I keep hearing because of the landscape of the closer market that the Mets have the pick of the litter. The Angels, Rockies and Cubs have closers in waiting so there’s no urgency for them to bring back Francisco Rodriguez, Brian Fuentes or Kerry Wood.
We’ve seen the Mets wait – too long – in the past and come away empty. What’s your gut telling you today? Will that happen again or will Omar Minaya land a closer.
My stomach tells me he’ll bring somebody in. It doesn’t tell me, however, he’ll get a closer and rebuild the bridge.
