Mets Interested In Francisco Rodriguez

One year after trading Francisco Rodriguez to Milwaukee, the Mets have some interest in re-acquiring the right-hander, Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports. Rodriguez is on the list of trade targets the Mets will consider as they look to improve their bullpen. 

Milwaukee owner Mark Attanasio recently met with the team’s front office executives to determine how to approach the upcoming trade deadline. The Brewers won’t act until after the All-Star break and Attanasio will make the final decision, Davidoff writes. 

Rodriguez, who was arrested at Citi Field in 2010, could appeal to the Mets because of his experience pitching in New York. The 30-year-old is in the midst of a solid season — a 4.00 ERA with 8.0 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9 in 36 innings — but the Brewers couldn't demand top prospects in return given his $8MM salary. The Mets might be able to acquire Rodriguez by adding payroll and surrendering lower-level prospects, Davidoff notes.

I keep thinking the Crew would get something decent for K Rod, but considering his salary and what we sent to the Mets for him a middling prospect would probably be the price.

Well, I’d say he’s better than Batista and Ramirez.

I’m sure the Mets will gladly send Adrian Rosario and Danny Herrera back to Milwaukee.

Well if he takes poo to get then I don’t mind power arm who can still close games effectivley.He may lower his era to around 3.50 if he comes here.Like the Mets did the Brewers would probably get dog poo for him. Herrara,Gorski,or somone in the rule 5 draft would be the most likely scenario. The Mets shouldn’t only just acquire K-rod though.Maybe a 3 way trade between the Padres Mets and Brew Crew.

Padres get:Morgan,Mejjia,Den Dekker,Matz,Turner

Mets get:Street,K-Rod,Quentin

Brewers get: Herrara,Volquez,Rule 5 pick
