And now Friday’s installment of tiny Met news:
- The venerable Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse tweeted that the Mets have signed Jolbert Cabrera to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.Â Don’t forget to RSVP Jolbert!Â It probably is not a move designed to attract his brother Orlando to the Mets, but hey who knows?
- Matt Klaasen of FanGraphs wrote a piece about the post Adam LaRoche to the Diamondbacks free agent 1B market and in it suggested the Mets should sign Russell Branyan.
- John Maine feels great.Â So why don’t I?
- Stan McNeal of The Sporting News considers the Mets to be a contender.Â At least, that’s the main thing I took from his article entitled “Mets Need Joel Pineiro More Than Any Other Contender.”
- Perhaps the best sports journalist name going, Roch Kubatko, says the Orioles are monitoring old friend Carlos Delgado in Puerto Rico.
