One of the most interesting comments from yesterday’s damage control afternoon at Citi Field was GM Omar Minaya’s proclamation he would improve the team through the trade route.
Sounded good except for one thing.
Who will the Mets deal?
The same farm system that couldn’t produce a quality trade this summer is now being asked to come up with the chips now. To me that signals a willingness to deal players the club wanted to hold onto. That could spell that the Mets are growing frustrated with Mike Pelfrey and might listen to offers they previously would have ignored.
Also ignored in the past were overtures for Francisco Martinez.
I’m not saying it is imminent either will go, just that it wouldn’t be surprising if it did.
