Even though the Mets won today 4-0 and actually won a series the Mets manager said volumes when he said nothing about Roy Oswalt going to the Phillies.
Manager Jerry has been lobbing for another arm to go with Johan Santana and was asked as per Adam Rubin"if he was a little jealous of the Oswalt acquisition, Manuel just smiled, patted the inquisitor on the arm and walked away."
What else can be said. The Mets just didnt feel like giving up a pitcher like Niese was not worth getting a star like Oswalt. Guess the Mets brass feel this season is lost. Saying and doing nothing really speaks volumes.
