Alou Out For Season, Could Retire

Not that the Mets were counting on him, but it looks like Moises Alou's body has broken down beyond repair.  He's torn a hamstring, and doctors are recommending surgery.  It might be time to hang 'em up.  Alou's had a fine career, banging out 332 home runs.  He topped a .900 OPS in many seasons.

Taking Alou of the picture entirely might cause Omar Minaya to hasten his search for a corner outfielder.  The market offers names like Jason Bay, Matt Holliday, Adam Dunn, Raul Ibanez, Frank Catalanotto, Kenny Lofton, Xavier Nady, Randy Winn, and Ken Griffey Jr

Mets top prospect Fernando Martinez, 19, is hitting .298/.336/.428 in 50 games at Double A (he missed some time with a strained hamstring).
