I have no faith in Mesoraco being much than average at best.
Leake would be the key piece, but we're getting his replacement back in the trade.
Stubbs needs a new start elsewhere.
I'd do that trade in a heartbeat.
Depending on how much the Mets value Mesoraco would determine if they'd do that deal. Mez was a key sticking point in potential trades last year, and the Reds weren't willing to deal him.
