Mets having a really bad week

I'm surprised Omar Minaya is able to get out of bed in the morning after the week he and the Mets have had. First Bengie Molina spurns them to return to the San Francisco Giants. Now comes word that Joel Pineiro, the free-agent pitcher they were targeting, is heading for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

The Mets planned makeover is taking a serious hit this week. They had success earlier signing Jason Bay to a less expensive deal than he was searching for, but they couldn't do the same with Molina. And they really needed to get some rotation help for Johan Santana and they couldn't do that either.
So what's next for the Mets? Minaya is going to have to go back to the drawing board and see who's left out there who could help. They may have to take a risk on an injury-plagued Ben Sheets to excite their base and fulfill a major need.
