Report: Mets-Royals Trade Talks

May 09, 2010 - Queens, United States - epa02150708 New York Mets starting pitcher Oliver Perez firing a pitch to home plate to the San Francisco Giants in the first inning at Citi Field, in Queens, New York, 09 May 2010.

Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Mets and Royals are still talking about an Oliver Perez for Gil Meche deal. That isn’t news. It’s been out there for a few days. It wouldn’t be an earth shattering trade considering both pitchers are considered diminished goods with bad contracts.

The big news is that there are several other names included in the discussion including Jeff Francoeur, Luis Castillo, Kyle Farnsworth, and Jose Guillen.

It would be interesting to see if they could work out a deal that was a minor facelift for the Mets. I’m not sure that a trade like this would have any major implications for the season other than to shake things up. But sometimes, that’s all it takes to get things moving in the right direction.

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.
