Minor Acquisitions

In addition to signing Kelly Stinnett yesterday the Mets made a few other acquisitions.

Though none of these moves will have an immediate impact (if any impact at all) on the big league club I have to give Omar Minaya props. Rather than sit on what he has at the big league level he’s gone out and acquired some depth that could help hold down the fort in case any of his starters get hurt. Gil and Valdez would help as utility infielders coming off the bench if Reyes or Matsui get hurt as they did last year. Lunar could help in a similar capacity should Piazza go down. There’s nothing like having major league ready talent close by for just such situations.
