    Mets acquired RHP Orlando Hernandez from the Diamondbacks for RHP Jorge Julio.

    Per rotoworld.com

    "Mets acquired RHP Orlando Hernandez from the Diamondbacks for RHP Jorge Julio.
    We've suspected for months that El Duque would be a target of Omar Minaya's, but we had no idea Minaya would get him so cheap. Hernandez will go right into the Mets' rotation, probably as a replacement for Jeremi Gonzalez. He's still a poor bet to last 200 innings, but he'll have fantasy value while healthy, and if he survives into October, he'd be a better choice than Steve Trachsel or Brian Bannister to start in the playoffs. The stadium switch gives him additional value in NL-only leagues. May. 24 - 6:13 pm et

    Wow! That's not a bad deal for El Duque as Julio was stinking it up! Guess that means it's highly unlikely that the Mets will give up BP help for Dave Williams!

    Was El Duque scheduled to pitch against the Reds coming up?

    Mets get "El Duque"

    Mets trade for El Duque

    BY ANTHONY RIEBER.......Newsday Staff Writer
    May 24, 2006, 6:04 PM EDT

    The Mets acquired former Yankee Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez today from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for reliever Jorge Julio, general manager Omar Minaya announced.

    Hernandez, who is listed as 36 but is believed to be as much as four years older, was 2-4 with a 6.11 ERA in nine starts for the Diamondbacks. He spent last season with the World Series champion Chicago White Sox after six seasons with the Yankees.

    Hernandez has a career record of 72-53. He may plug one of the two holes in the Mets' starting rotation, which has been weakened by injuries to Brian Bannister and Victor Zambrano.

    Julio, who was acquired over the winter from the Orioles in the Kris Benson trade, was 1-2 with a 5.06 ERA in 18 games for the Met.

    Sunday.

    Nice trade for the Snakes as Julio had been on a roll and El Duque has been bad and is sure to break down.

    Since Julio's 4 bad outings(8ER in 4IP) to start the season he is

    18IP 10H 4R 7BB 27Ks

    Think the Reds could use a bat misser like that.

    Minaya does not impress me much, he just seems to have a lot money to throw around.

    Wasn't Minaya the GM of the Expoes for several years when they were producing so many studs in their system? Or was he just the guy that traded them away?

    Can't recall.

    I really wanted the Reds to go after Julio after he had that bad start...El Duque? What a horrible trade for the Mets. So they traded Benson for El Duque and John Maine. Minaya got robbed.

    He traded Brandon Phillips, Cliff Lee, and Grady Sizemore for three months of Bartolo Colon.

    Minaya is an overrated GM, IMO.

    You cannot blame him for that trade at all, IMO. The Expos were actually in contention come the deadline, and they were about to be moved to D.C. Nobody in the franchise knew where their future laid, including Minaya. Why not gamble and try to make the playoffs? Minaya had nothing to lose. The Expos had nothing to lose. It actually brought a some excitment to the Expos, something it hadn't seen since '94. Considering their situation, I thought it was a great trade back than, and still do.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
