Last night the New York Mets traded Francisco Rodriguez to the Milwaukee Brewers for two players to be named.

Does this trade signify the waving of the white flag, or is New York looking to clear money to sign Jose Reyes to a multi-year deal.

The Mets currently stand at 46-45, 7.5 games back of the Braves for the wild-card.

Since New York will most likely be out of the playoff mix, they may try to unload Carlos Beltran to clear more money to sign Reyes.

The Houston Astros were the beneficiaries of renting Beltran in 2004. During their run to the NLCS, Beltran tied the single post-season home run record of eight with Barry Bonds. He hit over .400 in both the NLDS and NLCS.
