Quintanilla hopes for another shot at the 'show'
El Paso, TX — Omar Quintanilla is a career .221 hitter in the majors, after making his debut in 2005 with the Colorado Rockies. Now with the New York Mets organization, Quintanilla appeared in 15 games with the Mets before the team called up 22-year old Wilmer Flores from Triple-A Las Vegas, and optioned Quintanilla down to the 51's in Las Vegas. He's now hoping he can buy his time, improve enough to make another good impression on the Mets organization.
"Ah, just love of the game keeps me around you know, I've been on a grind all this time, and I love baseball so much that I am going to do it until the end, until they tell me I can't because once you can't, you are going to regret the time you didn't, so just go out there, and give it my best every day, and have fun. You never stop improving in baseball, you can always get better."
Las Vegas continues its' road trip, while Quintanilla continues to improve his game.
