Mets Close To Re-Signing Tatis

Looks like the Mets found some infield depth in the person of Fernando Tatis. According to the New York Post, Omar Minaya "is deep in negotiations" with Tatis, and reportedly "has been told by Minaya that he is wanted as part of a first-base platoon with Murphy." The report also says Tatis was seeking close to the $1.7 million he recieved last year.

Alright, let's be reasonable here. There's no way Tatis as a platoon partner for Murphy is a good idea. If you want to get Murphy a platoon partner, get him a quality platoon partner. I would have been happier with Mike Lowell, or Ryan Garko, as a platoon partner for Murphy, over this stupidity. Hopefully, the "platoon" part of this report is a mistake or something. I am fine with Tatis as a bench player, but a platoon-partner is a bad idea.

If the Mets aren't going to bring in a real first baseman they might as well let Murphy be groomed and learn the position. Omar, this is dumb. The only positive here is that it probably eliminates any chance of Delgado coming back...Ugh.
