    Benson to Orioles for Julio and Maine

    Mets get Jorge Julio and John Maine. Orioles get Kris Benson. I personally think the Mets got raped in this deal.

    Benson is suddenly a great pitcher now? We need someone in the rotation who's not going to turn to jelly in the 2nd half... Heilman's better in the rotation and I think it's part of a bigger move down the line

    I tend to agree. I don't like Benson at all, but I do wonder if the Mets could have gotten more than Julio in return. I do think that Julio can be a fine pitcher for the Mets though. The switch from Camden to Shea should be very helpful for him.

    they got a AAA prospect in the deal as well. i really hope they are going to go after another front-line starter now though. i don't feel confident with the starting pitching as it is right now.

    Pedro
    Glavine
    Zambrano
    Trachsel
    Heilman

    Not bad. I actually kind of like Zambrano. If he can get those walks down, he should be a very good pitcher. I don't like Trachsel at all and I like Heilman a lot.

    Who would pitch if one of those guys goes down as of now?
