[h1]Mets Interested In Mark DeRosa[/h1]
By Tim Dierkes [May 21, 2009 at 10:51am CST]

According to Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse, the Mets have been talking to the Indians about acquiring Mark DeRosa. With Jose Reyes' injury last night, Price says "now that move makes even more sense."

What would it take to get DeRosa, who is hitting .255/.322/.427 in 174 plate appearances this year? First off I'd guess full relief of the $4.1MM still owed to him. Beyond that the rumor yesterday was pitching that could help the Indians this year.

[h1]Yankees Considering Mark DeRosa?[/h1]
By Tim Dierkes [May 28, 2009 at 9:30am CST]

ESPN's Buster Olney suggests that the Yankees are at least considering Mark DeRosa internally:

Imagine DeRosa as a big hunk of tuna, bait on a hook. One of the looming shadows circling below is that of the New York Yankees, who are weighing options and haven't decided whether to take a shot at the versatile veteran.

For his part, DeRosa is trying to put the trade chatter out of his head. The Indians seek Major League-ready pitching for DeRosa. The Mets and Cardinals may be suitors (but not the Brewers). The 34 year-old impending free agent is hitting .266/.333/.446 in 205 plate appearances this year.

[h1]Could Cardinals Be Interested In DeRosa?[/h1]
By Brian Shephard [June 1, 2009 at 10:11pm CST]

Anthony Castrovince of says that Cardinals GM John Mozeliak is seeking help at third base with Troy Glaus out with ligament damage. "And in describing what he's looking for to reporters earlier today, he might as well have just said, 'Mark DeRosa.'"

Castrovince continues:

"The Indians, as you know, have had DeRosa basically on the block for a couple weeks now, because his value to them isn't anywhere near what it was before Jhonny Peralta moved to third base. So this could be an interesting situation to watch in the next couple days."

The Indians want Major League-ready pitching in return for DeRosa, says Castrovince, and he lists Mitchell Boggs, P.J. Walters, and Chris Perez as potential bargaining chips for the Cards.

Mariners are definitely sellers...Have already heard Bedard and Washburn's names out there

An acquisition of Peavy would be out of the question for Dodgers, being that the major hurdle is playing in the same Division.

A fifth starter would be a well needed addition. Juan Pierre will possibly get strong interest from other teams.

Also heard the possibility that the Astros are looking to trade Roy Oswalt ??

Otherwise, this team is pretty well in tact, awaiting the return of Manny Ramirez.

A frontline starting pitcher and some bullpen help.

The bullpen is being used extensively (2nd in the NL behind the Marlins), on top of that three guys are being used extensively (Troncoso, Belisario andBroxton).

We have some enticing pieces to deal in Juan Pierre, AJ Ellis, Chin Lung Hu, Tony Abreu, Jason Repko, Jamie Hoffman and some arms (McDonald, Leach, Stults,etc.).

Peavy is a stretch, the Padres will ask for way too much.

Bedard and Valverde should be prime targets.

Does DeRosa have cooties or something? Why the hell would anyone want to get rid of him? We were stupid for doing so.

We need to be buyers, we need to quit screwin around and go get Peavy already. I'd love Oswalt, but Houston ain't helpin us out. We need a lot.

Astros imo have no clue whether they want to be buyers or sellers.

So if they don't have a clue then I for certain don't have one

A power bat in the outfield.

Schafer just got sent down to the minors and Frenchy is still struggling to find his hitting stride.

Also I wouldn't mind getting DeRosa....Omar Infante was plugging in well for Kelly Johnson at 2B until he got hurt.

Well this is interesting for the White Sox because we could be both buyers and sellers

Sox have been already made the move for Peavy and there are rumors they are looking for another starter like Roy Oswalt or Erik Bedard

If the Sox were really out of it....I could have seen them trying to move Jim Thome or Jermaine Dye....but the Good Guys have won their last 4 series and areback to .500 despite a HORRIBLE start to May

I don't know how much I want Derosa, never thought he was that good.

Maybe see if we can deal Melky and Kennedy though.

I was such a supporter of that move. He definitely had me fooled.

He can play how many ever positions, but i's not like he's great at any of them. There are other guys out there that could do what he does defensivelyif given the chance.

He has the quietest 34 RBI in 50 games that I've ever seen. Not that that is that great, but it seems like he should have about 20, tops.

He rarely comes up with a big hit: .222 with RISP and two outs.

He strikes out a ton (45), and doesn't walk much (19).

Somebody will be willing to part with some kind of quality pitching, and that is more vital to this team than Mark DeRosa. Plus, he cuts into Ryan Garko'sat-bats, and Garko is the better hitter.

The "versatility" is a cute gimmick, but everything about him just screams, "average."

The Dodgers need: Starting Pitcher and Bullpen arms

as stated by ironman, torre is known for favoring arms in the bullpen and he's been overusing troncosco and belli to the fullest, add a little more balanceback there and we should be set.

This rumor has been floating around for a bit (Aubrey Huff to the Mets)

For the moment, then, the Mets are not desperately searching for a replacement. But with Delgado expected to be out through the July 31 trade deadline, General Manager Omar Minaya will certainly explore external options to bolster their defense and add some left-handed pop. Two possibilities are Baltimore's Aubrey Huff and Washington's Nick Johnson, two left-handed hitters playing for weak teams who, just as important, are in the final years of their contracts.

O's are gonna dump all of these older players and STOCK the team with young talent...things are looking up in Birdland...
