Mets Rumors: Mets continue to monitor the shortstop trade market


Franklin

Mets Rumors:


According to a report by John Harper of the Daily News, The Mets continue to monitor the market of shortstops for a possible trade.

In Harper's report he indicates that a club source on Tuesday said the Mets continue to scout the Mariners’ Nick Franklin, trying to decide whether he can play shortstop well enough to justify the pop in his bat — not to mention giving up one of their young starting pitchers for him.

He also says, a source affiliated with another ballclub, who has past ties to GM Sandy Alderson, said the Mets are continuing to monitor the Diamondbacks’ shortstop competition, and “could jump in" to try to make a trade for either Didi Gregorius or Chris Owings before spring training ends.

In case you're wondering , Nick Franklin is batting .300 with 3 2B's, 1 HR, and 4 RBI's this spring. Franklin is a switch hitter..

Didi Gregorius is batting .182 with 2 2B's and 3 RBI's this spring, he is a left handed batter.

Chris Owings, a right handed bat is batting .233 with 2 2B's and no RBI's this spring. Owings only stole 2 bases in 2013 for the D'Backs, but stole 20 bases in the minors in 2013. Owings upside is that .330 with 12 HR's and 81 RBI's in the minors before getting called up.

But there is still time left to decide....

Looks like Franklin's offense could help the Mets as long as he can play shortstop defensively up to par.

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..
