Baez may be traded

Postby Havok1517 » Sun Feb 27, 2005 3:49 am

[quote]Rotochamps.com Danys Baez, TAM - Feb 26, 2005 -
1:51 pm The Mets, looking for a setup man, have asked the Devil Rays about closer Danys Baez. [/quote]


Then who closes for TB? Colome? Carter? Travis Harper? Seth McClung? Chad Orvella? They trade for somebody?

I say Colome steps up.

[quote] Baez might be trade bait as the Rays try to fill their holes, in which case Colome would step up. He finally harnessed some control over his 100 mph fastball to register a 40:18 K:BB in 41.3 IP in 2004 and is someone to watch over a full 70+ IP this year. He sat out the final three weeks of last year with shoulder inflammation, but threw pain-free in winter ball. Carter, who was deposed as closer by Baez, barely strikes anyone out and can be skipped in the fantasy world. Harper fares better but has little chance to pick up any stray saves. McClung, a top prospect and closer-of-the-future designee, has returned from 2003 Tommy John surgery and could be headed either to set-up or the rotation. Orvella recorded 117 K in 74 minor league innings last year on the way from Single-A to Triple-A. Whether he makes the roster or stays in Triple-A for opening day, this kid's on his way[/quote]

Crap, I have Baez in a couple leagues to be a solid closer :-o . As a setup man his ratios and Ks aren't good enough to be on a roster. Hopefully this is just a wild rumor.

If it's any consolation to you, CubsFan, Minaya has denied there is any interest on the Mets' part. :-°

If this trade does come to pass, how many games will it take for Looper's hold on the closer job to becomes in question?

I think Looper is highly thought of by the Mets management. He has IMO one of the safest jobs on the team
