Giants/Mets rumor

Postby Armed and Hammered » Wed Dec 07, 2005 8:15 pm

I am hearing these two to SF for Hennessey, Merkin Valdez, and Martinez-Esteve. Any confirmation?

edited: changed title to rumor as I have found nothing to confirm this at all.

If this is true, where would Floyd play? Rotate with Bonds and Alou? Can Floyd play 1st?

Umm, I'm fairly up to date with most starters on the all teams in MLB, but I have never heard of these guys.

With the Mets in a win now mode, why the heck would they make a trade like this for? I was hoping to hear that the Mets were trading for Schmidt. What a waste of 60 seconds of my life ;-7

Source?

Hennessey and Valdez are two good young starters, but Valdez is also a RP.

I could easily have been fed a horrible rumor.

Hennessey started some last year. Valdez is a big pitching prospect and Martinez-Esteve is a very young OF prospect.

This trade doesn't mkae sense, besides getting Valdez. It's not worth it unless he's trying to free up some money to get Zito/Ramirez/Soriano.

Valdez is supposed to be their closer of the future...i think

Floyd was a 1B before he moved to the OF.

Anyway, I follow the Mets rumors pretty closely and I haven't heard about this one. :-o

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I see nothing on it. My great source is just a friend. Came straight here just to see if anyone had heard the same. Probably shouldn't have posted it in this way. Might change the title to just read..."Rumor"
