    Re: Mets Trade Milledge to Nats for Schneider and Church

    I remember when Lastings Milledge was a close to untouchable player a couple of years ago for the Mets. I checked out both Schneider and Church, and both of them seemed to be average players at best IMO. I would have thought the Mets would have tried to use Milledge in a trade to get starting pitching, but his trade value has really dropped.

    Kind of a wash, IMO. Although Mets get a catcher.

    Milledge = Church. Same player basically, but Church has a little more experience and playing time in the majors.
    Who's on first?

    That’s all it took to get Milledge? I would have thought he would have commanded a lot more. Just shows how quickly the market should change when it comes to young players.

    Hopefully the Reds take note and make a move if they get a good offer for one of their young prospects.

    As many rumors about trading him and as little as they let him play when he did come up, I think they have soured on him. Just a feeling but have felt that way for a while.

    Re: Mets Trade Milledge to Nats for Schneider and Church

    My take on the trade is that it is pretty even. The Mets get 2 veterans to help them now, while the Nats, who don't expect to contend this year, get a player that has a chance to develope.

    This must not mean we can get as much as we think for Josh Hamilton, huh?

    Just an atrocious, indefensible trade for the Mets. Awful.

    Re: Mets Trade Milledge to Nats for Schneider and Church

    So let me get this straight, the last two "prize possessions" of the Mets were Scott Kazmir and Lastings Milledge. For those two they got Schneider, Church, and Victor Zambrano?

    Holy smokes that doesn't seem fair!!!

    Church is very solid, I went to the game where he dropped 8rbi on our Redlegs, but I have no idea what was going on in the Met's mind on this one.

    Re: Mets Trade Milledge to Nats for Schneider and Church

    Milledge was a time bomb in that clubhouse. Everyone, players, coaches, did not want to play with him. He has amazing talent, and a terrible attitude.
    Church is a solid #4 outfielder with some pop. Schneider is one of the best handlers of a pitching staff.
    In terms of talent, the Mets got ripped off, but in terms of who can help the team, they did just fine. While Milledge could turn into a star, I think the Nat's will miss Schneider behind the plate in terms of grooming their young pitching staff.

    Milledge's lowered value was directly because of this attitude, so I think that it will have no effect on Hamilton's or Votto's trade value.
