I like Gorz more than Lilly he is having a good season he has a era slightly over three and I bet he costs a little more in prospects though.Maybe 2 Mid level+Cash conserderations for him.The only way I would consider a Wilmer flores is if they could get both Lilly and Gorz.

No way should the Mets ever trade Flores.

Edmonds make sense for the Braves although he is a left handed bat. The Braves are desperate for decent CF production with McLouth sent to AAA and Melky a 4th outfielder manning it full time right now. Wren seems unwilling to this point to give up anyone that has value now or in the near future so Edmonds to me is the best out there.

Doesn’t seem to be available though.

I think a Ted Lilly/Zambrano combo to the mets for Oliver Perez with the Mets absorbing all of Big Z’s contract would work for both teams…

The Cubs would get salary relief for this season and the next 3…

The Mets get immediate help this year, while adding payroll for 2 more additional years ( with 50 mil coming off the books soon )..( oliver’s salary next year would be a wash )

A met rotation of santana/pelfrey/lilly/niese/zambrano with dickey and tak in the pen would make their team much stronger in both the rotation and pen….I think dickey as a long man in the pen…

the mets would have a long man named dickey for once !

Would you want Zambrano and his headaches in the rotation, and the Mets footing the bill for it? Personally, I would rather just keep R.A. Dickey in the rotation the way he is pitching. A good knuckleballer is fun to have in a starting rotation anyways.

Agreed. Dickey had lost 3 in a row before the Cards but he still has an ERA in the mid 2’s, right? And he only lost them because of a lack of run support. Stick with Dickey.

I would rather them trade Tejada than Wigginton. Wiggy still has some power and can play every where. Miggy did bring back a solid, if raw, arm, Wiggy might bring back even more. As mich as I like Guthrie, he could bring back a lot more.

I know. I said they got a young arm for him. My point was, I would rather them trade Miggy than Wigginton, if they’re gonna keep anyone.
