Mets Rumors: Castillo, Perez, Reyes, Backman

The 63-63 Mets don't seem to be in contention, but GM Omar Minaya told John Harper of the New York Daily News that his team is "still in the hunt." Regardless of what Minaya says, some of his players are already looking ahead to 2011. Here are the details on two of the team's potential trade candidates, a star who wants to stay, and an insight into the Mets' managerial hunt:

Candidates for trade? I suppose . . . but why would the Mets want to bring either one of these guys back next year and why would any team want them? I have to believe that both are more likely to be released than traded.

What you say makes absolute sense. Unfortunately were talking about the Mets here. The only reason Castillo and Perez have not been traded is that no one wants them, especially at their salaries. The Mets could have found takers early on, but refused to eat any parts of the contracts. That is why they’re still on the team. The Mets refuse to cut them and have to pay the bulk of the contract while they play for some other team. Don’t be surprised if they are still on the team come spring training.

Nobody wants these guys and Perez is more likely to win a championship in AAA.

don’t you mean he’ll never win a championship ever, even if he’s on the bench and never plays for the Yankees, who somehow managed to make it into the little league world series?

Please your giving Ollie to much credit , the kids in the little league series would tear up Ollie for 7 or so runs in the first inning 😉

What the hell is Ollie smoking?! If he’s so concerned with the fans, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out the fans want him GONE, and never wanted to sign him to this contract in the first place. And really? Does he honestly believe he can contribute to a championship team…positively? C’mon dude, get a clue.

This is a misquote. Minaya didn’t say the ‘team is still in the hunt’ he said ‘the team is stuck in a rut’
