Mets May Have Illegally Viewed Guerrero's Records: The New York Post, via, is reporting that the Mets may have reviewed the medical records of Vladimir Guerrero, the free agent outfielder that ultimately signed with the Angels, during the team's negotiations with the player. If so, this would violate the league's collective bargaining agreement, which allows teams to speak with doctors, but not review medical records, without a player's consent. The exception to this is a trade situation, which free agency is not. The Player's Association will decide in a few days whether it will choose to file a grievance in the matter.
