Thread: Three way deal could send Putz to the Mets (merged)

  1. #1

    Three way deal could send Putz to the Mets (merged)

    Now that would be quite an upgrade in the pen from one year ago. To go from Heilman setting up for Ayala to Putz setting up for K-Rod...

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...2008&fext=.jsp

    LAS VEGAS -- The Mets, Mariners and Indians appear to be on the verge of a three-team deal in which J.J. Putz would go to New York as the setup man to the newly acquired Francisco Rodriguez.

    The particulars of the deal were still being worked out Wednesday night at the Bellagio, but MLB.com learned that if the deal goes through, the Mariners would receive Indians outfielder Franklin Gutierrez and the Indians would receive Mets right-handed reliever Joe Smith and Mariners infielder Luis Valbuena.

    Mets right-hander Aaron Heilman and Mariners outfielder Jeremy Reed are also believed to be involved, though it was unclear who would be headed where.

    From the always reliable Rosenthal:

    8:46 p.m. Mets trying to land M's Putz

    The Mets are working to acquire a setup man for new closer Francisco Rodriguez and that setup man would be another closer from the American League West.

    J.J. Putz could be headed to the Mets in a three-team trade with the Mariners and Indians, according to major-league sources.

    Mets right-hander Aaron Heilman, outfielder Endy Chavez and first-base prospect Mike Carp would be in the deal, as would Indians outfielder Franklin Gutierrez.

    The deal also would include one or more prospects, but it is not yet clear which players are headed where.
    No Joe Smith in this report, but you'd lose a solid prospect in Carp.

    Too many moving parts right now, hard to form an opinion until I see the final deal.

    Still, I don't see anybody I would really hate to lose (so far), and getting Putz would be great. So I'm pulling for this to happen.

    Yankee fans that want Ankiel should also be pulling for this to happen, as it was rumored that the Cardinals were offering Ankiel to the Mariners for Putz. Now that we have that out of the way, hopefully we can make our move for Ankiel.

    I can't tell exactly who the Mets are giving up, it seems to be some combination of Heilman, Smith, Chavez and Carp, if not all of them. I have mixed feelings about losing Chavez and Smith, always liked those guys. But this is too good to pass up.

    If this indeed does happen, I'm loving what Omar is doing. He's basically saying the bullpen WILL NOT SCREW US AGAIN!!! They would have pretty much 2 of the 10 best closers in baseball out in the bullpen.

    Johan is pretty much guaranteed a Cy Young next season if this happens. I can tell you that much...

    12 players, 6 from the Mets. I'm beginning to wonder if this is too big to actually work. I don't think I've ever seen a trade that big.

    Just looked up Putz's numbers from last year, he had injury problems correct? His 2007 season was amazing though.

    I hope we don't have to give up smith, he was one of the only reliable guys in the pen, even if he is a right specialist.

    Parnell could fill that spot if you want.

    6 ****ing players. The other 3 better be fringe prospects.

    Yeah that always makes it tough, but if it gets pulled off, I'd have to give credit to Minaya here - and I'm no fan of his.

    Anyways, I would have to assume one reason the Mariners are so willing to trade him is that he did have a down year last year. The good thing is he still got his K's. The bad thing is that he walked a ton more batters. If that is just a one year thing and he goes back to being the pitcher he was, he'd be a huge upgrade and better than K-Rod. He has a club option for $8.6M after this season by the way.
