Several Reasons The Mets Should Be Buyers On The Trade Deadline

   Omar Minaya has made a name for himself with New York sports fans, especially after acquiring Johan Santana from the Twins.

But recently he has been praised for his work with the coaching staff of the Mets. He's turned them from a .500 team into  a team with a newly acquired swagger that can take them far.

Since last week they've come from seven games behind the Phillies into a tie with Florida for second place in the division, 1.5 games behind Philly.

That's the reason  the Mets should acquire some role players during the trade deadline. Because with the current team featuring oft-injured starters and a six game win streak, they can only stay behind Philly.

Now I think some players that should be available at the trade deadline include Rockies outfielder Matt Holliday, Mariners pitcher Erik Bedard, recently released Richie Sexson, Rays outfielder Cliff Floyd, and finally, the much hated Barry Bonds.

Though the Mets need some more "umph" in their lineup. I think that these players should provide that in the long haul.
