In a rare positive Mets outlook from the mind of Ken Davidoff, he details why Omar’s done everything right so far this offseason, but the fans just don’t see it. Davidoff brings up some significant early signings from Omar’s past years with the Mets – Pedro, Ollie, Castillo, and the Putz trade…and how none of them worked out as intended. And yet the fans have still clamored for quick signings this offseason. Ken praises the patience of Omar, which could end up benefitting the Mets in the end. They may end up getting Bay for less than they would have otherwise, and if not, they may end up with extra money to spend on the better free agent class of 2010.
That’s easy for Ken to say…but I can only bank on “they’ll be better next year” so many times.
