Will the Mets make anymore deals?

Postby bjm97 » Mon Jun 28, 2004 2:25 pm

Getting Hidalgo was definately needed considering what they gave up. As a dire hard Mets fan- are they any more deals we should be looking for?

I know that if they fall out of the race then Glavine or Leiter could be on their way to the Bronx.

I doubt they'll fall out of the race anytime soon. If the Braves are still in, so are the Mets. If one of them goes to the Bronx it'll probably be Glavine. He's been better this year, and that's what Steinbrenner goes for....

If the Mets fall out of the race I think Leiter is a distinct possibility to go the Yankees. I felt this way at the beginning of the year and even mentioned it in my Mets Cafe article. Leiter is a 10-and-5 player who doesn't want to leave New Jersey, is in the last year of his contract and may retire this year. He may allow a trade to the Yankees to go through in which case the Mets would at least get something in return for him and he gets a last hoorah.

Despite the fact that the NY papers have been all over the "Glavine to Yankees" story this doesn't make any sense. I am not saying that the Mets wouldn't trade Glavine because I think it is a possibility. Glavine doesn't have any of the veto power Leiter does and the Mets could get a lot more value out of Glavine (than Leiter) by trading with a team other than the Yankees. This story is just wishful NY media hype.

Can't see the Mets doing anything significant, as they will simply not part with David Wright, and that's the prospect that would be necessary to swing something huge.

Is this Mets Cafe article a newsletter you write, and if so i would like to receive it. I would be satisfied to see Reyes/Kaz play most of the remainder of the season together and take my chances. It seems with dumping of last season that there should be some solid prospects to move for another bat??? What will happen to Wigginton when Wright joins the team? Odd to think about the infield from recent past- mo, ordonez, ect.. and where we are a year or two later...

If the Mets are still in contention to win the NL East by the All-Star break, I can see them making a move for a SP. Ginter and Seo won't get it done. I can see them dealing for someone like Benson. I doubt they'll make a deal for someone like the Unit. (I personally think if he goes anywhere it will be to Anahiem). Though last night on WFAN they were discussing a Unit to Mets trade. Randy, Glavine and Leiter would be a nice 1-2-3. Fred Coupon won't do it, the cheap b@stard.

It's not a newsletter just a Point of View article here concerning the Mets from a fantasy perspective. There is also my blog (shameless plug) where I get to vent about the Mets. :-)

Reyes and Wright aren't going anywhere. I am pretty confident of that due to all the trade proposals the Mets have turned down regarding those two. If Steve Phillips was still Captain we'd be screwed right about now. ;-)

In a perfect world I would like to see Kaz traded to another team (Seattle perhaps) instead of moving Wiggy. It won't happen but an infield of Wright-3B, Reyes-SS, Wigginton-2B, Piazza-1B would be pretty good.

Wigginton unfortunately (not a FB impact but I love the guy) will be traded to make room for Wright IMO.

We have plenty of solid prospects but I don't think sacrificing them for this year is a good idea. We are in the position now to have a strong club for years to come and I'd hate to see that ruined for a half-assed run at glory.
