Mets Willing To Listen On Both Hairston And Byrdak
Joel Sherman of the NY Post, is reporting that the Mets are willing to listen to trade offers on both Scott Hairston and Tim Byrdak.
Hairston and Byrdak are both free agents at the end of the season and could be very helpful pieces to teams in contention.
Hairston is basically a left handed hitting specialist and has 12 homers and 37 RBI. He can provide a lot of power off the bench and also provide outfield depth for potential playoff teams.
As for Byrdak, teams are always looking for left handed relief help, especially during a stretch run. Byrdak is an extremely valuable piece and should be able to bring back at least 2 quality minor leaguers in a trade. He has a 4.28 ERA on the season with 15 holds.
Keep it locked in to MMO for more Mets news and trade rumors leading up the July 31st trade deadline.
