Well, we know where he learned obp from…ops, I’m not quite sure.
With the Red Sox considering changes in baseball operations, including in international scouting, is it possible Omar Minaya could be added to the staff? According to a source, the Sox may be interested in Minaya for a position in the organization.
...Minaya was appointed GM of the Mets on Sept. 30, 2004, a position he held until the end of the 2010 season, when he was let go with two years remaining on his contract. He was not with a team in 2011, and still has one year remaining on his Mets contract, which would not affect the Sox’ ability to hire him. If he were to join the Sox, the money owed him by the Mets would be reduced by the amount of his Sox salary for 2012.
“He’s a versatile experienced baseball man,” said one major league executive. “He can scout and knows Latin America. He’s a good evaluator with good people skills and a creative mind. He’s not afraid to think outside the box. He’s aggressive. He likes players.”
for his generous support.
