You remember what happened a year ago?
Yes, the Mets gutted their farm system for marginal upgrades in Kristin Benson and Victor Zambrano. They’re already trying to unload Zambrano.
Are they about to do it again? Being the Mets, they only have a couple of good prospects. Giving them up for Manny Ramirez is one thing, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. So they’re probably going to trade for someone else who won’t help them, or make a lateral trade (killing their outfield by dealing Cameron or Floyd to get Soriano).
Thing is, they’re eight games back now. And while they’re only five back in the wildcard race, they’re also in sixth place. They’re never going to get anywhere if they keep doing this.
Definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
