I know, I know--Manny Ramirez's bat could have helped the offensively-challenged Mets in this game. But come on, does anyone really think that this kind of deal will go through at mid-season? Not a chance.
I do smell an Astros sweep coming on, and I would almost welcome it. That would keep Omar Minaya from making some stupid deal that will bring up the ghost of Scott Kazmir. This team is not built to win in 2005--wait until next year has never been a more appropriate cliche.
