The NY Post Mets Blog confirms that Mets GM Omar Minaya spoke to Cleveland Indians GM Mark Shapiro about trading for C.C. Sabathia. Minaya says that the Mets had the prospects that the Indians were looking for. But the Mets remain undecided how aggressive they’ll be prior to the non-waiver trading deadline.

Bringing Sabathia in for a load of prospects would have been absolutely ridiculous for the Mets. They just traded four top prospects for Johan Santana this off-season. Doing it again for a team with a record hovering around .500 wouldn’t make sense at all. It’s good to see that Minaya kept his head on that one.

Sometimes the best trades are the ones that aren’t made.
