Not much Mets news happening today and likely not much this week. We had some brief excitement on Christmas Eve when their was a wacky trade rumor linking David Wright to the Phillies, obviously this turned out not to be true, you can tell by the fact the sky hasn't fallen and no ones head has been called for.
One piece of interesting news is that it looks like the A's will be granted their move to San Jose pretty soon. You can read more about it here. The A's have always been my second favorite team and I am pretty pleased with the direction of the team. They are moving into a new stadium in a better area and building towards ling term success. Like the Mets should be doing, they realize that next year and the year after are probably off the table, so they are trading guys with value now to get prospects that will help the team later. Sandy Alderson could take a cue from his old pupil Billy Beane
