Interview with Omar

MetsBlog Talk Radio logoAs mentioned last month, MetsBlog is now on the air, just like the blowhards on WFAN. OK, it’s a little different — for example, internet radio isn’t in your car (yet), but it’s a good development for the blogs and a great advancement for the fans, who now have a choice.

The choice for Mets coverage is now:

1. a two-team tandem consisting of a hyperactive rat terrier San Francisco Giant fan and a diehard Yankee fan who has trouble getting his words out in between bites of a six-foot sub

2. a diehard Yankee fan and Yankee announcer who claims not to be a Yankee fan

3. a diehard Yankee fan who thinks the National League is not the Major Leagues

4. the MetsBlog staff headed by the fair and balanced Matt Cerrone

It’s an easy decision, from this vantage point.

Matt’s been getting some great guests and putting together excellent shows, but he’s really hit the mother lode this week: his special guest is Mets General Manager Omar Minaya.

Be sure to tune in to the show at 6:30 PM tonight, or download it afterward and listen to it at your leisure.

    Congrats on landing Omar Minaya. I hope you’ll ask him about the trade rumors surrounding Mark Buehrle. Can’t wait to listen in.

    I wish it was me who landed him … however it’s Matt Cerrone over at MetsBlog (

    I’m sure Matt will bring up the subject of trades, but doubt Omar will mention any names — MLB rules prohibit it.
