I would make the trade
I would not make the trade
I'd make the trade if the Mets through in just a bit more
No... (I'll explain more later, since I'm tired right now.)
Why not just keep Pederson and not trade for D'Arnaud, Murphy for Lee might not be that bad.
D'araud is pretty poor and is already 25, and we have a 2B and Guerrero. So far D'arnaud hasn't hit his own weight, he's small and doesn't have any power. He might make a nice defensive catcher.
Pederson is worth more than those 2 players combined. Murphy can hit be he's defensively poor and is prone to mental lapses, he would drive Dodger fans crazy. He made 3-4 mental mistakes in one game recently.
No way on earth I give up Pederson for these players, never mind also throwing in Lee. The Dodgers OF is a mess, the solution isn't trading away our best OF prospect for two middling players.
The Dodgers need to get Pederson up, get Crawford healthy, and of course Puig, and trade away Ethier. Then keep have Van Slyke and Kemp backup.
They're not going to trade away Pederson and definitely not for that package.

This is a terrible idea. I live in NYC and watch the Mets all the time. D'Arnaud has potential but he is doing nothing. Murphy is a decent player but nothing special. What about calling Pederson up?
It's early, but on a reasonable sample size, D'arnaud is nearer to bustville than he is an everyday catcher, he's a headache for the Mets who have to give him this season. Murphy is a good hitter, but has no power, his range is poor, and people will tell you he makes plenty of goofs. He's only got one tool.
We've got a better 2B, who is dynamic, which Murphy is not. We also have good 2B prospect.
D'arnaud now @ AAA so that kills that dumb idea.
We've got better catchers than the Mets and 3 young guys close, Joc, Guerrero and Arrebeuna who are better than any hitting prospect the Mets have.
No to the, even though part one of the dodgers restoration looks like it needs some help, the minor leagues are starting to be one of the best and getting better. Unfortunately, part 2 just takes sometime or some trades of MLB starters for prospects
Sounds like a trade Obama would make.
