Quote: Ted Berg on Trading Jenrry Mejia for Cliff Lee

“Trade Jenrry Mejia to rent Cliff Lee, sure, because world championships are invaluable and Lee significantly increases the chances of winning one.  But don’t strive for the negotiating window.  Let him walk and use the draft picks aggressively to try to find a guy who will develop into an ace in the future.”

~ Ted Berg, TedQuarters

i agree with ted… in some ways, my big fear is the Mets acquire lee, give up mejia, they all do well, and then the Mets feel compelled to have to re-sign lee, because they gave up so much in mejia, and then lee has the Mets right where he wants them, just like Kris Benson, just like Mike Hampton…
