Bruce Levine says the team involved in this supposed trade, is the Mets, which fits with a New York Post speculation that they’re interested in LaTroy Hawkins. By my estimation that makes the power-hitting left-hander outfielder reportedly heading our way Cliff Floyd. The prospects they’re scouting are, apparently, from Peoria. Hands off Eric Patterson! In fact, hands off LaTroy if all you’re offering is Cliff Floyd, whose second home is the disabled list. We’re not so short of outfielders that we need to sacrifice the pitcher that remains our best reliever plus a whole plentitude of other talent for Cliffy and a Mets reliever.
If the Cubs wouldn't take Floyd for Eric Patterson and Hawkins they would truly deserve to blow as much as they do. Hahahahahaaaa.
No way would the Mets offer their best hitter for Give-it-up-Latroy and a prospect that isn't even a top ten in the Cubbies system. They would be better suited to pay Graves 5 mil.
