Is it just me, or does it seem like just about everyone on the New York Mets is on the trading block? I can't recall so many big name players from one team being on the block this early in the season.
Now, the Mets aren't exactly tearing it up, but at 23-26, they haven't been all that awful either. But given the situation regarding the team's ownership and the fact that Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is continuing to look at ways to cut payroll, it isn't all that surprising that New York's entire roster is up for grabs.
The Mets aren't the only team in trouble, though.
San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey has been diagnosed with a broken fibula and a severely sprained ankle after being involved in a collision at the plate on Wednesday night, and is expected to miss at least two months. Needless to say, the Giants will be exploring all options in terms of replacing their young stud backstop.
Trade talk around the league is continuing to pick up as we make our way into the summer months. The contenders are starting to separate themselves from the pretenders, meaning a few teams might be willing to deal soon.
Here is the latest on the Mets, Giants and a few additional trade rumors.
