Maybe. Possibly. Actually, with the Mets, I'm not so sure.
Yesterday Jason Marquis signed with the Nationals. Jason Marquis wanted to play for the Mets but he wasn't even offered a contract from them. Yup. That's right. The front office was too busy sitting on their hands, waiting to hear from Jason Bay and Bengie Molina that they couldn't reach out to the one player that actually wants to wear the orange and blue. Jason Marquis was a middle of the rotation, innings eater the Mets desperately needed. Apparently Omar Minaya was unaware he's allowed to make offers to starting pitchers.
Maybe the Mets will realize the offseason isn't about waiting for one player to sign. Other moves have to be made with or without Jason Bay and Bengie Molina. They offered the contracts almost 2 weeks ago and the players haven't even responded to the offers. It's time for the Mets to figure out what they are going to do without Bay and Molina.
There should be a backup plan. I mean, the Mets are a major league organization. Of course they have a backup plan.
Or am I overestimating their abilities?
Let's Go Mets!
