Mets reject Roy Halladay deal?

Are the Mets buyers or sellers? Omar still considers the team buyers in the respect that he is still trying to improve the club. This is on the heels of the report by Jon Heyman that the Mets had rejected a deal that would bring Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay to New York in exchange for Fernando Martinez, Jon Niese, Bobby Parnell and Ruben Tejada. First off is there any credibility to this? Also my question is this when was this proposed? I mean did this just happen in the last 2 days or 3 weeks ago when the Mets were 2 games out of first?

The Mets would have gotten Halladay through 2010 . A 1 -2 punch of Santana and Halladay would have not made much difference in 09 but next year when everyone healthy the Mets could have had 2 bonified #1's in there pitching rotation. Of course the Mets would have given up a lot to get him? Not really . Of course maybe it wouldnt leave the Mets with any trade chips besides the Big Pelf to get a slugger.

I think the Mets would be wiser to get a power hitting corner outfielder. They can improve their pitching in other ways then selling off the farm. They do not need an ace, just guys who can keep them in games. What they need is another power bat.
