“You know what? My phone is off. And I won’t (call Minaya) unless he calls my agent (Fernando Cuza) or he calls me. I have a lot of respect for Omar and the Mets, but I’m not going to go chasing the Mets.  I’m not in that bad of shape. I’m okay and they know […]

In Newsday, David Lennon posted an interesting article about the possibility of Godzilla coming ashore in Flushing next season.  I hope Omar Minaya doesn’t read that article.  We don’t need him to get inspired by it.
