Sorry if this has already been posted

Update: Valentin took a physical on Wednesday and has agreed to a one-year deal with the Mets, the NY Daily News reports.

Recommendation: Valentin provides the Mets with depth at second and third base as well as shortstop and the outfield, albeit one whose batting average and OBP leave a lot to be desired.

I donīt know about 2B...that seems like a bit of a stretch to me.

He could be a very valuable bench player.

I am not sure that Minaya is the great GM everyone makes him out to be though...anyone could be successful eventually with the kind of money he has been given to sign talent.

I haven't heard anyone refer to Minaya as a successful manager. He has done anything yet except spend a lot of money and make a lot of trades.

Recently, it seems both GMs in New York have caught on to this philosophy but have been unsuccessful in putting together a championship team.

Even thought the Mets have officially become the team I hope falls flat on their faces, I hope Jose has a nice year.

The doctor who gave the physical said he is in great shape, and the Valenstache is most certainly "Still Bristlin'". Good luck, Jose.

I know the Dodgers paid Joser 1 million last year. Anyone heard how much he's getting. I'm sure if he throws in a few mustache rides , he'd get a bonus.

It's the Mets so I wouldn't Be supprised if it was 108 Million Spread out over 15 years.

I guess it's only a minor league deal for under a million.

Jose off the bench is a good move for the Mets. He has some pop in his bat.

If it's a minor league deal, I'll get to see the 'Stache play locally for the Norfolk Tides. Maybe I can finally snag his autograph...:D:
