Omar Minaya: Murphy’s Our First Baseman, No DL For Reyes
According to Adam Rubin of the Daily News, here are the main points covered during Omar Minaya’s conference call with the media.
1. As most of you already know, Carlos Delgado will be out an estimated ten weeks after surgery to repair his hip injury. The ten weeks is estimated based on the track record of other players with a similar condition.
2. Don’t look for the Mets to make a trade. Omar Minaya insisted that they have the manpower to ride this storm. Fernando Tatis and Daniel Murphy will now play first base almost exclusively.
3. Regarding Daniel Murphy, Omar stated that first base belonged to him along anyway. He was going to be the first baseman of the future even in the Delgado injury had never occurred. Reminds me of Adam Schein, “That’s my guy!”
4. Finally, Jose Reyes will not go on the DL, but he didn’t mention whether he would be in tonights lineup. We’ll wait and see.
Omar also said that there’s plenty of time between now and the trade deadline, which I guess suggest that the phone lines are always open.
