Firin' Brian Fuentes Should Be Coming to New York

Sean MatraiContributor INovember 22, 2008

Omar Minaya, unless you have plans to acquire someone like Ben Sheets, A.J. Burnett, or CC Sabathia, please go after Brian Fuentes. I've got three reasons why you will agree:

  1. J.J Putz is not my guy—he has OK stuff, in 2007 he had an impressive year, though, recording an ERA of 1.88. I still don't think this guy is reliable.
  2. Francisco Rodriguez's arm slot—I honestly think he is prone to severe injury in his arm and ankle and all over his  body.
  3. He is cheaper than K-Rod and, with that, you can still pick up another player in a decent trade.
