Mets Trade For Shawn Green

The Mets' much-anticipated acquisition of 33 year-old right fielder Shawn Green was completed today

As I mentioned a week ago, Green represents only a mild improvement over Endy Chavez.  Still, Green has heated up over the last week (.316/.409/.526) and probably didn't cost much besides money.  It's not a difference maker, but I can see why the Mets would prefer Green and his track record. The only reason I don't like the deal for New York is that they're stuck with Green and his age 34 season in 2007.  I just hope that Willie Randolph can push Green aside if Lastings Milledge is the superior player next season.
