Omar MinayaBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Wait, didn't the Angels just get of a general manager who loaded up the team with bad contracts and underachieving players? Maybe Arte Moreno has a type, because the Los Angeles Times reports former Mets general manager Omar Minaya has interviewed for the Angels' open general manager position.

The Angels' are apparently interviewing everyone short of me for the position, so this may end up being nothing more than a good laugh for Mets fans, but still it seems interesting.

The others who have reportedly interviewed or gotten an interview are White Sox assistant GM Rick Hahn, MLB senior vice president Kim Ng, Diamondbacks exec Jerry DiPoto and Yankees staffers Billy Eppler and Damon Oppenheimer. Rays general manager Andrew Friedman has also been connected to the job.

Really this guy gets another shot? I get the minority in leadership position of MLB, but come on there are far more deserving folks than he!

"Los Angels" would actually fit that geographic.  The only suckup GM in sports history who allowed "los" to be put in front of the team name on the jersey for games. 
that sums it up.

Just glad he will never be back with the Mets.  Enjoy him and the losing most likely to follow Angels fans.

@ MisterSimple - Your insult about Minaya managing a carwash was an insult to carwash managers.

Hiring Minaya as your GM would be Artie Moreno`s worst move since eating big fat Vernon Wells contract.  The Artie & Omar show would not go well.  Omar destroyed the Mets with his crazy moves.  The Angels have a good foundation, but need a solid to GM to shore up the pitching and clean up the over paid OF`s(Wells-they`re stuck with, but big fat Bobby Abreau has to go)  Bad move Angels, unless he guarantees Reyes signing.

Well, this is good new for Oliver Perez, he will be making a comeback.  I agree the Wilpons are idiots but so is Omar Minaya.  Two negatives do not make a positive except in Math!

I truely cannot believe this man is even getting another interview. The man who spawned the M.E.T.S. slogan My Entire Team is Spanish.. threw all kinds of money at marginally servicable players just because of their origin and more once denied rumors of someone under his watch being accused of hitting players. Then even himself later on accused of physical contact with a minor leaguer, and eventually dismissed because of his unprofessional way of doing things. This man belongs managing a car wash, not a baseball franchaise. I dont care where he came from or what time he has put in. He is trash and for anyone to even admit they would see him, is either afraid of a lawsuit or flat out stupid.
