According to Adam Rubin of the Daily News, the Mets will probably look for a power bat in left field and look for a right handed bat at first base to platoon with Daniel Murphy. While the Mets know they need to get an upgrade in power in left field or first base, I get the sense it will be in the outfield. There’s little sense blocking prospect Ike Davis by signing a first baseman [...]
As most of you know, the Cardinals picked up utility infielder Mark DeRosa for reliever Chris Perez and a player to be named later. Of course some of us were shocked that the mets couldn’t up that offer, and there has been plenty of debate as to whether or not trading Bobby Parnell was worth it.

The Cleveland Indians have traded infielder Mark DeRosa to the St. Louis Cardinals for reliever Chris Perez and a player to be named later.

Nick Johnson, Nationals: Johnson is hitting .315 with a .417 on-base percentage, and although he is not a thumper like [...]
According to Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse, the Mets have already been in contact with the Cleveland Indians about infielder Mark DeRosa. He writes, Even before Jose Reyes became the latest Met to suffer an injury, leaving Wednesday night’s game, the Mets had been talking with the Indians about acquiring Mark DeRosa to play first base in Carlos Delgado’s absence, an official from one of the teams confirmed to FanHouse. DeRosa could also help out [...]
