Yesterday, the St. Louis Cardinals landed Mark DeRosa for Chris Perez and a player to be named later. Perez is a very similar pitcher to the Mets Bobby Parnell.
So I asked my Twitter followers if they would have traded Parnell (and a PTBNL) to the Indians for DeRosa.
Here are their responses…
matthawco said: At this point yes, plus i love the versatility when all the regulars comes back, I think u can call up Kunz then...
julierubes said: Yes! He's a proven big league player. Give F-Mart more time and lose A. Reyes and Tatis!
darknova306 said: a reliever who gives up tons of hits for a utility guy who hits HRs? Yeah, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
nymx5793 said: Yes. Parnell for DeRosa is a steal. And we know a player to be named later would be like...an Emil Brown
dances_w_vowels said: No, because Mark DeRosa alone would not have helped this team.
PaulsRandomStuf said: No, DeRosa wouldn't have a big enough impact on the #Mets now to justify the trade.
dailystache said: No
kranepool said: NO!!!!!
sellitman said: Nope
gabefarkas said: N-O. No.
