As of now, reports state that Omar has a 3- or 4-team trade close to happening. Hard to gauge who is involved, but the Mets sending away Slappy and winding up with either Milton Bradley or Juan Pierre seems like as good a guess as any. Pierre is basically the same offensive player as Slappy, but he can play the outfield.
In addition, reports are claiming that Randy Wolf might sign tonight. They say he prefers the west coast, but they also say that Omar is meeting his agent tonight. As Mia Wallace said in Pulp Fiction, “THEY talk a lot, don’t they?”
And Benjie Molina might in fact become yet another Met catcher. Reports say that the Mets love the idea of he and Blanco when it comes to defense and pitch-calling (and not swimsuit modeling), and the hangup remains in trying to lure Benjie with as few dollars and years as possible.
Finally, from what Heyman can gather, the Red Sox might really sell Babe Ruth to the Yanks…stay tuned.
