Mets Nix Manny?

January 23, 2009 at 9:25 pm (Baseball, New York Mets)

At this point, I’m inclined to believe they’re posturing.

Although they need to solidify their lineup, the Dodgers and Giants aren’t stepping up, and the big money Derek Lowe would have commanded remains in the vault, the Mets appear not to be interested in the greatest right handed hitter in baseball. Sure he’s a bit of a “mental case,” but there’s no doubt in my mind that he’d put them over the top. Wilpon says that Omar hasn’t asked him to at least join in the bidding.

They’ve sweetened their offer to Oliver Perez and signed Freddy Garcia to a minor league contract [A good move, he’s been a winner when healthy].

Are teams colluding, in an effort to prevent the tail from wagging the dog… yet again? We’ll see.

Time is running short. Pitchers and catchers report in 22 days.

In the immortal words of Arte Johnson, “very interesting.”
