Did you hear this yesterday???

Where would they play Soriano if it were true?

After giving away A-Rod for Soriano, what would the Mets have to give up to get.....do they even have anything????

I dare say it was an April fools rumour!!

nah, I saw this on rotoworld.com about a week ago. The Mets would have to give up their best pitching prospect (can't think of his name of the top of my head), so it would benefit both teams. I personally don't see it happening though at the begining of the season. However, when the trading deadline comes around, I am sure this rumor will pop up again.

i dont think its April Fools because this site doesnt look like fun and games...

heres what it says...
Rangers
Texas will be looking to acquire a young starting pitcher, like Scott Kazmir, who could become the team's ace of the future. Jose Reyes would be a cheaper alternative to play shortop. Kazmir would lose some value pitching in Texas, with Reyes gaining way more value hitting in Arlington.
Mets
Desperate for another big bat, Soriano would most likely play outfield for the Mets. His value would take a bit of a dive hitting in pitcher-friendly Shea and returning to the New York spotlight. While the Mets don't want to move Kazmir, they don't want to give up on Reyes just yet either. If they are serious about acquiring Soriano, the Mets must part ways with one of their young stars.

Old news boys...

This was a trade rumor that happened weeks ago.... The Rangers wanted Kazmir or Reyes but the Mets said Reyes Isnt leaving and the talks stopped......... Soriano is staying put until arbitration....

I heard that this deal was already a non-starter. The Rangers want Reyes and a pitching prospect and the Mets are unwilling to give Reyes up.

okay thanks guys, just wondering, I was just talking with my buddy and wanted to know if this trade was possible.

If the Mets got Milton Bradley from CLE and Soriano, you think they could compete for the division?
