Omar Minaya admits the Mets are talking trade, and one interesting rumor surfaced late last night. Milwaukee, with outfielder Corey Hart coming to the Mets for pitcher John Maine. Makes for interesting winter meetings reading on Day One of the winter meetings, but that’s all it is.
The Mets are so thin at starting pitching, and with John Maine pitching well enough at the end of last season to ease concerns about his health, there’s no way they are dealing him at this stage. Bats are always easier to acquire than power arms and there’s an upside to Maine.
I wouldn’t make this deal for that reason. How about you?
