Tradewinds a'blowing

Rumor has it that the Mets are holding Jeff Keppinger out of the AAA lineup because the 26-year old utilityman is part of a trade with his former organization (Pittsburgh Pirates).

I don't really know much more than that, but the boys at MLB Trade Rumors inspired me. Read the full report here.

Nevertheless, if something goes down, Crosstown Rivals will be the third or fourth blog to bring it to you.

EDIT: Amazin' Avenue has the story about a possible Keppinger-for Ruben Gotay swap. Gotay's a fringe prospect who regressed last season after a strong showing in a cup of coffee in 2005. There's not a ton to talk about here.

A few other quick hits:

  • I always tell Dyslexia that Atlanta's Wilson Betemit is the best player in the big leagues and is bound to be a big star.

    Tonight: He went 4 for 6, hitting a homer (8) and a double (14), driving in five runs while scoring three. He's now hitting .298 on the season. Sure, it was against Jeff Weaver, but still. He's the best player.

  • Alex Rodriguez just cost me an entire week in fantasy. 3 errors in one damn game? Come on!

  • Doug Mientkiewicz is still a prick. I'm almost embarrassed to be able to spell his last name.

  • And all bickering aside, we're glad to see that Peter Gammons is out of the hospital. Unfortunately, most victims of ruptured aneurysms either die or fail to regain much of their previous mental function. We wish him best of luck with his rehab.
