Minaya on shaky ground? We could capatalize...

Ken Rosenthal said the following in his latest article:

Mets general manager Omar Minaya always takes a high-energy approach, but it would be understandable if he was even more motivated this off-season.

The pressure on him is growing.
Minaya, signed through 2009, has been thwarted in his attempts to land a contract extension, according to major league sources.

His job, in the wake of the Mets' late-season collapse, is less secure than it was a year ago, when the team was coming off an appearance in the NL Championship Series.

His recent trade of outfielder Lastings Milledge, 22, for catcher Brian Schneider, 31, and outfielder Ryan Church, 29, reflected the Mets' desire to satisfy short-term goals.

Minaya's principal objective this off-season is adding a top-of-the-rotation starter. It will be difficult for him, rival executives say, because the Mets' top prospects aren't as attractive as other clubs'.

Minaya has been the Mets' general manager since Sept. 2004.
 

I'm not too familiar with the Mets farm system, but this could be a good opportunity to replenish the farm system a bit.

BONUS
Cliff Lee is a former Expo. That fits in with Manaya's Expo fetish.
