With the Mets still on the hunt for an outfield, we received the following e-mail from Phil: I can’t believe the Mets haven’t traded for Josh Willingham yet. After some injury issues he averaged .253/.350/.501 with 64 HRs the last two years. At worst, he’s slightly better defensively than Duda.

According to Bill Ladson of MLB.com, the Mets are interested in Nationals outfielder, Josh Willingham. Add the Mets as one of the teams who have interest in Nationals left fielder Josh Willingham, according to a baseball source. The Giants, Mariners and Braves are the other teams who [...]
