Minaya is a dolt, but Wagner is supposedly on his way to being a Type A free agent. If that is so AND the Mets have the budget to risk offering him arbitration (which he may very well take, in addition to his $1M buyout), they'd be asking for the equivalent of a 1st round pick and a supplemental pick. Whatever that means.
My sense is Minaya would ask for quite a bit. Maybe ownership pulls Minaya's strings on this one.
As for Wagner himself, I don't really care much one way or the other. The pen has been a bit erratic lately and we're heading into September 40-man roster territory so it may be worth a shot if the cost is another Negron/Argenis Diaz type of prospect.
