Fred Wilpon’s NY Mets desperately need a new bat to improve their non-existent offense. Last night’s win over the Nationals was the exception to the rule for the team of late.
The NY Daily News has written about the latest in possible trade talks with the Oakland A’s for their utility player Ben Zobrist. While only hitting .259 with five home runs and 32 RBIs, he may still be better than most of the Mets’ lineup.
“While nothing is imminent, the Mets have gotten as far as discussing pieces with the A’s for a possible deal for Ben Zobrist, a source told The News Tuesday afternoon. The A’s have identified the prospects they would need to send the veteran utility man to New York.”
“Zobrist was identified early by the Mets as a possible piece that could help them, sources said, ” writes the post.
