A few Padres expect catcher Ramon Hernandez to sign a huge deal with the Mets.Nice to know Hernandez has five or six agents to deal with. That just may make Fred Wilpon's head explode!
There's also news on Brian Giles, but it doesn't involve the Mets...yet:
The Red Sox signaled they could be a suitor if right fielder Brian Giles enters free agency next month. Persons close to Giles expect to hear from the Cardinals, who might lose right fielder Larry Walker to retirement. The A's pursued Giles when he was in Pittsburgh and employ one of Giles' closest friends, catcher Jason Kendall.Looks like Omar's going to have to get creative.
