An article by posted on August 1, 2009 0 Comments

The 2009 trade deadline has come and gone and once again Omar Minaya has stood pat and held onto all of his players. It’s been three years since the last time the Mets made a big trade at the deadline. Turning back the clock, Omar Minaya woke up in a GM’s worst nightmare scenario. During […]
