Tigers Trying to Deal Willis to Mets?


Recommended Posts

Pulled this from MetsBlog who got word of this over WFAN.




Speaking with WFAN, beat reporter Sweeny Murti said?


?Omar Minaya said he inquired about Dontrelle Willis, but the Marlins were not going to deal him within the division.


?However, the Tigers have explored the idea of spinning him off, and they have contacted the Mets. There wasn?t an official offer presented to Omar, but what was talked about, from what I was told, they talked about spinning off Willis. In addition, though, the Mets would have to take on some salary. The Tigers are interested, perhaps, in moving Willis and Ivan Rodriguez and dumping his salary, which is $13 million next season. So, if the Mets wanted Willis from Detroit, that have to take on that salary. The thing is, he has a no trade clause, so to get him to waive it you?d probably have to give him another year.?
