Since nothing is happening in Yankeeland.
Having lost out on Jorge Posada, the Mets are wasting no time in trying to close a deal with Yorvit Torrealba, and it looks like an agreement could be struck by the end of this week.
General manager Omar Minaya, spurned by Posada’s decision to return to the Yankees late Monday, contacted Torrealba’s agent yesterday with the intent of moving ahead quickly, according to a National League official familiar with the situation.
...The aggressive push for Torrealba is the result of a thin market for catchers, and the Mets, if backed into a corner, do not want to be forced to pay what they believe is an inflated price for Paul Lo Duca. Minaya had stayed in touch with Lo Duca’s agent early in the process, but those talks cooled once the Mets GM turned his attention to Torrealba.
