Ellsbury on the block, maybe on the Mets radar?


According to Paul White of the USA Today,  There is a ongoing controversy between Ellsbury and the Red Sox. Mostly the disagreement is about the rib problems that limited him to 18 games last year led to the inevitable assumption he would be on his way out of town.

White list teams like the Padres, who have Adrian Gonzalez dangling still. The Diamondbacks who have Justin Upton lurking in trade talks. He also lists the Braves, Angels, Mets, and Cubs as possible suitors.

In the Mets case, they would have to trade either Beltran or Reyes in a deal to obtain Ellsbury. The Red Sox remain high on Reyes because they can upgrade at shortstop and move Jed Lowrie to 3rd. While Beltran who has had injury plagued seasons in the last two years might be to much money (19 Mil) for the Sox. The Red Sox already have Mike Cameron signed for one more year and it appears they can very well keep Ellsbury for the future.

The Red Sox appear to also have Jason Werth on their Radar as they search for power with the defection of Victor Martinez to the Tigers.
