LoDuca to Mets
When I heard of this deal - my first thought was about how happy this news must have made Bengie Molina and Ramon Hernandez [sarcasm off]. Seriously - where are those two going to find a big contract now? Best bet is probably for them to re-sign with their current clubs (although Hernandez has been trying to burn his bridges with San Diego).
My second thought on this deal was that Omar Minaya just saved a good chunk of cash by trading for a catcher instead of signing a free-agent. Will he used the money saved to sweeten the pot to get Manny Ramirez?
