Angels Need 1B – Can Mets Be Players?
Earlier today, after starting Angels 1B Kendry Morales went down with an injury, it was mentioned that the Angels have no solid backup plan at 1B. Can the Mets be players?
The Mets currently have Daniel Murphy rehabbing at AAA, and with Brandon Wood struggling as well at 3B for the Angels, could he be a fit?
Murphy could platoon between 1B and 3B and possibly be a good trading chip with a team the Mets have already dealt with earlier in the season (Thanks GMJ).
If not Murphy, then Mike Hessman, who is leading AAA in home runs could possibly be another name that could fetch a piece or two. Of course, this is just speculation on my behalf, but considering the other trading options (Ty Wigginton, Lance Berkman, Paul Konerko) the Mets would seem to be the least demanding in terms of getting a great return back.
If it could happen, the Angels have a few hard-throwing bullpen pieces to replenish a fatigued bullpen, and possibly a few starters who could possibly help with another prospect being bundled in the deal (Nick Evans, anyone?)
