With Moises Alou out indefinitely and and Endy Chavez out as well, Omar Minaya is desperately looking for outfield help. However, he isn't looking at a big name player like Aaron Rowand or Jermaine Dye, he's looking for a Jay Payton type player. Names that come to mind are Jeff Conine, Jacque Jones, Jay Gibbons, or Juan Encarnacion. Acquiring a player like this would not be hard especially with a loaded minor league system. If any trade were to happen, it would happen sooner rather than later because the Mets are clinging on to the division lead and the Braves are starting to heat up again.
