To the extent that you want to win this year, I'd balk at that deal. Ramirez seems to be recovered from his shoulder issues pretty well and Reyes is such a question mark. If you were simply looking forward, it might be different, but I don't think that trade helps you win this year.
I would pass. I would worry about winning the league this year, and then worry about keepers this offseason. Your keepers will still be very good without a deal for Reyes, and I have a feeling you will need Aram and Roberts for the remainder of this year.
You think Aram and Roberts are going to make or break me from winning this year over Reyes and O Dog?
hmmmm... Im not sure? If I do this... and win this year, next year I would sit with some sick keepers, id almost have my whole infield: - Morneau - Utley - Reyes - Sizemore - Bay - Haren
I really need some solid opinions... every year I screw myself out of winning! This year so far Im golden in most categories ... avg being the least and im top 2 in all other hitting categories... ive done that without Aram.
Thanks for the thoughts on mine. I actually like Roberts as a keeper over O-Dawg, and I like the power of Tulo better than Reyes as a whole. I'm not too sure that it doesn't take Reyes a full year to get back to full health, if he can get back to full health. In all honesty, I doubt that Reyes gets back to full speed this year enough to help you out for your run. If your talking about a 100% Roberts and a 80% ARam against a 70% Reyes and a 70% O Dawg, I'll take the Roberts/ARam for this season, and possibly next. That new Mets stadium has me down on all their players, so I might be biased based on that, but I actually like your team better as it sits now. Plus, I like your 2nd round pick better than a 5th rounder anyday.
Goodnight Ladies! GOODNIGHT SIR!!! Hit the lights sweetheart!

I agree with this in its entirety. Reyes is not only a question mark for this year, but being a native New Yorker and knowing how flaky the Mets organization is, I would say he's a question mark if and until he actually plays for an extended period of time. You're keepers seem pretty good as it, and I agree that you need A-Ram and Roberts to ensure your win this year.
you can't live the dream, if you don't play the game
