    “In Omar Minaya I trust”

    1. Does Omar get his extension now? How can you knock that trade? Look at what ARZ gave up for Dan Haren, or the CWS for Swisher.

    2. I think Minn will be happy in the long run. I think they have minor league talent, I think Slowey , Boof Bonser and Mulvey and Humber could do OK in that Division. Plus Deolis will do fine. Also Gomez needed to be a CF for someone.

    And we kept FMart.

    This score went through my mind when I found out about the trade:

    (I wasn’t aware that MetsBlog had a policy against posting web addresses, so it was deleted. My bad.)

    So Joe writes over 25 paragraphs in 3 posts today, filling up time during the slow news period, and then…

    The biggest story of the Mets’ off-season hits!

    Now we have to see if Omar can sign him.

    LOL Murph!

    I did all I could do to NOT write about Johan all winter, then it hit me last night — this deal is going to happen!

    If Omar doesn’t sign him, he may as well resign — and invest in a bulletproof vest and hire a team of bodyguards.

    Yeah, I think it’s more a matter of when then if

    I’d lay an official portrait of Alexander Hamilton, maybe Andrew Jackson, that this (the extension) gets done today.

    I wonder if we’ll see Johan v. Dan Haren this year. I know we’ll see Johan v. Hole Camels this year! 🙂

    I’m more interested in the Johan Santana/Oliver Perez vs. Chase Utley/Ryan Howard/Geoff Jenkins match-ups.

    Gonna be alotta cool breezes coming from behind the batters boxes of Shea and Citizen’s Bank Park this year.
