Minaya Places Posada On Top
The New York Daily News reports that Mets' general manager Omar Minaya has placed catcher Jorge Posada on the top of his free-agent list. Jorge seems to get a 3-year deal worth $40M from the Yankees, but will likely wait until November 13th to get an opportunity to communicate with other teams. If Minaya comes out and blows Posada away with an offer, the Mets will be mighty good next season. Upgrading at catcher is the only position that could be steadily improved on the ball-club, so why not get one that has to potential to hit .300 with 20HRand 85RBI?
