Mondesi To The Mets?

You know I love following the unlikely comeback stories of the spring.  Our subject today is 36 year-old outfielder Raul Mondesi, last seen in the Majors with the Braves in 2005.

My Spanish is a little rusty, but here's the El Nuevo Dia article announcing his possible comeback.  According to the article, Mondesi is in negotiations with the Mets and an unknown Japanese club.  He should probably opt for Door #2. 

It sounds like he is physically at 85% and plans to play in the Pan-American Games.  Once he's 100% by summer he'd like to join a big league team.  Correct me if I am wrong on that translation. 

I expect a denial by the Mets by lunchtime Wednesday.

lol 'EL nuevo dia", thats the newspaper from where i live (puerto rico), sad the front page today was the murder of a friend of mine in the weekend....good newspaper though.

Debbie Downer.

great another cling-on has been (actually a never really was) with a bad attitude wants back in the majors...nice.

Minor league contract, clearly. Omar likes insurance and, apparently, giving second chances.

Mondesi was soooo bad with the Braves two years ago.... I can't believe anyone would give him another second chance.

As a Braves fan, I'm really hoping the Mets sign him to a deal of any size.

all of these old, once productive outfielders who get contracts b/c they happen to be in great shape are a little overrated. richard hidalgo was in the same situation with the astros this spring with everyone singing his praises and he hasn't hit well at all. and mondesi himself flopped with the braves trying to do it a few years ago like mraver said. idk what minaya is trying to accomplish here
