It was suggested by a poster the Mets make a play for Toronto’s “Alex Rios.”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=7254 Yeah, that’s a guy who could help this team. He might be what they hope Lastings Milledge can turn into.
Would I give up Aaron Heilman? Sure, why not? I’ve cooled a little on Heilman. Mike Pelfrey is a different story. In thinking of trading Pelfrey it must be considered the Mets could be without Tom Glavine next year and Orlando Hernandez’s age is always a factor.
There’s no question the Mets will need a corner outfielder, and yes, Moises Alou’s injury comes as no surprise. How can it?
Milledge is still a few weeks away and when he returns it will probably take time before he gets his stroke back. It’s almost like starting spring training over.
