That would be crazy..
They said for J.P Arenciabia
I predict RA gets traded in a 3 team deal. Something like RA to a "win now" situation like Dodgers or Jays, Dee Brown type goes to a prospect deep team like Pitt or KC, and Mets get a couple big time prospects. Throw in some peripheral players (90% of Mets current roster) and it's done.
^Dickey and I only saw for a second I'm posting on my phone when I get home ill see if I can get a link.
Guys there is no trade. The teams are talking and those are the names the Blue Jays probably offered or something like that. No one is reporting anything.
At 11:00 PM EST the Mets will be announcing that they have nothing to announce.
I could see jpa for duda but I'm not big on jpa. Would rather have olivo.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- In dire need of late-inning bullpen help, the Mets have pursued Cleveland Indians right-hander Vinnie Pestano during the winter meetings, according to a major league source.
Pestano, 27, went 3-3 with a 2.57 ERA in 70 relief appearances last season while utilizing a solid sinker. He has only slightly more than two years of major league service time -- meaning he is still under control for four years and not yet even eligible for arbitration.
A source indicated the Mets also have spoken with the Tampa Bay Rays about 36-year-old right-hander Joel Peralta, but have found the asking price too high. Peralta is signed at $3 million per season through 2014, then has a series of team options.
The Mets also have been trying to engage the Kansas City Royals about bullpen pieces, but have not made headway.
