Even though I highly doubt Omar’s ability to ever be anything but a complete screw up, as a Met fan it is relieving to finally have an intelligent pick up. A bright spot in an otherwise dark off-season.
Huge injury risk due to horrible mechanics, namely flying wide open with his glove-side arm. With Kiko, it’s not a question of “if he’ll sustain a season ending injury”, but “when he sustains a season-ending injury”.
Am I the only one that thinks it’s hilarious that, even afetr the injury-plagued 2009, the Mets sign a reliever that is detined to be injured?
I guess there’s two ways to look at last season:
 He threw 60 IP after essentially missing 07 and 08, so he’s past his injuries.
 The full season means his injuries will come this year.
Calero is what he is. He is probably worth the risk at the right price. He’s not going to make or break the team, but when healthy he can be a significant bullpen piece.
