  1. Perhaps Minaya was out of town when the move was made…

  2. “A broken clock is right two times a day”

    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.

  3. Rumor has it that Calero was added because he was a catcher when he was 12.

  5. As a Mets fan, this is my favorite move since the end of last season.

  6. Minaya jokes aside, kudos for nabbing a good setup man for next to nothing.

    Sad part is, he might actually pitch better than his $37MM closer.

  7. I see the broken clock comment has already been made…pretty much nothing else to say at this point.

  8. An insult to broken clocks everywhere.

  10. Minaya is hard to typecast. He makes good moves followed by bad moves. Is not consistent in either direction.

  11. 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:

    [1] He threw 60 IP after essentially missing 07 and 08, so he’s past his injuries.
    [2] 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.
