Mets trade Kyle Lobstein to the Tiger for Brennan Boesch. The tigers do not want Boesch, and the Mets need an outfielder. Two years ago Brennan hit 16 hr and 54 RBI with a .283 avg.

Last year he hit 12 hr and 54 RBI with a .240 avg.

This is just my guess, but he is cheap and 27 years old.

Brennan Boesch 's 2011 numbers were fairly strong across the board, but seemed to regress this year - especially his OBP, which was a horrid .285. OBP is important to Sandy. But he does have a bit of pop I guess. Maybe if given 600 At bats he could pop 20 HR knock in 75-80

The 2012 numbers are Duda-esque

A lefty Hairston...

If we had a 50 man roster we could field a whole team.

Call me crazy, but I thought we might actually get something that resembled a real, live major league outfielder.

>>>"Another left handed fourth outfielder. Oh joy."<<<

Yeah, I know, but would it really be a surprise to us at this point ? I mean, we know we aren't going to be shopping at Macy's this season, but rather KMart. You get a guy like this as a stop gap if you get him. The real hope here is the we can move Dickey and get back a legit big time outfield prospect or two, but either way, we are still likely going to need another body.

Well sarcasm aside... Murphy's point is a good one and concerning. Isn't this a move to make a move? This probably Would have been a slight improvement if he at least batted from the right side of the plate. Why another lefty OF bat?

True, but maybe Duda is getting moved in a package somewhere... ??/ Who knows. Plus Duda is a poor defender, so maybe they see this guy as stronger ??? Or maybe they keep both.. All speculation right now.

I want MYERS !!! LOL

Lets hope this doesn't happen. That dude would probably be looked at as an everyday starter by our ownership and management.

If Brennan Boesch gives Mets .260 - .270 isn't that waaaaay better than Bay in OF? Better than Torres? At least as good as Kirk?

If Boesch can recover 2011 form (or close) that would be tremendous step up in OF offesnse!!! In exchange for some guy we never even heard of (4 yrs minors w/ 4.06 ERA 2012 in AA ball)!!!

As an old school wrestling fan, I can see the Wilpons with a wadful of cash, laughing crazily, saying "Everybody's Got A Price!!" like the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase.

Royals. Or some other team w/ something we want might want an OF as part of package.

Could this preclude a package including Duda?
