Another fine quote I ran into today...

One of the trademarks of Omar Minaya’s three seasons as the Mets general manager has been his relentlessness in the free-agent market. He isolates an area of need, locks onto a player and does not move on until a deal is completed.

With Jorge Posada never truly an option, Minaya identified Yorvit Torrealba as his catcher of choice. After some fast-moving negotiations, the Mets are on the verge of signing him to a three-year, $14.4 million contract.
Everything is going along nicely until we run smack into the words "Yorvit Torrealba" in a sentence in which they seemingly don't belong. The author does go onto point out that Torrealba's road numbers (.212/.292/.326) indicate that the Mets "probably" plan to bat him eighth. Probably? Did we really think he was going to hit second or third?
