A Little To The Left

Here's the question that you, the Met fan, need ask yourself at this moment:

Would you rather have a second lefty on the roster, even if that second lefty has proven himself to be a complete bum? Or ...

Do you fill the remaining spots with righties that have proven to be useful parts of baseball society in the spring?

Ron Villone not being able to get lefties out today against Detroit, combined with Bobby Parnell pitching a stellar inning makes the question an interesting one. You want to take your chances with righties like Parnell, Darren O'Day, Brian Stokes, and perhaps Carlos Muniz's New Splitter (sounds like a movie) against the likes of Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, and Raul Ibanez? Or do you want another lefty to boo at home?

And how much more difficult is this question to answer knowing that you have guys like Will Ohman out there practically begging for a job with a contender. It's such a sad sight ... I wish it didn't have to come to this for Ohman:

Is Ohman really still available? How is that possible?

He should be a Met. Forget Ron Villone -- he sucks.

How much dough is this Ohman character askin' for?

From Rosenthal:

"The Marlins would like to sign free-agent left-hander Will Ohman, but the pitcher is believed to be seeking terms similar to what the Nationals gave Joe Beimel — one year, $2 million. That's too pricey for the Fish."

Pretty ridiculous if that's also too pricey for a team in the number one market in the U.S. which is opening a new ballpark and charging $300 for the best seats. Just sayin'.

There was talk about a month ago or so about Omar being interested in Ohman. I think there may have even been discussions. Maybe that was around the time that the Wilpons found out that Ohman's 2 mil got lost in the pyramid.
