The case for signing Damion Easley

Remember Damion Easley? The guy that started at second base for most of the year last year while Castillo was hurt? I think Omar Minaya should reach out to his agent.

I know, he's 39 years old, but he's better than Ramon Martinez and Jeremy Reed combined. (And he's also a fan favorite.) Last year with the Mets, in 315 at bats, he hit a solid .270 with 6 home runs and 44 RBI's. I understand Omar letting him go and signing Alex Cora, who is a little bit better than Easley, but now that Cora is hurt and faces possible surgery, I think Easley is the (temporary) answer. I'm sure he's available on the cheap, and maybe even a minor league contract?

Sign him. And hurry, I hear the D-Backs have interest.
