What do the Mets have that the Braves would want… Beltran… yeah, no matches at all.

i’m content with what the giants did this off season offensively. they didn’t lose any players that had any impact. like randy winn. they have huff to platoon 1st. sanchez all year at 2nd(hopefully). and derosa in left, with schierholtz hopefully keeping his spot in right. with molina moving down the line up where he belongs, the giants should put out a line up that can win.

Who pitches for the Giants? They didn’t even want Sanchez as their 5th pitcher because of his road numbers. Now Sanchez is their num 4 and they have no num 5 or money to spend? Can someone explain this to me?

Knowing Sabean, he probably would’ve overpaid for any starting pitcher on the market, so not signing a #5 starter was a good thing. Also, we could just get Bumgarner to pitch.

Who says they didn’t want Sanchez? They would have had Uggla if they gave up Sanchez which means they value him very much.

one of the top pitching prospects in baseball Madison Bumgarner

there’s a good chance that if he has a good spring he will be the 5th starter

Huddy is a 10/5 player and will not approve a trade out of ATL. His family and his charity are also there. They might have had interest if the Braves hadnt of resigned him. Plus the fact that the Braves will not move another starter. This is a rumor that has zero legs, shouldnt even really be mentioned

its not that they didn’t want him, he is nasty but he walks a lot of guys. he had the 4th lowest avg. it was like .204; something like that. we just wanted to get a bat like uggla and he was the guy that would have been expendable. we have a younger guy thats out 5th started in madison bumgarner who we don’t want to trade along with lincecum,cain and zito who can’t be traded because his contract.

And why in the world would we consider trading Hudson into our OWN division when we already traded Vasquez??This isn’t gonna go anywhere .Take it off the rumors list..

Wast it schulman that said we were done making offensive moves too? either way, it would be nice to get one more surprise move at a cheap price, common sabean show us that you are getting better at this GM thing

Haha, Hudson to the Mets isn’t ‘highly unlikely’ realm it is in the ‘never going to happen, ever’ realm.

1. Hudson took less money to stay in Atlanta and is on record saying that he told his agents to take less than market value. So he doesn’t want to waive his 10-5 and can’t be lured by money to do so.

2. Wren just spent a ton of time and effort (and took a ton of grief) in trading Lowe or Vazquez FOR THE SOLE REASON that he signed Hudson to replace one of them. Wren would not trade him.

3. Wren has also said and has been reported more times that he is done, we have our team as it will be in ST.

NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

Well, it did snow in GA this year, so never say never. Although, snowball’s chance in GA this happens.

To be fair, the Braves are more than likely going to be in contention. The Padres, well, you know…

bwahaha. really? they think the braves would want to trade huddy to the mets?… as in they think theyd want to trade an affordable top of the rotation starter for… whatever they have? i think that rash of injuries last year is starting to creep its way into the mental health of the front office.

yeah Giants are done, looks like they’re going to look internally for a reliever it should be a interesting competitive season in the west

Why is that Hudson to the Mets rumor still circulating? Thats like the Pirates saying they are interested in Ryan Braun

no more Major League deals for the Giants but Eric Byrnes could be had on a Minor League deal

Hudson traded to the Mets will happen…on the same day that Pujols is traded to the Cubs and Jeter is traded to the Red Sox. Omar Minaya may be dumb but he isn’t that dumb. Seeing as how they just lost out on their two biggest targets within the course of two days, you can pretty much pencil Ben Sheets into that rotation…unless they miss out on him too. Very likely.

Even if Hudson was interested in moving, the Mets are in a position where their only real value players all have huge contracts. Who would the Braves even want? Beltran, Wright, Santana, Bay, F-Rod, Reyes, every single one of which makes more than Hudson. Of those guys, Beltran, Santana, and Bay are paid higher than the Braves would consider, F-Rod is over paid, and Reyes is at the end of his contract. Wright is the only player left and even his contract blows up in a year to $15 million. The Mets minor league system is also very weak.

I can’t imagine they get anything done unless it involves sending a lot of cash to Atlanta (either actual cash or taking Lowe’s full contract)

After returning to form in the 2nd half last year Jeff Francour’s trade value has risen enough to warrant being traded for Tim Hudson and prospects

The Marlins’ Team President is David Samson, not Sampson. Otherwise, keep up the good work!

Seriously, as the article says, the Braves already traded a starter. They don’t have enough depth to be trading another.
