PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - The Mets are on the verge of ridding themselves of one problem while at the same exploring the possibility of acquiring another.
According to a baseball executive, the Mets are on the verge of trading outfielder Roger Cedeno to the Cardinals and also are considering making an offer for troubled Cleveland outfielder Milton Bradley.
The Mets are asking for very little in exchange for Cedeno, instead preferring to just rid themselves of the outfielder who has been a tremendous disappointment since signing a four-year $18 million deal before the 2002 season. If the deal were made, the Mets would pay most of the $10 million still owed to Cedeno.
The Mets have not yet made an offer for Bradley, who on Thursday walked out of Cleveland's camp after a disagreement with manager Eric Wedge. Indians' general manager Mark Shapiro pledged to trade the outfielder soon.
The Mets think Bradley could help add some spunk to what has been a mostly complacent team this spring.
Though a talented player, Bradley, 25, is considered a bit of a free spirit. Last season he had confrontations with Dodgers' catcher Paul Lo Duca and the Yankees' Jason Giambi. And earlier this year, Bradley was sentenced to three days in jail for driving away from police after being stopped for speeding.
But former teammates Shane Spencer and Ricky Gutierrez characterized the outfielder as a "good guy." Bradley's abilities are certainly not in question. Last year Bradley hit .321 with a .421 on-base percentage.
The Mets have had an initial conversation with Cleveland, but nothing appears imminent at this point. The team doesn't have the approval of owner Fred Wilpon to make a deal.
"I have to get approval from ownership and get things lined up before we go in that direction," said general manager Jim Duquette.
