  • Jose Guillen coming to the Mets?

    December 16, 2003 - New Orleans

    Don't count out the Mets in the Jose Guillen sweepstakes just yet.

    While yesterday's Big Easy rumblings were that the Angels were preparing to sign Guillen to be their new rightfielder, the deal's far from done. And the Mets have suddenly surged back into the bidding for the power hitting free agent.

    A source said last night that Guillen is now split about whether to head to the Mets or the Angels. While the Angels' offer is slightly more lucrative, Guillen's first choice is to play for the Mets. He is eager to come to New York so he can be close to his mother, who lives in the Bronx.

    Perhaps sensing exactly that, the Mets are starting to push harder in their negotiations. After originally offering a one-year deal for around $3 million, the Mets added a team option for a second year last night. The Angels' offer is for two years that, including a third year buyout, is worth appoximately $7 million.

    Guillen is exopected to make his decision as early as tonight.

    BTW, last year was is best ever with a .311 BA, 31 HR & 86 RBI's while playing for the Reds & A's.

    Now if he could only get his act together.........

      OK, back to the drawing board

          Considering Guillen's steroid-laced past and his horrible clubhouse personality, no chance of it happening.

            Guillen has baggage but he can play. He has a great arm and some pop in his bat. Surprising he would be considering the Angels considering his altercation with Mike Scioscia was the reason he left the Angels. If the Mets do sign Guillen, Milledge will probably be packaged for a starting pitcher.

              Don't we need a left-handed bat for this slot?

                There are options out there that are far more appealing that Guillen. That being said, if the Mets are shopping for an outfielder, its a clear sign that Omar is out shopping for a starter as well...knowing he'd have to deal at least 1 of his outfield prospects to secure a starter.
