Mets Morning News: November 5, 2012

Please do not trade. - Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

Mets morning news and links for November 5, 2012.

Things are still pretty quiet for the Mets, but that doesn't mean that speculation about the team's offseason activities hasn't continued. For starters, even though R.A. Dickey's trade value is high, that does not mean the Mets will trade him this winter, says Andy Martino.

Speaking of speculation, Mike Puma suggests outfielder Cody Ross could make some sense for the Mets in free agency this winter. While that might be true, Ross is basically Scott Hairston at the plate, crushing left-handed pitchers but not doing much of anything against right-handed pitchers.

The Mets' use of "Lazy Mary" during the seventh-inning stretch gets a brief mention in this Times article about music and baseball.

If you were hoping the Mets could pick up Peter Bourjos from the Angels in a trade this winter, you might be disappointed to hear that the Angels are planning on using an outfield of Mike Trout in left, Bourjos in center, and Mark Trumbo in right in 2013. That could change, of course, but it certainly reduces the odds that they trade the speedy center fielder.
