id take trumbo and call it a day
I would die a happy man and take back most of what I said about Sandy...he would have played this whole situation literally to perfection.
With that being said, I doubt it happens, although I think its highly possible we can snag Trumbo or Olt and Martin if this happens
This mindset has got to stop: "Let's get what we can and call it a day"
We have the power in this situation. Rays didn't say let's call it a day after they got both Myers and Odirizzi... Indian's didnt settle for one of the Dbacks mediocre pitching prospects... Why should we settle for 1 player or 2 prospects who are both nearing 25 and have never played a game in the majors?
Sandy has proven people wrong once before I would hope he does it a 2nd time. Be patient, we'll get a huge return.
I'm not sure how i feel about hamilton signing with the angels in regards to trade leverage for the mets. if the angels do in fact get hamilton then wouldn't texas be less inclined to move martin since theyll have a center field void?
Personally, I would still prefer Olt & Martin rather than Trumbo or Bourjos. Martin has the defensive ability to play a solid center field with a good bat in the lineup and i'm willing to take a shot to see if Olt can play a decent corner outfield with the chance to become a good power bat. If he proves to be unable to play the outfield but can hit, he can always be used as a trade piece later on as a 3b. Both guys are under team control longer as well and can potentially fill 2 spots for years to come.

To keep Dickey from the Angels they might give us something Better than Olt and Martin
"If the Mets can get Trumbo and Bourjos for Dickey they would have about 30M left to spend, sign Priezynski sign Lannan sign Brian Wilson. That team could compete this year."
