Why in the world would the Mets trade for an outfielder who is old (he’s 35 now), bad and getting worse? The answer isn’t one Mets fans want to hear.

Perhaps with Bay, David Wright and a plethora of other stars who are now presumably healthy from a vast number of aches and pains, the Mets will be able to finally do what most have expected them to do for the last 3 or 4 years; contend.

It’s understandable why Cashman figured he would take another shot on Vazquez, given the outstanding year he just had in Atlanta.

So the Yankees are considering a trade for Curtis Granderson. All they have to give up is Austin Jackson and Phil Hughes. Why not throw in Sabathia and the New Yankee Stadium. You know, just to make it fair.
