    Then why would they go through the time and effort to get the best possible players in return instead of jumping at early offers?

    The Coupons aren't running these trades, SA is. Time and effort? that's SA's job. Why would SA not be bothered to do as good a job as he could?

    Your thought process makes no sense here.

    I think the Mets are waiting Hairston out. It's down to two teams, the Mets and Yanks, on where Hairston goes next. I like Andrew Brown and I think he could be a good player if given the chance. I just wish I could find a good scouting report on him. Duda still look's like a whale in Met blue.

    How mad would everyone be if Mets sign Bourn and trade for Upton without giving up Niese/Wheeler/Harvey/TdA?

    Bourn, Murphy, Wright, Ike, Upton, TdA, Duda, Tejada

    Santana, Harvey, Niese, Gee, Wheeler

    Doesn't that make this team a playoff contender in 2013 and not exactly out of the realm of possibility? I know getting Upton for a package without adding any of them is slim, but it is possible.

    There is no way of getting Upton without dealing one of those guys.

    There's no chance the above will happen.

    What's BS is thinking that you are getting Upton for anything less than your top valued commodities. Towers is asking a lot for him.

    There is no chance they steal Upton from the Dbacks.

    If the asking price was that high from Seattle, he will probably go for a similar package from another team if he is traded at all.

    I would offer Santana for Upton and get rid of his contract.

    ^That wouldn't happen, especially if we don't eat his contract.

    That'll work. Surprised SA hasn't tried it.

    I like the idea but it would take more.

    Santana plus a player plus $$$$
