With Carlos Delgado out, possibly for a long period of time, it may be time for the Mets to look to trade. The trio of Fernando Tatis, Jeremy Reed and Daniel Murphy probably won’t be cutting it.
Jon Heyman, in his Daily Scoop, broke down some players the Mets might be able to trade for.
Aubrey Huff, who's a productive hitter and also does pretty fair Joba Chamberlain impersonation, could be the best-hitting first baseman on the trading block. And as a bonus he's left-handed. Two more first basemen that the Mets might take a look at would be Nick Johnson, the oft-injured National who's perpetually on the block, and Russell Branyan, who's off to a hot start with the Mariners.
Of those three, I’d like to see Huff on the Mets. He’d probably come the cheapest as well.
Johnson, though a solid player, would be trading within division, and I can see the Nationals asking for Daniel Murphy and I don’t want to see him singling off the Mets for years to come.
