MetsBlog’s Matthew Cerrone talked to various baseball insiders and came away with some info concerning the possibility of a Dontrelle Willis trade. Cerrone’s sources indicate the Marlins want an MLB ready potential All-Star and the D’Backs and Dodgers are best equipped to satisfy that request.
Pure speculation, but I could see a deal for Matt Kemp and one of Scott Elbert/Chad Billingsley. This would be comparable to the bounty the Fish received for Josh Beckett – stud position player, stud starter. I wouldn’t make that deal if I was Ned Colletti, but that’s what I could see Larry Beinfest requiring.
