THE Poll: Should Mets Trade Jonathon Niese?
There has been a lot of talk about the Mets trading Jonathon Niese. On one hand, it makes sense — it continues the trend of teams trading young, established pitchers to fill several holes (the A’s with Gio Gonzalez and the Padres with Mat Latos). And the Mets certainly have several holes to fill in their lineup.
On the other hand, why in the world would you trade a young, established pitcher, especially one already signed to a team-friendly contract? We’ve seen that pitching wins championships. Why trade the most valuable commodity in the game?
So what do you think. Should the Mets trade Jonathon Niese?
