    I like it, but I would try to get Aaron Hill for 2B. Fits us perfectly.

    Michael Baron, MetsBlog.comThe problem is, Jon, in any trade, it takes two to tango. And it’s hard to envision the Indians pulling the trigger here, assuming the Mets were to approach them about it. As difficult as it is to develop pitching, it’s even harder to develop catching, especially someone like Santana who can do a lot of things offensively. The Indians might be getting an up and coming left-handed pitcher, but they might be creating an even bigger hole by trading Santana than the one they would fill by acquiring Niese.
    This idea is not as far fetched as it may seem at first blush. The Indians have a 24 year old catcher waiting in the wings, Chun-Hsiu Chen, who hit .308 with a .394 OBP last year at AA. The problem is that Cleveland may not think he is ready to move up to the big club although he looks to be ready. The Indians also have a catcher who is 2 years behind Chen and is rated their #9 prospect. So they do have some depth at this "hard to develop" position.

    I hate the idea of trading Niese. I had originally suggested trading Dickey for Shin-Soo Choo and Chun Chen, but Chen is still a prospect while Santana is much more of a sure thing. If Sandy could sweeten the pot with a couple of prospects to get Choo and Santana, it would be a master stroke. He did it with Wheeler. Maybe he can work some magic here too.

    You do realize that Hill is no longer with Toronto, right?

    Stick with Arencibia, Marisnick and Nicolino (or Sean Nolin, since I can't see them giving up their current starting catcher, their #2 prospect and their #5 prospect.) Naturally, I'd prefer D'Arnaud to Arencibia, but I don't think the Jays will part with him.

    No way. Ellsbury is a FA naxt year and he is represented by Scott BoreIntoYourAss.

    Make it Dickey for Ellsbury and Ryan Lavarnway and I'd do it.

    No I like that deal, I meant go get Aaron Hill when he is a free agent after next season.

    I think we should trade dickey for prospects specifically outfield and catcher.
