Bring Manny Ramirez home Omar Minaya.

By Frank Barone- Metsmix writer

As we move closer to the start of spring training, less than three weeks until pitchers and catchers report, the urgency grows for both Omar Minaya and Scott Boras, albeit for different reasons.

For Mets General Manager Omar Minaya, he has to realize how the frustrated Mets faithful feel, who for two years in a row have seen their team collapsing down the final home stretch of the season. For Scott Boras, he has a premier free agent client, Manny Ramirez, which no team wants to give a long term contract, or so it seems.

It seems like a perfect fit, the Mets need the clutch feared hitter in the middle of the batting order. Manny Ramirez is a career 314 hitter with 527 home runs and 1,725 RBIs. He led the Los Angeles Dodgers to the National League championship series last season after arriving from Boston in a July 31 trade. He batted .396 with 17 homers, 53 RBIs in 53 games with Los Angeles.

The Mets currently plan to platoon Daniel Murphy and Fernando Tatis in left field this year; can we expect anything close to the production that Manny could bring? We know Manny can be fickle, and play to his own wishes at times, but out on the field he is focused and one of the best clutch hitters in the game.

So Omar, go out and lure Manny here to Citi Field, bring back the George Washington High School graduate to his New York roots. Give him the opportunity to be the local hero that has finally come home to New York.
