Gil Meche Trade In The Works?

Seattle Post-Intelligencer columnist and blogger John Hickey indicates that a trade could be brewing involving Mariners starter Gil Meche.  Meche was scratched from his start against the Yankees tonight.

Meche turns 28 in a few weeks, and he's a free agent after the season.  He's been mediocre or worse this season aside from a lights out June.  Meche has been awful in August, allowing 12 earned runs in 11.1 innings in three starts.  Often it's said that his struggles are largely mental.   

The skipped start could just be a demotion for the way Meche has been pitching, similar to what happened with Joel Pineiro.  The Mets had expressed interest in Meche earlier this season.

The Mariners are saying Gil Meche was scratched from his start Tuesday because of a sore right forearm.
