Lets use this thread, as a way for us to play GM.
What trades/FA moves do you see the Mets making. Be as creative as you like.
Also, do you think we could/should send Duda to Mariners for one of their young relievers? Pryor? Capps? Beavan for Dickey's replacement?
In the future I think it will be tough to find impact talent unless the player is over 30. This is a growing trend over the years with teams locking up their young talent in the earlier years. Im not satisfied with the next years crop of outfielders, so I dont think signing a FA now or next year matters. Its all about the long term. No need ot spend money just because he have it, use it to make a sound investment.
I would consider Flores and Mchugh for WIllingham, if they are willing to do so. I would possibly move the same package with maybe Gorski and a good AA reliever for one of the white sox outfielders. De Aza or dayan viciedo.
You couldn't get yesterday's newspaper for Duda. He stinks. Everyone knows he stinks. Nobody has a need for an outfielder who can't catch the ball, and can't hit either,
Here's a great trade for us. How about TdA, Snydergaard, & Buck for RA Dickey? We'll keep the third rate prospect they gave us, and they keep Thole and Nickeas.
I'm not sure that would be enough to get Perez...we could use our plethora of pitching, I don't know if Cleveland is going to just want that.
David is going to be here for a while so unless Flores can change positions, he's going to be trade bait.
Also I agree Duda is worthless, what about Parnell, what cld we get from Dodgers?
Nothing the Mets would get from the Dodgers is worth trading Parnell over..
I don't think people fully realize that Parnell is a quality reliever.. The Mets need him he is important to present and the future of the team..
