guess is a minor league deal.
O’Connor pitched 6.2 innings for the New York Mets last season, where he gave-up five hits, two earned runs, three walks and struck out eight batters. Before that O’Connor had not seen a MLB ballpark since 2008 and for good reason after giving up 13 earned runs in nine innings.
These signings can be very alarming when you look at guys, like O’Connor’s numbers.
Unlike last year, Yankee fans can’t deem Cashman headed for the loony -bin again, because whether it was genius or luck that led to success doesn’t really matter because it worked.
So, for now I will keep my mouth shut but for how long I cannot promise, especially if Cashman goes on a desperation run again.
I can’t help but point out that signing any Met player that was kept in the minors except for six innings does not seem to wise EVER!!
