Mets makes deals

The New York Mets picked up pitchers Oliver Perez and Roberto Hernandez from Pittsburgh in exchange for outfielder Xavier Nady.

The Mets will also be without Duaner Sanchez for an extended period (likely the rest of the year) after Sanchez suffered a separated shoulder in a taxicab accident in Miami.

And as Ken reported in the comments, the Mets then flipped Perez and Heath Bell to the Padres for Scott Linebrink.

Or maybe not as it seems that Linebrink is staying in San Diego.

I've been watching far too much of ESPNnews for my own good.

They also shipped Perez and Heath Bell to San Diego for Scott Linebrink.

Much to the dismay of everyone, this deal for Linebrink appears now not to be true.


Peterson will instead attempt to break his Zambrano record of a 10-minute fix with Oliver Perez.

Poor Xavier Nady. He's got about as much chance with Jim Tracy as (insert appropriate "no chance" metaphor here).

He's got about as much chance as I do trying to win the Miss Universe pageant.

O.K., I guess that works.

He's got about as much chance as Jason Phillips does beating Stephen Hawking in a 100-meter dash.

This evening. Omar Minaya said on WFAN that they still aren't sure how long Sanchez will be out. He said it depends upon whether or not the shoulder requires surgery, and they need to wait a couple of days before deciding on that. If it doesn't need surgery, he may be back late this season.

Omar also said that the Mets were talking to someone yesterday about a big name pitcher, but talks broke down. They also worked to keep the Sanchez story under wraps today while they were negotiating with the Pirates (originally, they'd only inquired about Perez), for fear it would drive the price up.

Um, "This evening,".

We really need an edit function. Or a grammar checker.

Okay, two years ago, the idea of Perez and Jake Peavy in the same rotation might have caused me to think about moving to San Diego just to witness the victory parades. Funny how times change.
