Manny ios a big baby and just likes attention. He need to start doing some cardio excercise to try to get rid of that gut and stop worrying about getting attention.

This is Piazza's contract year...... With pretty much all the pieces in place to make a serious playoff run next year, I'd expect the mets to take on $26 mil per (16.5m freed up by piazza + 10 more in the bucket) over the next year or two.

Although I personally don't think Soriano & Manny are the answers the mets need, there is little doubt adding one/both would make them that much more competitive the remainder of this year and beyond.

Besides look what Omar did for Pedro's attitude. If he could work half that magic one Soriano and/or Manny I will be a very happy met fan.

You think the Mets could get Manny w/o giving up Reyes, Wright or Beltran???


Whether they can or can't, they wouldn't. They aren't going to give you those 3 players, even if Manny really is on the block. Get real.

That would be a terrible trade. Getting rid of two top CI prospects for Manny is ridiculous.

Any team should be able to get Manny for a song and a dance due to his ridiculous contract.

right. manny isn't going anywhere. the one time they tried it was explicitly a move to get cash to sign rodriguez, dump nomar, and get magglio (and, i think, to add another clunker into the yankees contract/roster mess). since then, however, manny has proven to be worth the $20MM he's getting and wouldn't last on irrevocable waivers again. (at least, not now).

if manny is making noises... well... manny does that. legal sea foods is overpriced. shocker. no need to stop the presses.

Not superior right now but Reyes plays a key defensive position and he is 10 years younger and about 10 times cheaper. I wouldn't give up Reyes for Manny and his stupid contract.

manny's only got 3 years left on his deal and is in by no means a twilight year. reyes may turn into something, but all he is so far is an empty promise. if you're not willing to deal that for a first-ballot HoFer in his prime... well... you wont' get the chance to manage a big-league club. until you buy an xbox.
