It seemed odd when the New York Mets didn't use Jeurys Familia to close out their win tonight. Apparently, manager Mickey Callaway was told not to. It seems that there is teh structure of a trade in place with the Oakland Athletics involving Familia.

The A’s are indeed the team trying to wrap up an agreement, Martino tweets. “Barring [a] snag,” Familia will head to Oakland, he says. Olney hears similarly.


We're only three days past the All-Star Game and still 11 days from the trade deadline, and it's gotten wild and woolly already.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Done deal. The Mets got 2 minor leaguers.

Trading Familia, always available to take the ball but never quite so dependable as his save totals might indicate, was inevitable. There is no more useless appendage on a bad baseball team than a closer. And though it might be unfair to suggest that the headless front office settled in what the club got in return for the 28-year-old pending free agent, it sure doesn’t appear as if a bounty is coming this way.
