At .500, the Mets are struggling to keep their heads above water. It begs the question: Do the Mets need to trade?
So, as usual, I took to Twitter and asked my followers if they would want to see a Mets trade, and if so, for whom?
Here are their responses…
kerelcoop said: yes, for Adam Dunn
SundayNightMets said: Totally, I was all for Mark DeRosa but that is dead now. I hope they can grab an Adam Dunn now. They need a bat big time.
nymx5793 said: Yes, but I don't want them to mortgage the future. A guy like Mark Teahen would compliment Reyes and Beltran when they return
dopmmw said: Yes- targets should be Pierre, Wiggy, Peralta, Atkins
NYMetsGrrl94 said: yes, for joe smith. (jk, that would never happen). teahen or dunn.
julierubes said: Yes, not sure who though, and I don't know if it would really make that much of a difference.
BlackMagic718 said: Yes, Adam Dunn please!
DMXBRAND said: Mark tehan would be good
metstweets said: I do not want the Mets to make a trade -- unless they fall 10+ games back, in which case, sell.
ClareLafferty said: for anyone who can hit, hit, hit!!!!
MetsTalk_JT said: I wanted DeRosa, but apparently Omar and the rest of CitiField doesn't...could use the 13Hr and 50RBI..both would lead club
mikexdavis said: Carlos Lee: Hou.'s fading, and he's easier to get (prospect-wise) than Holliday because of his big contract (til 2012, $56M).
mikexdavis continues: Also, he's a righty who hits for avg. AND power, and has never committed more than 6 errors in a season, so could play LF ok.
And the jokesters…
dtmfr said: Mets should get Mark DeRosa from CLE for... wait, he was already traded?? Damn you, Omar!!
dances_w_vowels said: I'll trade Omar Minaya for Frank Cashen. #mets
