The deal for money and Floyd that the Mets supposedly turned down is bogus. Made no sense for Boston and the Mets would have jumped on it. This deal is doomed to die just like it did the first time around.
Matsui is not going anywhere. The Mets don't want to trade him but on top of that he has a no-trade clause for his entire contract. According to one beat reporter he has no plans to waive it.
A 1B would be nice and Mientkiewicz might be the best shot. The Mariners are determined to overpay for Sexson and Delgado wants huge money. There are also rumors he doesn't want to play in Shea for fear it will hurt his numbers.
Floyd is like Rey Ordonez, Part II. He sealed his fate when he made those comments. The Mets could do worse than Floyd so hopefully they tread carefully. Pee-Hands Alou is not the answer, luckily it appears he does not want to play in NY. Something about the death of his uncle.
Everything is pointing to the Mets being bigger players in the Beltran sweepstakes than anyone imagined.

Not that I think the Mets will win because the Astros have to be considered the favorites and Detroit is expected to make a big push. The Tigers could be the team to come out of nowhere and land him because, depending on how much they are willing to increase payroll, they could have the most financial flexibility of any of the interested teams.
