All that talk about ex-GM Omar Minaya scoring another job with the Mets might actually be real.

According to Ian Belgey of ESPN New York, Minaya plans to sit down with new general manager Sandy Alderson sometime after the New Year to discuss what role he could fit in the organization.

Minaya has also drawn interest from the Diamondbacks’ front office and may have a few other offers on the table.

He is still owed $1.1 million annually over the next two years via his contract with the Mets and he can take his time finding a favorable gig.

“He and I have been friends for a long time,” Alderson said of Minaya on Friday. “I have great respect for him as a baseball person. There’s always room for somebody with his capabilities.”

Minaya was canned in October after the Mets finished the 2010 season with a 79-83 record.

    Weren’t the Knicks looking for a general manager recently?
