    Conine To The Mets For 2 Prospects

    MLBTradeRumors.com -

    According to Ben Shpigel of the New York Times, the Mets might consider trading for Reds outfielder Jeff Conine. The need was created when Damion Easley endured a Grade 3 ankle sprain.

    Conine, 41, has about $480K left on his contract this year. He's known to have cleared waivers, and I'm sure he can be had for a song.

    The Reds can't trade Conine when they are in the middle of a pennant race.

    On top of that Carlos Delgado was held out of his 4th consecutive game with a hyper-extended knee. Making Conine a bit more valuable. With the Mets having an off day today.. I would think if a deal is going to happen.. it will happen today or soon after the Reds finish with tonights game.

    If they do get a song from New York... I hope it's "Sick of You" by Lou Reed and not New York Time by Night Ranger.

    I agree, just pointing out that the odds of getting something that could be of use down are the road are not good.

    If the Conine is considered a "young body" and the Mets & Reds need to "Get Together" maybe the Youngblood's song Get Together is appropriate.

    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    It doesn't hurt that Conine in the last week has batted over .350. Whatever we get is fine - he's retiring and really was wanted just for this year anyway. I'm guessing if it comes down, it will be a PTBNL and we'll get some Single A player or such. You can find an occasional gem with those. How much of a prospect was EE when he was thrown in the Reds/Rangers' trade?

    Rumor had it he was the centerpiece, but hindsight is 20/20. Conine is as good as gone if Wayne can get anything of value for him. Hattie, on the other hand, is a bigger question mark. Does he stay to show Votto the ropes and left handed pinch hit? What then happens to Javy?

    Hat's 2008 option is too good not to pick up: $1.85 mm. You pick it up and look to trade him or Votto.

    good questions. if we move conine votto comes up to play everyday. the hatt man goes to the bench as a PH while showing votto the ropes. if votto rakes then we don't have to pick up hatts option at the end of the season. also cantu might get the chance to be a RH option in connine's absence as well. maybe a platoon next season of votto and cantu? that would be a younger and cheaper option for sure.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.
