GM Omar Minaya said he’ll have a sit-down with agent Scott Boras and Barry Zito sometime this week. When? We could know that some time to day. Again, a meeting. Maybe a day or two. Perhaps an offer. Boras to use that offer vs. Texas. Maybe a counter.
Count me surprised if it gets done this week. And, I don’t see it happening X-Mas/New Years week. Logic says early January.
What I can see happening is Minaya re-visiting the trade market, if for no other reason that to tell Boras he has other options.
Other than that, there’s nothing pressing with the Mets. They might tinker with their bench, but nothing substantial on the horizon.
