Mets GM Omar Minaya on Schneider/Church for Milldge trade: (paraphrasing of course, from WFAN 660 AM "Mike and the Mad Dog" interview)...
-Ryan Church is an everyday player.
-Church will produce similar or better numbers with Mets.
-Deal for Johnny Estrada provided options. Guillermo Mota
-Paul LoDuca better than Brian Schneider offensively,
provides defense Minaya is looking for.
-Schneider's one of the better defensive catchers in baseball.
-Trading Milledge will not effect Mets' deals for pitcher.
-Schneider as catcher could entice pitchers.
-Reiterating: Will not trade Jose Reyes.
-Lastings Milledge not only outfield prospect in system.
-Church is under contract for 4 years.
-Good baseball trade for both sides.
