I hope that's true...his value will never be higher, and we all know he's overperforming. And yes, I'm a Cincy fan saying this. Finally, a spot for Claussen might be a reality. ;-D


true true ....


but come to think of it ...

It actually sounds like a Mets trade ya know ...? ;-7

I am not sure if it's against the Cafe rules. I will do that until someone tells me to stop. I never really thought about. ;-)

My prediction: Ramon Ortiz will be a Met soon.

I hope you are right Urge. Having Ortiz would be a better option IMO than Wilson or Lidle (who can be awful at times). Benson would be nice if the Mets could sign him long term. Even if they can't sign Benson long term it would be a deal that management would make. While I like Wiggy and agree that his fantasy value is minimal he is a hard nosed player. I sure hope Wright is the real deal at the major league level.

Hm...

So many possibilities...

TreeRucker, what are you talking about?

I don't like Benson, but then again, no real quality pitcher is on the trade market this season. I could plausibly see Leiter being traded, no matter how much I like him. We've probably made a couple of offers for Zito, but Beane's the best in the majors (by miles) and we'll probably get screwed out of multiple players/prospects if we go for Zito.

Honestly? I've no idea what we should do.

i think its far more likely that the mets trade away some vets (leiter, trachsel, floyd), than they start bringing people in. they dont really have a shot at the playoffs, far too many holes.

I agree and disagree. If the Mets make any major moves I think they should be made in preparation for next year. The Mets can field a pretty solid team next year and be a contender.

But the Mets do have a shot at the playoffs because the NL East is up for grabs. I just don't think I would sacrifice anything and just take my chances with what we have.

I hear that Scioscia and management have no interest in dealing Ortiz (especially with the play/health of Colon/Washburn). At least Hidalgo has been a monster so far!!!
