the Diamondbacks."I've been able to pick up guys," Minaya said. "There's opportunity out there." } Of course, who could ever forget the Kaz Ishii era! http://www.newsday.com/sports/baseball/mets/ny-spmside124624588feb12,0,3148088.story?page=1&coll=ny-mets-print (TO POST A COMMENT PLEASE CLICK ON THE TIME OF THIS POST) < |
