TODAY: Omar Minaya said that if he makes a deal, it will probably be toward the end of spring. And it would be for more of a fourth outfielder type (my words, not his).
YESTERDAY: In general, the Mets weren’t counting on 150 games from Moises Alou this year. But the news that a hernia will knock him out for four to six weeks could press Omar Minaya into action. Even before the injury they had been reportedly searching for a right-handed hitting outfielder. And ailments for various other Mets seem to be piling up.
Recently we’ve read about Marcus Thames and perhaps Brandon Inge as possible Mets targets. Yesterday we speculated that Reed Johnson, Kevin Millar, Jason Michaels, Matt Murton, and Jay Payton seemed like possibilities. Commenters added names like Juan Rivera, Xavier Nady, Randy Winn, Jonny Gomes, Aubrey Huff, and even Sammy Sosa. Plenty of options out there for Minaya.
