E-Mail Bag: Why Haven't The Mets Made A Trade Yet?

Why won’t Omar pull the trigger on a deal to bring in some talent to help the Mets out? I just don’t get it.

It’s not that Omar doesn’t want to make a trade for someone to help the Mets. It’s just that teams are now just figuring out if they aren’t going to be contenders for the playoffs and the market is just opening.

The other reason is very simple. Take Mark Buehrle for example, Omar wants him but the White Sox are asking way too much for a player who is going to be a free agent at the end of the season.

I hope that cleared the way for you and remember to have faith in Omar. He’s gotten us to this point.
