Ken Davidoff reports in today’s Newsday that the Mets may not be so hot on signing Alex Rodriguez. When asked about the possibility of signing ARod, Omar Minaya said “We’re very happy with Jose Reyes. We’re very happy with David Wright. We’ve got two of the best young players at those positions in the game.” Davidoff says that the Mets will focus on pitching. Mark Hale reiterates this point in today’s New York Post quoting Minaya as saying “We’re very happy with Jose Reyes, we’re very happy with David Wright and I don’t consider that a position of need.”
Meanwhile, Hale quotes an MLB team official as saying “Depending on David Wright’s true desire to move, I kind of wouldn’t mess with him”. I agree and I think Minaya does too so don’t get carried away with dreams of ARod in a Mets uniform.
