Minky and KIM from Boston to NY?

Postby joshheines » Wed Jan 26, 2005 2:40 am

It appears as if BH Kim might come over from Boston with Mientkiewicz. Provided the Mets don't move a Milledge, Petit, Humber, Bladergroen, ie top talent. I'd love to get Kim and Minky.

Minaya pointed to the fact that when the Mets have won, they have had a strong defensive first baseman. And with their young infield, that's what will be needed so it makes sense if Mientkiewicz is the player he has targeted. He'd be the perfect fit for New York's young infield. There has also been speculation that Byung-Hyun Kim, whom the Red Sox would like to move, could be part of the deal. Such a move would also bolster the Mets bullpen.

New York has a surplus of pitchers [Jae Seo, Aaron Heilman etc.] that could be offered in some sort of package for Mientkiewicz.

Kim makes 6M and Mienk 3.75M in 05. Almost 10 M in salary relief to thw Red Sox and a prospect for a good glove 1b and a not so good reliever with an injury history? Wilpon must really be raking it in with the new TV station because that is just bizarre, IMO. They could probably sign Olerud or Lee for 2-3 M.

The Mets are acquiring 2 overpaid players? I guess they'll be sending David Wright over to the Sox then, eh? And then Mets fans will tell us how good the trade will work out in the long run :-D

I don't think Kim is part of the deal. I wish he was. It's Doug M. for cash and an unnamed Class A player. Doug M. isn't great but he's a better option than either Olerud or Lee at this point. He should help solidify a young infield.

I'd like the deal, if it could include Kim. Stuff wise, the guy should be a top-10 pitcher. Head wise, he's Rick Ankiel.

I heard it was Mientkiewicz for Ian Bladergroen.

Kim is a very talented SP and could be an awesome closer too. If the mets get him then they are getting a great deal

7. Ian Bladergroen - 1B - Age 22 - ETA: 2007

.342/.397/.595, 13 HR, 74 RBI, 55/25 K/BB, 1 SB in 269 AB for low Single-A Capital City

Bladergroen was on pace to lead the South Atlantic League in batting average and slugging percentage before tearing ligaments in his left wrist three months into last season. He’s already exceeded expectations after being drafted in the 44th round in 2002, surpassing Craig Brazell to become the Mets’ top first base prospect. Whether he really has a chance to become a regular will become clearer in the Florida State League this season.

It looks like it's Minky straight up for a prospect. I just saw it on ESPN (reputable?) and Kim wasn't mentioned.
