This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty : The ” Should We Let Angel Get His Wings Elsewhere ?” Edition 12-12-10 »
by Gonzo Will
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve read about trading Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran.
Today’s question: Who, on the Mets, has the most trade value? What kind of player could they get in exchange for such a player?

Wright obviously has the most trade value but he’s never going anywhere and the same can mostly be said about Jose.
Beltran will be traded by the time August rolls around (unless the Mets are looking like a playoff team) but the problem is his value is way too low right now for it to be worth trading him this offseason. The best bet is to just let him play everyday and I see no reason why if he stays healthy he shouldnt be a very productive player.
in his last 40 games last year his line was .295/.369/.504/.872 with 6 HR 20 RBI so with an additional 6 months and in a contract year the production should definitely be there if he stays on the field.

Wright in theory has the most value, but that could be a hard deal to put together (finding the team that would want him, be able to pay him, and have the talent to give up).
so, I will say that Neise actually has the most trade value, since teams would be lining up to trade for a young lefty with his stuff (even with a poor finish, mostl ikely from hitting the wall).

Largely agree with the above—the only Mets with lots of trade value right now are of course Wright with the most, then Pelf, Niese, Ike, and Mejia.
Reyes has value, but nothing like he did two years ago, after two years of injuries and mediocrity, and no one will give anything of value for Beltran until he proves he can play and is healthy.
KRod has some value, but again, not until he proves HE can pitch well and is recovered from injury.
I would say that right now, if we want to have any chance of contending in 2011, we need Wright and we need KRod, and we need Pelf and Niese with the rotation being so thin.
So, to make a real serious trade I would say you think about Ike and Mejia and other minor leaguers for a serious star; that’s about all you can do.

just for Knog, I will briefly wade back into the reyes cesspool.
and please note, I am not addressing maturity, of slumping in September.
I just want to add MHO about your injuries and mediocrity the last couple of years, and the general concept that he ain’t what he used to be.
I think that it was simply the injuries that gave the impression of mediocrity. In 2009, he was playing well before the infamous hammy tendon issue. And in 2010, once he recovered from the thyroid (and missing ST, instead having that on the fly with the mets) he was having a great stretch before hitting the turf in P.R. and pulling his oblique.
so, while it is fair to discuss if he will go back to being normally healthy and playing every day, I personally, me, MHO, not you, registered, trademark pending feel that he is the same player as 2005-2008, and is still looking to hit his prime and peak over the next few years.

Angel Pagan – see my column above

damn, how did I forget him? especially since I was president of the “trade angel while his value may be overinflated, if some GM wants to make a godfather offer” club.

I think it’s obvious the better the player – such as Wright or the better the potential – such as Niese/Mejia/Ike, the greater the trade value.
However, I just don’t see a trade with any of these type players before the season begins. Not unless someone approaches Alderson with a deal he’d find hard to refuse.
I’m thinking we’ll add a couple of pieces – SP/BP arms – before ST and this will largely be the team we start the season with.
