I don't understand why people are talking about it as if it could happen. The Mets aren't this stupid.
Fair enough...but I don't see why people are acting like this CAN'T happen. If A-Rod and that contract can be moved, a deal like this proposal can be pulled off. Never say never.
Besides, just playing Devil's Advocate from the Mets' perspective, they'd get Manny whom Minaya has long coveted and have Milledge on the way up to plug into CF. Plus after his down year some people might just be soured enough on Beltran to move him.
Nobody's saying it will happen but nobody should be saying it won't either. You just don't know.
