In a post I have going up over at StlucieToFlushing.com, I detail a possible trade that could be happening between the Mets and Giants for Jose Reyes.

In past days the Giants have made a few moves following the season-ending injury to star C Buster Posey. They have called up top prospects such as Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford.

Belt, who we saw briefly the beginning of the year, is the San Francisco Giants best prospect. He is mainly a 1B though many people believe he can handle corner OF spots as well. Possibly a Beltran replacement in RF? The Giants don’t even intend to start him either. He will come off bench in SF. Possible showcasing?

Crawford, arguably the Giants best SS prospect, was called up and made his debut last night. He would go on to hit a grand-slam in his first major league game. He was hitting. .322 3 HR and 15 RBI in Single-A. He was advanced past AA and AAA one would think because of 1. his age – 24 and 2. He may be getting a showcase for a future trade.

This could all lead up to a possible Reyes trade come June/July. The post will go up either today or tomorrow. I plan to update this post with the link when it comes out.
