Mets Trade Schoenweiss, Cash To D-Backs

The Mets continued their demolition of the 2008 bullpen by trading Scott Schoenweiss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Mets threw in $1.6 million of the $3.6 million that Schoenweiss is owed for 2009 in exchange for righty Connor Robertson.

Robertson is 27 years old and spent most of 2008 in Triple-A. Even if he never makes one appearance in the majors this will end up as a plus trade for the Mets unloading Schoenweiss. He’s been extremely unpopular at Shea, with good reason, and never justified the 3-year/$9 million deal that he signed after the 2006 season.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
