If this is true, Omar should be fired immediately

Posted: July 20, 2009 in Mets

UPDATE: Looks like this rumor was false, as several sources are denying this offer ever occurred, let alone Omar rejecting it. Other sources have said that Omar would have accepted such a deal had the Blue Jays been foolish enough to submit the proposal. Maybe Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi planted this rumor himself to get the Phillies worried and jack up their price? Who knows, but at least I can rest easier knowing that this likely wasn’t true at all.

Earlier today, John Heyman tweeted (man that sounds completely pansyish) that the Mets rejected a trade offer for Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay. In said offer, the Mets would send outfielder Fernando Martinez, shortstop Ruben Tejada and pitchers Jon Niese and Bobby Parnell for Halladay.
WHAT? The Mets rejected that? I’m hoping this isn’t true, because this is a deal you have to make if you’re the Mets. The only guys I like on that list are Niese and Parnell, but I could part with both if it netted Halladay. The Mets wouldn’t have to give up pitchers Brad Holt and Jennry Mejia, who probably have higher ceilings than both Niese and Parnell anyway.
Halladay is a stud, and yes, he may not help this year but he’s signed through 2010. If you can’t re-sign him after that, you take the draft picks and hope that both Mejia and Holt are ready.
It’s so frustrating to be a Mets fan.
