The Mets would stick him in RF where he'd be a defensive liability. It may be a bad trade for the Rangers that doesn't make it any less bad for the Mets.
As for Piazza, why would the Mets want to exchange contracts with the Dodgers? The only thing that would accomplish would be leaving a void at Catcher (J.P. and Vance may be good backups but they are not starting material) and either fill 1B or RF with a player who is inferior to the FAs available on the market.

It is my opinion that the Mets' problems are centered on the fact that they have too many players who do not know how to hit. They are desperately in need of hitters who can get on base, perhaps play some small-ball as well. So, who are they talking about acquiring? Sosa and Soriano. The Mets are nothing more than a sailor being cut loose on a strange city on payday. You can feel confident that they won't spend their money wisely, even with a new GM. My question is, is it the ownership who insists on this type of action? They seem to be the only constant.
