NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Mets have given general manager
Omar Minaya a new contract that runs through the 2012 season. The contains club options covering 2013 and 2014. Minaya became general manager in 2004 and was signed to a five-year deal. The Mets made it to Game 7 of the NL championship series in 2006 but were eliminated from postseason contention on the last day of the regular season in 2007 and this year.
