Mets will Buy!

10.5 games out of the division, 7.5 out of a wildcard berth but with Reyes, Maine and Delgado scheduled to return in the coming weeks, the Mets are going to make a run for it. "Right now we do not envision [being a seller]," Omar Minaya said. "If we're 6 ½ [back] in the wild card with a couple of teams in front of us, we are still kind of trying to find out how we can improve this team, if we can improve it through trades.". (NYPOST)

This is good news for the Phillies. Omar Minaya is clearly on the hot seat and it looks as if he is going to do what it takes to make this team win, now. Will he mortgage the future like he did in Montreal, when he dealt Grady Sizemore, Brandon Phillips and Cliff Lee for Bartolo Colon? Well, probably not, but only because he doesn't have those types of prospects.

This Mets team is dead. Beltran is more than likely out for the year. Now John Maine is probably done. Will Reyes be able to run like he did before his hammy problem? I'll take my chances on that. Even Billy Wags is coming back for his least favorite month.

Here is hoping the Mets make a big splash at the deadline. It is not quite as much fun having them out of it in July. Lets see them mortgage the future for another failed shot at the playoffs.

  1. By the way - How about Chris Coste knocking in 2 runs in a 1 run Astros win over the Mets....
