Mike Puma ?@NYPost_Mets
Also, it sounds as if the Mets may have a new OF addition in the next few days. Front office has been working on something. http://twitter.com/NYPost_Mets/status/280888125725757440
Was only told it's a name that hasn't been linked to the Mets. http://twitter.com/NYPost_Mets/status/280888836651884544
Upton's name hasn't been linked to the Mets ?
Plus I doubt there is away that Alderson is trading another one of his experienced starters. He already said he's actually in the market for another arm now that he's dealt Dickey.
Only from hope and speculation of Mets fans.
True. Which, is totally fine by me. As depleted and desperate as we are in the OF, keeping Niese and starting pitching intact won't find many complaints.
why? why? why???
a)why trade our second best starter after trading our first?
b) what is this obsession ppl have with trading away a young,cheap lefty under control for the next 5 years?
Simple. You trade from surplus.
Our OF could be described as comparable (or even WORSE) to many Double-AA teams. If Upton, who is younger than Niese and also signed to a friendly contract, can be had, you have to give it serious thought.
Don't get me wrong, I totally understand the sheer importance of starting pitching, but our OF exists in a state that could be described as a black hole (Dud a, Niewenhuis and Baxter).
Doubt it. We've been heavily linked to him in the past.
He would cost too much, too...
"not a fan of trading dickey i see. sorry,your not gonna find a friend here, i liked the trade and like wrights contract."
Others have also said they don't like the trade. Your opinion isn't that important. You are right that M O S T agree with you on this, but not veveryone does.
