Mets Rumors: Mariners expected to trade one of their shortstops


Franklin

Mets Rumors:


According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY,  the Mariners are likely to trade one of their shortstops Nick Franklin or Brad Miller before Opening Day.  Rubin says Franklin could be more expendable at this point.

Franklin, who turns 23 on March 2, hit .225 with 12 homers, 45 RBIs and six steals in 369 at-bats as a rookie last season while appearing in 96 games at second base and three games at shortstop.

He now has lost his second base job in Seattle with the signing of  Superstar Robinson Cano.

Miller who is 24, had success last season as a rookie shortstop (.265, 8 HR, 36 RBIs in 306 at-bats).

"Shortstop's really my natural position," Franklin told the Seattle Times. "Being at second was a little outside of it. The big thing with me, I grew up playing shortstop my whole life. It's nothing new to me."

Mets Rumors: Does Sandy Alderson Have Something Big .... Up His Sleeve (Updated) ?


Mets Rumors:


Watch the Video, You Decide?


The Mets are ready to strike and have their hands in the BIG Pot for a change. Sounds like the Mets have small moves they could do, but the Mets sound like they have a big deal also in place. Listen to Sandy.. We have options... That Could Mean the Mets will add significant payroll to a budget that has exceeded the Wilpon's Pockets already with SP Bartolo Colon who was added this week...

"I think it's more likely if we come up with a 'high-end' shortstop or someone we like, it's more likely to come in a trade," Alderson told reporters.

Sandy Alderson sounds like a man that has a big play in his hands.. Especially for a shortstop.. or even a outfielder.. The Mets seem they can get a shortstop from the trade market.. but can it get bigger??

Let's Play Devils Advocate for a Minute.. Maybe the Mets can get in a Matt Kemp Deal? or Maybe Be a Piece in a three-way deal to a David Price deal?.... Who the Fuck Knows?

The Mets could look to a handful of teams (Updated) for some answers like the D'Backs, Brewers, Dodgers, Rangers, and even .. Mariners (updated)

Target 1:  (Updated) The Arizona Diamondbacks are rumored to have strong ties to a SP David Price deal according to Matt Cerrone (Hat Tip) of Mets Blog. The Diamondbacks have many shortstops to offer... The D-Backs have shortstops Didi Gregorius, Chris Owings and Nick Ahmed, all of whom are top infield prospects, as well as Cliff Pennington, who is under contract through 2014. The Mets could possibly be involved in a three team trade as been reported and mentioned numerous times on MetsChronicle.com. The D'Backs put Gregorius and A.J. Pollack on the market last year for pitching prospects, maybe the D'Backs look to do the same before spring training ends..
