There is, in me, the hope that Omar has gone crazy and is kind of Putting the System On Trial — that he’s going to sign Todd Hollandsworth to a $155 million deal next month, and then trade Johan Santana for a 1991 Eagle Talon and a bunch of yarn, and then reveal the whole thing as a conceptual art piece, at which point we will all applaud and he’ll sell the last three years of Mets baseball at the Gagosian Gallery. But the one thing that all this is definitively not is conceptual, art-wise or otherwise. It’s just f****ng Gary Matthews Jr., somehow and for some reason. It’s just business — inexplicable business — as usual. It just kind of sucks, if you can bother to care about it.Haven't been here in awhile and I hope no one has posted this in Fanshots before. I remember that I was actually thinking of checking out Amazin' Avenue again and just then hearing about this (admittedly old news) trade, whereupon I thought it might be best to take a few more weeks off. James K, I feel you, but I vote yes. Here's hoping for .314/..410/.575 from Dubs and 20/20/40/80 from Reyes, a 62/100 record, first pick in the draft, and a bemused farewell for Omar Minaya.
