Kris Benson to Royals


Recommended Posts

Dec 6 - The Mets are about to trade right-handed starter Kris Benson to the Royals for left-hander Jeremy Affeldt and right-hander Mike MacDougal, reports ESPN's Peter Gammons, who says the deal could get done Tuesday night.

Earlier, the Newark Star-Ledger reported that Mets GM Omar Minaya had spoken with several teams about Benson -- including Baltimore, San Francisco and Kansas City.


The Mets like Benson but would move him in order to clear his salary ($15.5M over two years) so they could make a deal for a high-priced starter such as Arizona's Javier Vazquez or Oakland's Barry Zito.


New York almost dealt Benson to Baltimore last week for Jorge Julio. But the Mets went back to the Orioles demanding a high-level prospect in addition to Julio, and the O's balked.


Interesting trade, possible precursor for another move because the Mets definitely need an upgrade in the starting rotation.

ESPN Insider. Looks like Mets fixed up that pen...

Wonder what Ana thinks :mischief2

From Rotoworld:



Although the Royals are believed to be the leading contender for Kris Benson, GM Allard Baird said late Tuesday night that the teams weren?t close to a deal.

Baird added that he wasn't planning to give up Jeremy Affeldt and Mike MacDougal in the same trade. One of the two, along with a prospect, could be sufficient for the Mets. There's also been speculation that the Royals will trade one of the relievers and Angel Berroa to the Braves for either Kelly Johnson or Ryan Langerhans, along with a prospect. That makes more sense to us than a Benson deal. Dec. 7 - 4:33 am et
