That's right. The Mets need mediocre relievers and even more mediocre utility players (Welcome back, Marlon! You remember where the toilet is, of course. What's that? Oh, you just looked a little... heavy.) And a fourth catcher! A Molina-who-is-not-a-Molina, the paradox of non-being, a quantum whose position and velocity cannot both be known; he is both a catcher and not a catcher (a "pinch"-hitter who will surely receive more time at the plate than the best catcher on the Mets, Ramon Castro.)
We have the pitcher from Moneyball who didn't understand that he was traded to the team he was playing against, and was later exiled to Mexico while the Mets waited to do him a favor. We have 35-year old Ramon Martinez, not Pedro's brother but the mediocre infielder (God, we can never have enough of those) who has a career OPS+ of 81.
Omar made a lot of promises in spring training, and he intends to keep them. That must be why he failed to call up the Italian Thunder, Valentino Pascucci, who is currently OPSing .963 with 27 home runs for New Orleans, including a line of .365/.472/.731. How the Mets don't think he would be valuable, even as pinch-hiter, more so than Argenis Reyes, Marlon Anderson and Ramon Martinez, is simply beyond me. I just cannot comprehend this organization's thinking.
Please enlighten me.
