Diary: Trade Shawn Green

(moved from diaries. --eric)

After a fantastic April, it's time to start the discussion about how long Shawn Green should remain a Met.  

His hitting stats for the first full month of play are amazing and evidence for an unexpected rejuvenation: his OPS of .928 as of today is good for 17th best in the National League.  But the guy is bound to start regressing at least a little bit, and despite injuries to Alou and Milledge the Mets have a little depth in corner outfielders who can be expected to replace (more or less) what Green can be expected to provide for the remainder of the season.  And let's not forget that he is due a large chunk of money this year -- something like $10-11M, of which the Mets are paying something like $6-7M (I think; memory is rusty).  Since he now appears to be worth this money, he should be more tradable and bring more value in return than ever before.  If the Mets are willing to send some money along with him, he should definitely bring prospects or useful pitching in return.

Trade ideas?  Or should we keep him?  Discuss.
