Of course every Mets blog is super saturated with As The Beltran Turns.  We here for the most part have stayed out of the discussion.  However, today's newest rumor has me intrigued which direction Mets fans want to go.  According to Joel Sherman, <!-- http://twitter.com/#!/Joelsherman1/status/96245736345305088 --> .bbpBox96245736345305088 {background:url(http://a0.twimg.com/images/themes/theme1/bg.png) #C0DEED;padding:20px;} p.bbpTweet{background:#fff;padding:10px 12px 10px 12px;margin:0;min-height:48px;color:#000;font-size:18px !important;line-height:22px;-moz-border-radius:5px;-webkit-border-radius:5px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata{display:block;width:100%;clear:both;margin-top:8px;padding-top:12px;height:40px;border-top:1px solid #fff;border-top:1px solid #e6e6e6} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author{line-height:19px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author img{float:left;margin:0 7px 0 0px;width:38px;height:38px} p.bbpTweet a:hover{text-decoration:underline}p.bbpTweet span.timestamp{font-size:12px;display:block}Heard 1 player who could move in #Mets #Giants Beltran deal is LH Jonathan Sanchez. Mets control thru 2012 so can keep or spinless than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet ReplyJoel Sherman
Joelsherman1 <!-- end of tweet -->So here is my question, Sanchez (29)would be under control for one more year and would stand to make similar to Pelfrey in arbitration. He is coming off the DL with triceps tendonitis. If this report were true, and who the hell knows at this point, should the Mets keep him to add to next year's rotation or flip him to St. Louis or other needy teams for prospects? Is there a way that if you kept him could then trade Pelfrey to free up a spot in the rotation?So the question becomes, should the Mets be looking for players that make them competitive next year or for players like Gary Brown who make them competitive years down the road?
