Understood, but instead of going out and looking for someone in
somebody's system who might actually have upside, he goes and gets a
guy that he should already knows sucks. But of course, Hernandez is
part of what Omar considers 'depth', a group that includes Endy
Chavez, Angel Pagan, Argenis Reyes, Jeremy Reed, Ramon Martinez, etc.
None of these guys can hit, yet all of them have been Omar Minaya
solutions to 'depth' at some point in the last few years. For once,
I'd like to see him get someone for the bench who could actually hit
the baseball. Maybe then, when one of his starters goes down, you
have a chance to have someone get hot for a little while.
I agree with the above in every respect except one. I do think that
Pagan, if he can stay healthy (a big IF for him and any Met nowadays),
is capable of being an excellent 4th OFer and perhaps a regular.
I could see him putting up seasons with 10 HRs, .280+ BA, 20 sb's, good
defense. That's not outstanding but it is pretty darn good.
