    Remember when the Mets were interesting in acquiring Pestano.. that lasted 2 hours. We have to keep Parnell to have some experience in 2013's bullpen

    The Dodgers are the organization that you can get something above average for dealing Parnell because I am convinced they have lost their f-ing minds over the last few months. The Dodgers are like a woman with their husband's credit card, charge charge charge because those 25 Coach purses look dynamite with these 25 pairs of shoes.

    Joc Pederson is probably a pipe dream imo.

    Parnell is not a dominant reliever by any stretch and the Dodgers have closing options already.

    I would rather just keep him in hopes that one day he can develop into our closer.
    Why is he a pipedream? He is about 2 years away and the Dodger outfield is loaded for the long term.

    Because i very much doubt they give up their 2nd best OF spec for what basically will be a setup man.

    If they didn't have League and Jensen i would say yeah its a possibility but not when they have two solid backend cogs to that pen.

    Even if I am wrong and you are right, you are seriously over reacting.

    Why is Joc a pipedream? He's not very highly ranked but he has decent potential. There's a reason why he wasn't drafted until the 11th round only 2 yrs ago. He's far from being a guaranteed good MLB OFer.

    An already established RP flame thrower coming off a good season is definitely a fair trade for a decent project OFer with no MLB experience, especially when the team getting the RP is in a win now mode.

    In fact, there's a great chance we end up losing that trade but something i would consider doing cuz the reward could be nice.

Castellanos is prob no more then a AAAA player.

    In negotiations you always ask for much more then your willing to accept. IMO the Mets would ask for something like Pederson, Van Slyke and Castellanos. The Dodgers could turn around an accept it or knowing the Mets want more then just Pederson they could always counter with Pederson plus a lower level prospect. Once again you need to ask for as much as possible to gauge the Dodgers interest.
    You cant always get what you want, but if you try sometines...you get what you need.

    Well, for one, Wheeler wasn't even top 30 prospect at the time of the Beltran trade. Not nearly has highly ranked as TDA....

    secondly, i really only saw TOR fans saying there was no way we'd get that much for Dickey. i had been saying for days before the trade happened that i expected to get TDA, Syndergaard, AND Gose..... I was pretty damn close on my guess...

    Anyways, i saw very few, in any, Mets fans saying there was no way those deals you mentioned would happen. It was really only TOR and SF fans.

    For the reasons i already mentioned...

    Why would they give up their 2nd best OF spec for what would be at best be a setup man?

    They have Jansen and League now, i really don't see Parnell having that much value to them or any team for that matter.

    Upton is very overrated.

    Ethier however takes the cake as far as overrating goes.

    i wouldn't mind Ethier, but he's already locked down and for big money... he's owed $85mil over the next 5 seasons with a 6th yr vesting option for $17.5mil.

    Unless LAD pays a big portion of that, i seriously doubt we'll even consider taking a player making $17mil per season for the next 5 yrs, maybe 6 yrs.
