- New York Mets' perspective: This is a horrible idea for the Metropolitans. First off, this would break the hearts of the Mets younger fans. Then, they'll go into '09, in a new ball bark, with the face of the franchise being a thirty-year-old, who pitches every fifth day. I guess there is one positive result here for the Mets. They will, at least somewhat, erase the memory of '07.
- Minnesota Twins' Perspective: For the most part this is a great deal for the Twins. They'll be adding a charismatic, popular face to their franchise, right before they move to their new stadium. Could you imagine a line-up of Reyes, Mauer, Young, Morneau in 4 years? Wow! However, the negative aspect of this for the Twins is that they don't add any pitching to replace Santana or Garza.
For the above reasons, I seriously doubt this trade will ever happen. As a Mets fan myself I view any mention of this scenario as ludicrous. Needless to say, if this happens, Omar will be my least favorite person in the world!
