Cross Washburn Off Your List
Was Jarrod Washburn on your wish list of cheap players the Mets could or should have gotten today? If so, cross him off.
According to ESPN.com, he has been traded to the Detroit Tigers for 23 year old left handed starter Luke French, and pitching prospect Mauricio Robles.
At 34 years old, Washburn is having a career year for the Mariners posting an 8-6 record with a 2.64 ERA paired nicely with a 1.07 WHIP.
About the Author: Michael J. Branda
My time with MMO began in July of 2009 when I wrote a Fan Post defending Omar Minaya (before it was cool to do that.) I grew up a Mets fan with the mid 1980's teams. My favorite Met of all-time is (and was) Wally Backman. When it comes to sabermetrics versus old school thinking, I like to think I meet in the middle. I believe thinking of new ways to get answers is helpful, especially when the same way has not produced results. However, I think over-thinking certain situations can get you into trouble. I'm excited for the new regime, because I believe they have pieces in place to focus on several aspects of the Mets organization. I've waited this long for a World Series, waiting a few more years for another chance isn't going to kill me.
