"We have no problem with running as long as we have a high rate of success," said Riccardi [sic]. "I still think we're going to value those 27 outs. Obviously, in the National League, pitchers have to bunt, but I also think Earl Weaver was right a long time ago when he said that if you play for one run, you get one run."

Excerpted from John Harper's piece in the Daily News about J.P. Ricciardi.

With all their question marks in the outfield, they need someone who can give Jerry Manuel more lineup flexibility. The perfect player for the Mets is Bergen Catholic product Mark DeRosa, whom the Cleveland Indians will begin shopping any day, if they haven't already. DeRosa, who can play first, second, third and the corner outfield positions, is a manager's dream (especially in these injury-plagued circumstances) and the kind of a player the Mets would want to re-sign for next year. No matter what, Minaya is probably going to have to sacrifice a couple of second-tier prospects, like last year's No. 1 draft pick, power-hitting shortstop Reese Havens or righthander Jenry Mejia, both at Single-A St. Lucie, but it's something he has to do. The alternative is to raise the white flag to a fan base that was counting on games beyond September that they didn't get at Shea the last two years.

Hopefully Minaya doesn't read the Daily News.
