Did anyone else read Bob Klapisch's article on ESPN.com today talking about the Mets' offseason moves and how they should have a clearer path to the playoffs than the Yankees? Well, there was a part in there about Minaya still trying to get Manny from Boston. One deal he was trying to get done was to trade Benson to Texas for Juan Dominguez and Laynce Nix and then packaging those guys with Beltran for Manny. Is anyone else outraged by even the thought of that deal? I probably wouldn't even trade Beltran for Manny straight up (because of his speed, defense, and age). And if they got Dominguez and Nix for Benson, they should keep the 2 guys and help solidify the bullpen and right field.
I just hope Omar isn't gonna go too far with this Manny thing.
