Jon Heyman of SI.com believes the Cubs and Omar Minaya are discussing a trade that would send starting pitcher Jason Marquis to the Mets.\

Heyman feels the Mets should send reliever Scott Schoeneweis to the Cubs, who are offering to pay a portion of Marquis’s $9–million salary in 2009, after which he will be a free agent.

According to published reports, over the last day or so, the Mets rejected a deal from the Cubs that would have swapped Marquis for Aaron Heilman, who was traded last night to the Mariners for J.J. Putz.

The 30–year-old Marquis has won at least 10 games and pitched at least 190 innings in each of the last five seasons, while posting a 4.58 ERA, during which opponents hit .261 against him.
