Matt Cerrone at MetsBlog says that Mets GM Omar Minaya spoke to reporters prior to last night's game, and was asked if there's a deal available that could significantly help the club.
“That deal is not there right now… I think there are 22, 24 teams that are within playoff striking distance. So, there’s not a lot of guys… The pool is not that big.”
Minaya acknowledged that his priority right now is strengthen the team's lineup. We've seen the Amazin's connected to Mark DeRosa, but we've also heard from one team official that they "will not mortgage [their] future" this summer in any trades.
