On ESPN Buster Olney was just discussing some of the FAs to be and they said that Manny's market wasn't likely to develop like he was hoping (4x25 per).
Of course he's not going back to Boston.
Yankees have LF in Matsui and Damon (I still see them playing a role)
Dodgers aren't going to give him the massive contract.
Mets are going after 3 things... Pitching, pitching, and you guessed it more pitching.
If those 4 teams are out of it and you could possibly be in the ballpark consideration at 3x15-20 per would you investigate it if you were Jocketty?
I would. He's from Santo Domingo originally help with the Hispanic fans and maybe help us in scouting/pr department there. Not to mention put fear back in the middle of the lineup.
