File The Pat Burrell To Mets Report Under Bogus
Update 11:45 AM
I just confirmed that the Mets did not make any deal involving Pat Burrell, but they do have a passing interest. You can all exhale now.
Original Post 11:15 AM
According to a post on Philly Burbs, the Mets may have acquired Pat Burrell from the Cubs after they acquired him from the Rays.
Former Phillies outfielder Pat Burrell has reportedly been swapped twice this morning, eventually landing with Phils division rival the New York Mets.
The Tampa Bay Rays traded the slugging left fielder to the Chicago Cubs then the Cubs dealt Burrell to the Mets. Names of other players involved in the deals were not immediately available.
Don’t know if this is entirely accurate, but I’m currently trying to confirm this with someone on the Mets or at the Post. As soon as I get a second confirmation, I will update this post.
So far I spoke to one contact who told me that he doubted the accuracy, and didn’t believe Burrell could be flipped in a second trade without the first trade being made public first or at least leaked by what he called “some overly ambitious” Rays beat writers.
Don’t hang your hat on this one just yet as it wreaks of some Philly shenanigans to me. It may eventually happen, but for now this report is entirely premature.
