Minaya Extended; Delgado Will Stay

The Mets made Omar Minaya's extension official today.  It runs through 2012 with club options for two years beyond that.  Matthew Cerrone at MetsBlog likes the decision, but feels the term is excessive.

Additionally, Minaya announced that the Mets will exercise Carlos Delgado's $12MM option for '09.  This seemed like an easy decision given the $4MM buyout.  The Mets were not going to find an .800 OPS first baseman on the free agent market for a one-year, $8MM deal.

On the bullpen front, ESPN's Buster Olney says rival execs expect the Mets to aggressively pursue free agent Brian Fuentes.  I'm thinking three years, $30MM.
