MetsBlog'com's Michael Baron says that prior to last night's game, Mets GM Omar Minaya said that making a major trade is unlikely because many teams are still in contention.
“Some of our DL guys are probably going to be the reinforcements. But it’s also fair to say that we’re going to try to go out there and look around and see if we can do something that can fit. If we can get all our guys back healthy, our healthy guys, it’s going to be hard to make trades that are going to be better than Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado.”
While Minaya is certainly correct when he says that getting his own players back and healthy is better than any trade they could make, Baron wonders if the team is putting too much faith in their return, particularly Jose Reyes since his injury involves his legs.
