    i think texas likes andrus and teagarden alot (more than salty) so i wouldn't expect either of them dealt. but brignac is a definite possibility since tampa took beckham 1st in this years draft with the idea that he'd be their ss of the future.

    a few other ss's that could be available are oscar tejada from boston, chris nelson and hector gomez from colorado and marcus lemon from texas.

    Only thing about Andrus is they just gave Michael Young a big deal. They do like Teagarden better than Salty, but I think they like Ramirez better than Teagarden.

    i think i remember reading somewhere that they planned to eventually move young to another position (think it was 3rd).

    he's just one of the few i mentioned who i thought could be available. shotstop is one of the better positions to target simply cuz they can be moved to other positions easier if it's needed.

    I doubt FMart is available, but I would love to get my hands on him. He is going to be pretty good. Salome is someone who crossed my mind, but I figured the Crew would keep him so thats why I went with Lucroy instead. Good list.

    Thanks Doug. Yeah I'm with you here FM and Salome aren't real likely but there is enough possibility there to warrant asking about them.

    Yeah I know Dan but with time passing and pressure mounting on the Mets to make the playoffs already who knows? For say BP we might be able to put some kind of deal together that works for both teams. Not that I wanna deal BP but he's someone that the Mets could fill a major hole with both from a talent and swagger perspective both of which I believe they need.

    But bottom line is ya never know until you ask, right?
