The Mets are expected to offer catcher Bengie Molina a contract before the winter meetings break up this afternoon. If so, they obviously won’t get a response today. Just because the Mets will leave Indianapolis without making a splash it doesn’t mean they won’t get something done.
Omar Minaya said the Mets are talking and laying the groundwork for the future. It’s usually like this during the winter meetings. Not too often does the blockbuster happen during the meetings as it usually is an information gathering process. For free agents, there’s usually the obligatory visit to the new city and stadium to be wined and dined.
Minaya said the Mets would be “players,” but he didn’t say big players and there’s a difference.
