Tim Marchman at SI ranked all of the general managers.
I was going to paste what he said about Omar but how about people reply with their guess on Omar before peeking?

Whoops. Using exclusively FanGraphs logic I just assumed Omar 29th and the Royals guy 30th. I (or they) was half right.
26. Omar Minaya, New York Mets

I’m not much of Omar fan, but I don’t know about this ranking… you have Pirates GM ranked 1 below Ruben Amaro and ahead of Omar.
For Jim Hendry (#16) of the Cubs he says “It’s tempting to overreact to a lousy 2009 and to heavily count bad contracts doled out to players such as Alfonso Soriano and Milton Bradley against Hendry…..” and he says that the Cubs have been consistently successful and can compete for WS every year prior to ’09 season… blah blah blah..And he ranks Ruben Amaro at #19.
So the Mets haven’t been a consistently competitive team prior to ’09 season…? I’m sorry, but I think Soriano and Bradley signings are far worse than Castillo and Ollie signings.
3/4/2010-5:03pm at 5:03 pm (UTC -4)
Yea absolutely agree on that. Omar’s done a better job than that guy.
3/4/2010-5:11pm at 5:11 pm (UTC -4)
Even I agree with that!
3/4/2010-5:53pm at 5:53 pm (UTC -4)
More moronic, mendacious, meaningless drivel.
The team is imploding on his watch? The real question here is which is more pathetic, that SI would print this, or that one sentient being would take it seriously.
3/4/2010-8:53pm at 8:53 pm (UTC -4)
Well, after SI predicting the Mets winning the WS last year, hard to take their analysis seriously – LOL….

Una Pela y a la misma vez una salsa.
3/4/2010-4:47pm at 4:47 pm (UTC -4)
Salsa? I like Salsa and Chips
I had salsa, chips and 6 Newcastle Browns this afternoon while watching the game so I apologize for drunken typing but Whooooooooo!

Jealous but I’ll be able to start soon. The nice thing is it’s getting warm enough at night to go into the hot tub.
Nice choice of beers, definitely one of my favorites. Have some Sierra Nevada Torpedo’s waiting at home.
3/4/2010-5:19pm at 5:19 pm (UTC -4)
The torpedos are some good stuff.
Fat Tire has their seasonal pale ale. my all time fav. Mighty Arrow Ale. If you like the hops, check it out.

6 Newcastles while I was working!!
Nice work my friend!!
No knowing Spanish I put it through one of those online translators
“An it Peels and to the same time a sauce”
3/4/2010-4:51pm at 4:51 pm (UTC -4)
That’s some deeps stuff man…
Yeah google gives me this:
a fight and at the same time a sauce
So… Mr. NNJ, what the heck does that mean?
3/4/2010-7:55pm at 7:55 pm (UTC -4)
Sorry a pela is like saying a whooping and a salsa is another way of saying the same thing. Think of salsa like someone saying they just wiped the floor with you.
3/4/2010-4:46pm at 4:46 pm (UTC -4)
Looks like GMJ had a productive day. And watch out for Dickey, he’s on fire.
They sell ointment for that!!!
3/4/2010-4:58pm at 4:58 pm (UTC -4)
I realize it’s just a meaningless spring training game but 7 for 17 with runners in scoring position is nice nonetheless.
3/4/2010-5:00pm at 5:00 pm (UTC -4)
talk about CLUTCH!
3/4/2010-5:05pm at 5:05 pm (UTC -4)
these guys are bums!
3/4/2010-5:09pm at 5:09 pm (UTC -4)
Wait!!!….I thought the Pitchers were way ahead of
the hitters at this point in Spring????
3/4/2010-5:51pm at 5:51 pm (UTC -4)
Not OUR hitters!!
3/4/2010-6:24pm at 6:24 pm (UTC -4)
nor our pitchers apparently.
3/4/2010-6:29pm at 6:29 pm (UTC -4)
Well, personally I think the Dickey singing was the worst of the offseason and I pray he does not make the team. I also think Green is pretty awful, so, frankly, these guys doing badly in March might help once the real games start.
3/4/2010-6:54pm at 6:54 pm (UTC -4)
I want whoever is good to make the team, whoeve rthat happens to be. I don’t car which ones figure it out.
3/4/2010-7:04pm at 7:04 pm (UTC -4)
Agreed….check out Dickey’s stats sometime….
He makes Figgy look like Gooden in 1985.
3/4/2010-9:48pm at 9:48 pm (UTC -4)
No question. (f*ck, that’s a Manuel phrase..now I need to wash my mouth out with beer)
But there is always that possibility that he learns how to Harness the Terrible power of the KNUCKLEBALL, takes a step forward, and makes the past irrelevant.
Of course, that’s a terrible terrible long shot. And not looking likely. but if he doesn’t let up another run the rest of spring? Can steal us 2-3 wins or something? hey, you nver know.
3/4/2010-6:57pm at 6:57 pm (UTC -4)
The movement on a knuckleball is directly impacted by the elements and with the strong wind today I will give Dickey a pass.
All POPPs claim that Dickey and Green will be major contributors to the successful Mets drive for a World Championship this year.
3/4/2010-7:05pm at 7:05 pm (UTC -4)
Let me just say that your use of the acronym for Purveyors of Partial Positiviality truly makes me smile!
And my guess is that the wind HELPED Dickey!
3/4/2010-8:20pm at 8:20 pm (UTC -4)
Not according to MC.
3/4/2010-9:20pm at 9:20 pm (UTC -4)
Gategem, you have watched baseball longer than any of us, if I am not mistaken—please look at Dickey’s career—he is without question the worst MLB veteran pitcher in camp, and probably would be average in AAA.
Based on what I am pretty sure I remember you posting in the past, I would guess that you have forgotten more about baseball than MC will ever know.
3/4/2010-7:01pm at 7:01 pm (UTC -4)
Gary Cohen had the day off??
After not working for 5 months!!
3/4/2010-8:09pm at 8:09 pm (UTC -4)
liking all these pen arms. Hopefully the vets come out strong, so they can stash the spares (green, parnell, etc.) in Buffalo.
If he gets squeezed out, send Parnell to buff, and make him the closer. And get him a tutor to work on maxing the benefit of his FB, and figure out what 2nd pitch (sinker/cutter/slider) works for him, then make him work on it until he masters.
maybe abandoning SP and focusing on late inning relief (build the perfect machine!) will turn him into useful RP, for later in the year or next year?
3/4/2010-9:47pm at 9:47 pm (UTC -4)
What we have now, plus FMart, Davis, Mejia, Thole, Tejada, and maybe Parnell and Niese after a year of AAA seasoning?
Think about it–this team could be loaded in 2011.
3/4/2010-9:55pm at 9:55 pm (UTC -4)
If they have a rough start and maybe 1 more media gaffe, it could be another GM that reaping all the benefits!
3/4/2010-9:56pm at 9:56 pm (UTC -4)
3/4/2010-10:14pm at 10:14 pm (UTC -4)
What, our best prospects are in positions we have holes, weaker players, or upcoming holes? Shocking.
3/4/2010-8:18pm at 8:18 pm (UTC -4)
Glad to see Green pick up where he left off.
3/4/2010-8:19pm at 8:19 pm (UTC -4)
I just posted this in entirely the wrong spot but here’s my odd moment of the day.
I get a wrong call on my cell today. I back search the number, what’s the name that comes up:
Jose S. Reyes
I kid you not. Bizzaro.
3/4/2010-9:35pm at 9:35 pm (UTC -4)
yes, GMJ was the missing piece to a Harang or Arroyo trade. Omar is brilliant.
