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:
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)
