Dag Nabbit!

ESPN is reporting (through the afternoon Sportscenter) that talks are ongoing between the Red Sox, Devil Rays (Chuck LeMar is a disgrace), and the Mets (is there no end to Omar Minaya's free spending madness?) for a trade that would send Aubrey Huff to the Red Sox, Manny Ramirez to the Mets and I can't remember whom to the Devil Rays.

How the Mets would be able to take on another $20 million per year contract after their free spending in the off season is beyond me. Minaya is starting to really peave me off.

If this goes down, it will be the second time this year that Minaya has snatched up a top player who Hendry was reportedly interested in. And in case you forgot, the Mets (who were just pitiful last year) are just as much in the wildcard race as the Cubs.

Do you think Minaya's aggressiveness has had anything to do with that dramatic turn around?
