In Thursday’s Miguel Tejada column, I suggested that the Mets might pursue the shortstop. A few other outlets speculated along similar lines. After speaking with my Mets source today, I’m convinced there’s no chance of the club trading for Tejada.
According to my source, GM Omar Minaya is content to just tinker with his team at this point. Benson and Matsui could go in the right deals, and Minaya will add depth to his bullpen. He’ll also pick up another option for 2B. But Jose Reyes isn’t going anywhere, and Tejada’s not coming to New York.
