Omar Minaya just spoke with the Mets beat writers. He said progress is being made in dialogues with agents and other general managers, but he’s not close on anything.
He also said he believes the Mets have enough pitching without them making a move.
“Do I think we have enough pitching? Yes, I think, if our pitchers pitch to their potential,” he said. “Yes, but they have to pitch to their potential.”
OK, a show of hands, please. How many think that’s going to happen. Are you willing to gamble 1) Mike Pelfrey takes a positive step, 2) John Maine comes back healthy, 3) Oliver Perez comes back healthy and with a clue, and 4) somebody from within the organization will step forward to be the fifth starter?
