Rumor: Vasquez to Mets?


Recommended Posts

Not sure if I like the thought...I think Vasquez has more raw talent than Benson. Bannister is a bottom of the rotation guy IMO. Vasquez, however, has been banged up the past few years.

Update: The Mets are in the mix to acquire Vazquez with Kris Benson and prospect Brian Bannister rumored to be going to Arizona, the NY Post reports.

Recommendation: Vazquez has asked for a trade to the East Coast and would love to be reunited with Mets' GM Omar Minaya, who filled a similar role when both of them were with Montreal. He is coming off a second consecutive poor season, where he went 11-15 with a 4.91 ERA, and is owed $11.5 million in 2006 and $12.5 million in 2007. Vazquez could benefit from pitching at Shea Stadium, as opposed to Bank One Ballpark, but with back-to-back poor seasons, it may be buyer beware.
