Mets GM Omar Minaya recently spoke to reporters in the team’s suite at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Minaya spoke later with SNY’s Matt Yalloff, which you can watch on SNY’s Mets Hot Stove airing at 7 pm.
Minaya again reiterated to Yalloff that the deal with Francisco Rodriguez is not complete, adding, ‘Like all deals, there are things that need to be worked out.’
When pressed on whether an agreement was in place, Minaya would only say, ‘We are continuing to have dialogue.’
Minaya said his focus continues to be improving the team’s pitching staff, as he looks at trades and free agents.
…by the way, though it has not been reported, nor did minaya say so in his briefing, from what i can gather, the Mets team doctor is in Las Vegas, meaning rodriguez will have his phsyical today or tomorrow – after which the team is likely to make an official announcement…so, figure on something official later tonight, or tomorrow morning…
…the way i heard it, the Mets very much want to make real news in Las Vegas, on the big stage, so i expect some sort of announcement, at a podium, tomorrow…
