Cardinals to acquire stud OF

The Mets just traded Cedeno for Chris Widger and Wilson Delgado. I am not sure, but I would be willing to bet the Mets will pick up a substantial amount of Cedeno's salary.

Do you have a link for that?

Nice pick up by the Cardinals. He'll be starting in left and leading off soon enough.

The whole Met organization is a lost cause. I'd of given up too playing for them.

Including "nice pick up" and Cemento in the same sentence is indicative of a lack of baseball knowledge. LMAO. :-D

Cedeno is nothing special. But the Cardials gave up NOTHING and aren't paying hardly any of his salary.

So it's risk free for the Cardinals -- and very hard to argue that they got snookered. What do the Mets needs another catcher for -- by the way with Phillips, Piazza, and Vance (isn't he on the Mets)?

Seems kind of silly.

It doesn't matter that he's a catcher, the Mets weren't looking to get anything for him. They gladly would have accepted a couple of dead bodies and $50 bucks.
