I hypothesize that Reyes would then be sent to the Mets for Murphy and another trading chip...maybe Duda who should be in the AL broken wrist notwithstanding [you can trade for an injured player]. Reyes goes home and the Mets use the money saved from the Bay buyout to afford Jose's big contract. Then Wright wants to stay and Dickey re-signs and the Mets fill that gaping leadoff hole. We get the square pegs off the team once and for all and in the AL where they belong. Murphy and Duda should be playing 3B and 1B and DH.

    Sign Shoppach or equal to improve the catching spot. Use the Torres and Pelfrey money on a corner outfielder ($8.5M) like Swisher for one year. Give Valdespin the CF job with Nieuwenhuis in reserve. Keep Hairston and make him the LFer until one of the kids is ready [WFlores, Puello]. Add a retread starter and veteran LOOGY reliever for depth and keep your fingers crossed that everyone stays healthy and productive.

    Lineup: Reyes, Tejada, Wright, Davis, Swisher, Hairston, Valdespin, Shoppach/Thole. Turner, Cedeno or equal, Nieuwenhuis, Baxter fill out the bench. A more balanced lineup lefty/righty and more speed.

    Staff: Dickey, Santana [later Wheeler], Niese, Harvey and Gee.
    Pen: Francisco, Rauch, Parnell, Edgin, Carson, etc.

    This team, with a few good seasons, could contend and get stronger after Wheeler comes up and Santana's contract expires the year after and can be reinvested to fill the remaining holes. And like the economy, once they are rising in the standings the fans will fill the seats and the income will go back up. Insightful comments welcomed.

    The only thing correct in this post is that Reyes won't be in Toronto very long. Assuming they have a press conference to introduce him to the media, he'll be on the next plane out about an hour after it ends. But he'll probably be playing for the Jays for the duration of his contract. Oh, and he'll leave Toronto the day after each season ends too.

    Speaking of his contract, why in the world would the Mets take on that albatross? It was bad when the Marlins made the deal and it's worse now. Forget about whether Murphy and Duda would get Reyes (which is, of course, absolutely rediculous) they're not sending him and we're not taking him back. (unless the Jays send along about $25-30 million . . hahahaha)

    Oh, I guess one other correct thing is that Murphy and Duda should be playing 1B, 3B, or better yet, DH in the AL. But:

    Swisher isn't taking 1 yr. or $8.5 million. Think 3/$39 or more.
    Valdy is NOT an outfielder, he'll kill us as a regular CF.
    Shoppach may be a last resort, but I think you will see a catcher come to us in a trade.
    There are much better options for the lineup than what is mentioned above.

    It's gotta be something a lot stronger than that, no?

    I like Andrus, but he is going to be a free agent after the 2014 season, and has Scott Boras as his agent, I think the Mets would look for someone they can control a little longer.
