In response to a question about Pedro Martinez, Omar thinks that with the signing of Livan Hernandez, they are set with the pitchers they have.
Earlier today, Jerry Manuel told reporters that he may look to bat Jose Reyes third, while batting Luis Castillo in the lead-off spot.
Minaya noted that it's what spring training is for - to try out new things, and that it doesn't matter what Reyes thinks about it if it's what's in the best interest of the team.
Minaya said they gave permission to Johan Santana to play in the WBC, but the issue with insurance prevented him from playing in the tournament.
Also, he says he envisions Jose Valentin acting as a player-coach for Triple-A Buffalo, much like Mike DeFelice did last season.
Lastly, he likes the team, as he did in '06, '07, and '08, but thinks he has put together a team that is better than last year's.
