So far this year the off-season has been subject to a whole plethora of activities. There have been some marquee trades like Shin-Soo Choo going to the Cincinnati Reds and Josh Hamilton signing with the new and improved Los Angeles Angels.
As the Mets continue through the rest of their offseason, they can rest easy knowing that they have addressed some urgent needs, particularly by signing David Wright, their MVP caliber third baseman and the cornerstone of their offense. A decision now looms concerning NL CY Young winner R. A. Dickey; his value is at an all-time high and teams are interested.
The Angels are the most logical trading partner for the Mets. They now have a surplus outfielders since they signed Josh Hamilton and are in need of pitching. When looking at Peter Bourjos career with the Angels, he has an OBP of .301 and only 208 strikeouts in 851 at-bats.
