Marty Noble of MLB.com says the Mets acquisition of Tike Redman
for the outfield increases the case that Manny won't be a Met. Omar
may want to pursue him, but the Mets are lined up to go forward
as they are. They're also against giving up Heilman & Milledge.
Noble also said he was told last night that the Mets won't increase
their offers to Benjie Molina or Ramon Hernandez. They're
prepared to go forward with Ramon Castro as their main catcher,
& will hire a back-up.
