DateQuestionAnswer
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)In today's article you conclude that only the Phillies' own ineptness can save the Mets, but if you were Omar Minaya would you be looking to deal for reinforcements to try to save 2009? Or waiting and seeing, thinking that that could be a wasted effort, or maybe praying that the team can stay close until guys come off the DL?
(mglick0718 from Oakland)
I don't know how much ammunition he has to trade. When I talked about the Angels, I tried to show that having that one extra piece in Willie Aikens really made a difference for them that year. The problem is, the Mets need more than one extra piece. If they get one, they might be able to win a few extra games on the margins now, stay close, and then make a run in the second half, but that assumes everyone comes back healthy and productive. That seems like a big if just now. (Steven Goldman)
