    trade question

    i'm more of a football geek then baseball so maybe you guys can help me out with this being possible and whom you would target. Could we trade some of our depth in the minors for maybe some major league ready outfield prospect? for example a 3b prospect for someones OF prospect? we have wright for the long term and i thought i read in this forum about us having a few extra 3b prospects. or do these trades not happen?

    These kinds of trades happen. You'd have to look for a team with a glut of outfielders. A name which has appeared often in these forums is Josh Reddick. He's only 25 and has already hit for power. I'm sure we could trade some pitching to the A's for Reddick.

    He just strikesout way too much (151 times) and has a poor OBP (.305), not to mention he hit only .242 for Oakland. The Mets can't afford to get rid of any pitching for a poor contact hitter. Granted he hit 32 homers but the Mets don't need a homerun or nothing player, they already have Lucas Duda in the OF.

    Dave Hudgens would work with him to improve his plate discipline as he did with the entire Mets team last season. If Reddick can be a .240/.330/.500 guy then the low average is insignificant, especially considering Reddick plays defense.

    I'd flip Syndegard and Flores for Reddick

    That would get it done, but I would try to offer less to begin with. I'd like to see Syndergaard for a bit in the Mets farm to appraise his talent. But I would do Familia or Flores if that's what it took.

    Syndegard may have a high ceiling but Reddick is young, outstanding defensively, had a 4.8 WAR season, is under control, and has a lot of pop. Not to mention Flores has no position with us.

    A's aren't making that deal. Reddick has significant power. Flores does not, and his bat is still a question at the MLB level. He hasnt even played above AA. Syndegaard is too far away. If you want Reddick you'll need to deal players closer to the MLB level.

    Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.

    That would be a horrible trade. Reddick is not really very good.

    Eww.... Hell no! Sure Reddick has shown power but no way at the cost of a projected top of the rotation SP AND a good hitting 3B prospect. I wouldn't wanna do that at all. I'm not that big on Reddick. He's good but I think a package of Syndergaard and Flores should bring back someone better.

    Everything I have read about Syndegaard sounds like he could be next off season what Wheeler is this off season "untouchable"

    Well Reddick isn't terrible either. Last year he posted a line of: .242/.305/.463 with 32 home runs. He has pop and he's only 25. Dave Hudgens can work on his plate discipline. He's basically Ike Davis in right field.
