    Source: Mets willing to trade David Wright

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/mets/...W6PtCnXHrS3CXJ

    Word continues to circulate in baseball circles that the Mets will be willing to discuss David Wright in trades this offseason as part of a complete facelift/rebuild away from Wright and Jose Reyes.

    “We will listen on Wright for sure,” a Mets official told me during the week. “We know we are not going to win it all in 2012. We have to hope the Phillies get old and we are in position to take advantage of that in 2013-14, and we have to figure out ways to speed the process to get there.”

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    One year at $15M with a $16M team option w/ $1M buyout for 2013.

    What do you give up?

    Stubbs, Volquez, Bailey.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Nothing unless the Mets pay his salary. Adding that much to the payroll means no room for a starting pitcher, which, IMO, means 3rd or 4th place in 2012.

    Wright would be a 35 HR guy in GABP, however his D has been on a slow decline and he does have some back concerns. I would part with Stubbs and some second tier pitchers to get him though.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    How many third basemen do we need?

    Just say no. We have other concerns.

    Is Wright a good one? He wasn't last year. And is he even a third baseman anymore?

    I don't know if he is or not at this point, to be honest. I just know that I don't think the Reds have a good one at this point.

    Grandal, Rolen, Volquez & Stubbs for Wright & Cash to even out the contracts for '12, '13 we are on our own. It's really a good fit IMO, he's under contract for as long as Votto also. This gives the Mets 2 and with Volquez potentially 3 building blocks for the future. Rolen is just a money balancer and someone who goes to fill in with NYM's. My guess is given the fact he'll be in NY he'll likely call it a career helping everyone out.

    I think Rolen would just retire rather than agreeing to that.

    Agreed. Rolen isn't going anywhere.
