Hold on for this one if it is true it’s pure genius.
According to Ken Rosenthal
Calling the deal a long shot he said:
“The teams indeed have discussed the framework of such a deal, though not in direct fashion, according to major-league sources.
The Cubs spoke to the Mets about Bradley-for-Castillo, while the Mets spoke to the Jays about Bradley-for-Overbay, sources say.”
This would be a great move for the Mets.Â Then you sign one of the three guys like Polanco, Lopez or the overrated Odawg.Â Overbay had a very good season last year with an .838 OPS and has a career mark of .812.Â In my opinion he is what the Mets could HOPE that Murphy could eventually turn into.Â He is signed for only 2010 at 7 million.
