Mets Sign Contract with Former Yankee, Sierra
By mvyb, 12:58

Rubén Sierra is batting in the ninth inning of a game against Texas, the last game before the All-Star Game last July. Minnesota is down by three runs with a runner on second base, two out and Joe Mauer on deck. Ignoring a take sign, Sierra swings at what might be ball four and misses, then strikes out for the final out.

How can you not like a guy like this?

The Twins released Sierra the day after that game, and the Mets wanted to sign him to a minor league contract last August with the understanding that they would recall him in September when rosters expanded. But Sierra’s mother had had a series of medical problems and he opted to take care of her instead of playing.

The Mets continue to believe in Sierra’s goodness and are in the process of negotiating that minor league contract with him.

“We haven’t finalized anything yet, but that’s probably what will happen,” Sierra’s agent, Chuck Berry, said yesterday.

The Mets have no immediate plans for Sierra, a 41-year-old outfielder, to make the major league team out of spring training, but he will be in their system if the need arises for a veteran hitter. In the meantime, he will be able to help the Mets’ young players.

“With the Yankees, he was known as something of a mentor working with younger kids and it was the same way in Texas,” Berry said. “People in those organizations appreciate how he has taken to helping kids.”

This is a really good article on Sierra and his interesting career. I liked Sierra when he was with the Bombers (memories of his big 2004 homers on July 24 against the BoSox, July 22 against Toronto, August 28 against the Jays, and August 13 versus the M's come to mind).
.
The only reason I'm blogging about this, is that he was a former Yankee, and there isn't really anything else to talk about. All quiet on the western front.
