Will Benitez be traded?

Highly similar situation to Urbina. What do you guys think about Benitez this year, particularly the logo on his uniform.

Any Benitez trade will likely increase his fantasy value, since I don't think he'll be a setup man wherever he goes, and the Mets are dreadful

The word in NY is that San Fransisco is interested in a closer, so Worrell can go back to setting up. Their top choices were Urbina and Benitiez. If Urbina goes to the Yanks as reported, then they may make a hard push for Benitez - great news for Benitez owners, crappy news for Worrell owners who thought they had hit paydirt when Nen went down for the year.

There is no doubt that Armando Benitez will be traded by the deadline. He is a free agent at the end of the season and the Mets are going nowhere and are looking to stockpile some young talent.

Anyone in contention who needs a closer is a potential trade partner for the Mets. I've heard rumblings about the Yankees, Giants, Cardinals, and Red Sox all being interested. Everywhere but across town Benitez would step in as the closer.

Postby cddyson » Thu Jun 12, 2003 7:04 pm

...Who will get the save opps. if/when Benitez exits NY? As far as I know, no one else has a save for them but Armando. Anyone have thoughts on who might get the call?
