Return to New York? Yankees considering Omar Minaya for front office position

It’s not clear what role he would fill, but Boland notes that VP of baseball operations Mark Newman recently retired while longtime Yankee scout Gordon Blakeley left for a job with the Braves.

He certainly has done all he could do in his three seasons with the Padres.  I assume.  I mean, who knows?  If you told me with conviction that the Padres folded five years ago, I would probably believe you.

Sherman :Minaya’s ‘mess’ is what’s saving Alderson’s Mets now

Omar Minaya’s fingerprints remain indelible on the major league team. You could argue the Mets’ five best players to date have been Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda, Juan Lagares, Dillon Gee and Jonathon Niese.

All were drafted or signed internationally in a fertile 2006-08 period when Minaya’s Mets brought in a shipload of players who would reach the majors such as Joe Smith, Jose Quintana, Ike Davis, Josh Stinson, Josh Satin, Maikel Cleto, Collin McHugh, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Wilmer Flores, Jeurys Familia, Jenrry Mejia, Gonzalez Germen and Ruben Tejada. The parting gift came in 2010 – Minaya’s final draft – when the Mets selected Matt Harvey in the first round.
