I would love to see Cincinnati step up in the free agent market and grab someone at a position of need. It'd be nice to see a deal for Reyes and a contract extension. Or, even better, how about:
Reyes, FRod, and Betran from NY to Cincinnati for Alonso, Heisey, Cozart, Maloney, Cordero, Phillips, Joseph, and Jordan Smith.
The Mets might need to even out the money, but that'd be fairly easy to do. New York would grab at least three everyday starters, one of which could be a steal, plus three relief arms, all the while giving up two major headaches.
Cincinnati would be able to put some of its depth to work here and have a really solid lineup, not to mention an improved closer and leadoff hitter:
Mesoraco/ Hanigan C
There really is no difference right now between Cordero and K-Rod, actually I'd prefer CoCo because at least he's not an ass off the field. Jose Reyes... who knows? Can the guy stay healthy, or is he going to blow out hamstrings for the rest of eternity? And Beltran... no thanks. The guy isn't getting any younger, and it showed last year. Now, his numbers would probably get a boost going from Citi to GABP, but I don't give up that much young talent for THAT package. No way.
