To be honest, I don’t know who this is more embarrassing for. From Jerry Crasnick’s Twitter:
The Mets are close to agreement on a minor league deal with (former Met) Mike Jacobs. He’ll go to camp on a non-roster invite.
Do you smell that? It’s the overwhelming stench of desperation on the part of both the Mets and Mike Jacobs. The Mets have got to be pretty desperate to sign a guy they traded away years ago in the Carlos Delgado deal, especially considering he’s perhaps the worst defensive first baseman in all of baseball and struggles to reach base safely even 30% of the time.
On Jacobs’ part, he’s returning to an overweight, psychopathic ex-lover after getting released by the Royals, a slightly less-overweight lover. The fact that it’s a minor league deal just means that the Mets are allowed to blow other dudes.
