NADY?....HONEY IS THAT YOU? OHHHHHHH NADY, HONEY IS THAT YOU? So it looks like the Mets will acquire RF/1b Xavier Nady for Mike Cameron. Now I know that the vast majority of Mets fans will kill Omar over this move. Frankly as much as I'm not a Mike Cameron fan, I thought Minaya would be able to get more for Cam than a right handed platoon player for 1st base. With plenty of teams (Sawx, Highlanders, Dodgers to name three off the bat) looking for a CF, why would Omar make this move so fast? What does our GM have up his sleeve? Some folks think there is a big signing right around the corner, or the Manny deal is back on. I don't think the Manny to Mets is there and I think with this move it may be that Manny to the Mets is no mas. Maybe with the $7mil in savings from Cameron salary that Omar will next announce the signing of Brian Giles? Giles is a bit long in the tooth at 35 but he'd give the Mets an outfielder with some pop and a guy who is great in the clutch and can find ways to get on base. With all the contracts that have expired and the ones the Mets have dumped-moment of silence for the dearly departed Kaz Ishii and Felix Heredia please-so a 3yr/$27 mil or 2yr plus an option year deal would make this deal an outstanding one. http://www.newsday.com/sports/baseball/mets/ny-spmets111705,0,3501142.story?coll=ny-sports-headlines (TO POST A COMMENT PLEASE CLICK ON THE TIME OF THIS POSTING) < |
