Just throwing it out there...now that Beltran is injured, the Mets have 4 starters placed on the DL (Delgado, Reyes, Putz - I know, he's not a starter, but one of their best relievers& Beltran). Think the Mets might have an itchy trigger finger now and might offer the O's a nice little package to get Huffy or Scott? They're only 1.5 games behind the Phillies right now, even though they're decimated by injury - so obviously, they still have a chance to win the NL East. Not sure if they have any corner/middle infielders that may be ready to step in and play late this year/start next year, but I'm really hoping they do offer something enticing to McPhail. I have faith in our new GM, and I know he'll only trade Huffy or Scott if a very good deal comes along.
What are your thoughts on this? If the O's trade Huffy to the Mets, they could platoon Salazar & Wiggy at first, cut Melvin (or let him sit on the bench with huge wads of money coming out of his pockets) and start Andino at third. I don't know if this will happen, if it's plausible, or if this is even a smart move - but seeing Beltran go down got me thinking. Thoughts?
