Adam Lind has spent parts of four seasons in Vegas hitting 394/496/596, 299/353/471, 328/394/534 and 392/448/664. In his major league career he has a split of 265/316/414.
Travis Snider has also spent parts of four seasons in Vegas hitting 344/386/516, 337/431/663, 327/394/480 and 335/423/598. His career major league splits are 248/319/415.
Brett Lawrie hit 353/415/661 in Vegas. His career major league splits are 278/336/446.
JP Arencebia hit 301/359/628 in Vegas (his second time there - first time was not so good). His career major league splits are 222/275/435.
Travis D'Arnaud hit 333/380/595 in Vegas. Is this the gut we want to trade R.A. Dickey for? Again I will point out that in the history of major leaguer baseball only once has a recent Cy Young winner been traded where the team giving up the pitcher got the better of the deal. That was when the Expos traded Cliff Lee, Grady Sizemore and Brandon Phillips for Bartolo Colon to avoid being contracted. Last time I checked, the Mets were not in danger of being contracted and I'm pretty sure the Blue Jays' GM is not Omar.
I don't understand why the Mets can't keep Dickey and the rest of the major league staff in tact, go out and trade Duda, McHugh and Montero to the Twins for Josh Willingham, sign Cody Ross and bring back Hairston and platoon him with Baxter and you've got a major league outfield and a contending team for 2013.
