Mets 1Bman Carlos Delgado is out for at least 2 months and according to the yammerings on WFAN they don't seem to think they have an adequate stopgap within the organization.
Now the 1st choice is apparently Nick Johnson, and outstanding fielder & the price is right. But he does have a history of injuries & doesn't have the same presence in the lineup that Huff would give.
Doubtful they'd part with top OF prospect Victor Martinez, but pitching help could be available. So if the Mets start asking questions on Huff's availability, what should MacPhail's answer be?
