    You're probably right that the Mets wouldn't do it, but that organization needs a lot more than the next 4 or 5 years of Wright's bat (and contract).

    I got a lot of eye rolls when I suggested trading away Stephenson and/or Cingrani for a big time bat like David Wright plus a bullpen arm, but I stand by the contours of a trade like that. This team is sporting perhaps the worst SS, LF, C production in all of baseball. And as Dusty said, there's nothing in the minors to call up. The Reds are in kind of a weird pinch right now. I wouldn't be mad if they held onto their pitchers, but I would consider it a likely white flag for this season.
    The NYY may have the worst C/SS/LF combo in baseball. The Reds are 20th in MLB in SS OPS.

    Let that sink in.

    Yep, the post roid era is a brave new world. Adjust accordingly. Babe Ruth's dead, throw strikes and all that.
