  • V-Mart?

    The NY Post is pushing for the Mets to make a move on Victor Martinez. Depending on the price I would applaud this move. Catcher has been a black hole since Piazza retired, apologies to Pauly from Brooklyn. V-Mart is a top 5 catcher in the game. Yes I know he was hurt 2 years ago but prior to that he was steady. I say why not go for him?

    Thoughts?

    Martinez would be quite an asset to any team, but what are you willing to give up?? The Indians didn't exactly rob the Phillies in trading for Lee, so maybe you can offer them something decent and get away with it.

      The more I think about it, the more this potential trade intrigues me. Not only would V-Mart have a positive impact on the lineup, but also give us greater flexibility due to the fact he also plays 1B. It would give us another option if we decide to let Delgado walk after this year.

        No they didn't, but they also didn't give up Drabek, Happ, Taylor or Brown. Which means that V-Mart could be had for several mid-level prospects rather than our jewels. We can only hope. :crossfingers:

          Maybe Josh Thole and Ollie Perez for V-Mart?

            Why would the Indians want Perez?

              Another Lefty to replace Cliff Lee. Also, with the firesale the Pirates are having now, the Mets should swoop in and try to get Ryan Doumit.

                You're kidding right? Ollie sucks and on top of that he is making more than Cliff Lee in 2010. The Mets would GIVE Ollie away right now if someone would take that that contract.

                For V-Mart I imagine you'd have to give something like Niese, Parnell, F-Mart and Tejada at a minimum and likely more. I'm not as big on Martinez as some others are.

                  lol, I can't say I disagree with any of this post.
                  Put it in the books.
