Quote of the Day II: Jon Heyman

bengie molina homers. regardless, what were Mets thinking? this guy can play.

Jon Heyman tweeting after Bengie Molina hit a home run in the second game of spring training. Heyman is seemingly overlooking the fact that Molina is a career .276/.308/.418 hitter — coming off a worse year than that — and is on record as of this morning saying that he told the Mets that it was a two-year deal or nothing.

Heyman is a reporter. For all of the barbs I’ve thrown in his direction, I’ll freely admit that he does a good job when he sticks to reporting.  He is not an analyst, however, as this bit of wisdom and many many other examples illustrate.
