After the season, GM Omar Minaya vowed to fix the bullpen. It’s one thing to get one stud closer, it’s another to get two. And, he did. The need was to add power arms to the bullpen, and he couldn’t have done better.
That JJ Putz is looking forward to setting up Francisco Rodriguez, eliminates the ego problem. Also encouraging is both players want to play in New York. Rodriguez has thrived under pressure in big games before, so this in not a new environment for him.
Minaya isn’t done. There’s still a starter that needs to be added, but so far he’s done real well. Real well.
