Just got a list of the Mets Spring Training Invitees

I'm a little surprised at a few of these names, but I guess the Mets are counting on recapturing some of the old magic.

Spring Training Invites:
Tom Glavine
John Smoltz
Pedro Martinez
Mike Hampton
Kris Benson
Shawn Estes
Livan Hernandez
Tim Redding
Glendon Rusch
Jason Isringhausen
Guillermo Mota
Duaner Sanchez

Omar Minaya "We feel very comfortable and excited that we have the opportunity to bring in a lot of veterans who have been around the block and have a lot to teach our younger pitchers. We are really looking forward to holding an open competition for our 4 starters after Johan, and feel that from this field of 25, we can find some real bargains and help our fans forget that we didn't put an offer in for Ben Sheets, Jon Garland or John Lackey, nor that we had an substantial conversations for any of the pitchers traded this off-season."

(As of now, this post is completely fictional, but I won't put it past the Mets anymore)


  1. Anybody know Anthony Young's contact info, maybe he's free in a few weeks ???

  2. I am going to throw a bullpen today and send the video to Omar to see if I have what it takes.

    and I hope I'm right that Kris Benson is indeed invited, wouldn't mind seeing Anna Benson down there in a few weeks

  3. What? No Buddy Bengel on the list? He couldn't get a shot either? That's just not right...

  4. Buddy still has a chance, as does Ken K. 3 weeks is an eternity in the Mets world and they can consider these unsigned free agents.

  5. I thought this was a legit post all the down through about half-way of the quote.

  6. I think you should rent a mini van and take OMAR out....
