THE OFFICIAL HIDALGO TO THE METS THREAD

Trade is not so bad for the Mets. They get a one-year rental on a power-hitting RFer for an over-the-hill RP close to retirement. Weathers had two pretty decent seasons for us and maybe a change of scenery will do him good. I wish him the best of luck with the 'Stros. ;-D

A bum who becomes someone else's problem next year while we sign Ordonez or Berkman. ;-D

Lane had already been announced as the primary starter ahead of Hidalgo.

you would THINK so but with JIMY who knows......sometimes it seems he spends so much time wondering what happened to that other 'M' he gets distracted in his baseball moves. That and always wondering "hmmmm am i JIMMY or am i J-EYE meeeee????

Ok, so we've established that Lane is worth a flier and that Weathers is old. That said, is Hidalgo only going to get worse in NY or keep on doing the so-so? Not too thrilled with what happened with Floyd, so perhaps Hidalgo is dumpable for the aforementioned Lane...

He is going to the Mets where everyone goes to fade away...I'm staying away from the whole situation.

I don't think he can get much worse than his current cold streak so he should improve just by default. But he's leaving a better lineup and a better hitter's stadium to join the Mets so his potential isn't as high as it was with Houston.

Mets Get Hidalgo!!

Postby ABC123 » Thu Jun 17, 2004 1:32 pm

In an effort to inject some juice into their lineup, the Mets have obtained outfielder Richard Hidalgo from the Astros in exchange for right-handed reliever David Weathers, according to a report Thursday on the New York Daily News Web site.
