This got my attention today over in the Seattle Times . Now I do agree the Mets are looking for some help but of course at what expense.
They mention 2 guys I would not give up to rent Lee. Angel Pagan and Jenrry Mejia. Mejia just went down to Binghamton to stretch out into a starter. Pagan has been awesome with Beltran out. There is no way Pagan can be dealt since there is no telling what Beltran will be like if or when he returns. Having Pagan in the lineup behind Reyes has been a lot of fun to watch. Even if Beltran comes back we will see Pagan in rightfield sometimes since Frenchy is pretty streaky and if not for his arm probably they would just have him be the right fielder.
Now to rent Lee for 2 months would be great but lets just stick to some prospects. If the price doesn’t come down let him go to the Twins. As long as he doesn’t wind up in the National League we can live with not getting Lee.
