BEST TRADES: Pittsburgh gave up a nothing pitcher (Dave Williams) to gain competence at first base (Sean Casey). Omar Minaya received a lot of criticism for perhaps getting too little for Mike Cameron, Jae Seo and Kris Benson, but he added the lefty power bat the Mets craved in Carlos Delgado.
FIRST MANAGER FIRED: Jerry Narron, Reds - With Lou Piniella sitting off-stage to jump in if he does not want to wait for Joe Torre's demise. The Cubs' Dusty Baker and Phillies' Charlie Manuel also are on notice.Here's the link: http://www.nypost.com/sports/66266.htmDON'T BE SURPRISED IF . . . Tom Glavine outperforms Pedro Martinez. Barry Bonds passes Babe Ruth in April, but his body will not let him play beyond May. The Marlins complete a total renovation by trading Miguel Cabrera (the Mets, A's, Angels, Red Sox) and Dontrelle Willis (Dodgers, Giants, Blue Jays, Rangers). The Reds lose 100 games in a year for the first time since 1982 and finally trade Ken Griffey, possibly to the White Sox if rookie Brian Anderson does not work in center field. Todd Helton finally grows frustrated with all the losing and accepts a trade (Red Sox, Dodgers, Giants).
