Should the New York Mets Trade for Robinson Cano?

There fans may hate each other, but the teams may be able to help each other.

I guess the first question should be, do the Mets want Robinson Cano?

Well I say yes!

And more than that, I think he may be the answer!

Yes, I know that most of you baseball fans are thinking I am crazy.

The man would be the No. 4 hitter on our team with Carlos Beltran gone, and with Carlos Beltran in, he can be the No. 5 hitter.

He is also hitting very well, averaging .305 with 13 home runs and 45 RBI. I think the Mets would really do great with this man. He is a very good, young player.

So why are the Yankees looking to trade him? I don’t really know.

I tried to look it up. I went to MLB.com’s On the Block and Cano was the No. 1 second baseman on the block.

It seems the Yankees think he is worth more to other teams than to them. And that may be why he is on the block.

It seams like the Yankees may need pitching help, and the Mets need offense, so it seems like the New Yorkers can make each other happy.

I think that if the Mets can send Jon Niese and ether Sean Green or Brian Stokes, they may be able to get Robinson Cano.

I know Jon Niese is a big price to pay, but I think Cano is worth it. And Cano is young—he is only 27 years old.

And if the Yankees want, we can send Argenis Reyes to them and they can throw in a class-AA rookie.

And what would the Mets do with Luis Castillo? He is a great player to have on the bench.

He could pinch hit and pinch run, and I do not see the Mets finding a way to trade him.

One reason the Yankees may not want this trade is to send Robinson Cano and Phil Hughes to the Blue Jays for Roy Halladay.

But I do not think the Blue Jays would take that since they would not want to send an ace to a division rival.

On MLB.com, it says that the Dodgers may want Robinson Cano, but I don’t see why? Their second baseman, Orlando Hudson, is having an All-Star season.

I am hoping the Mets and Yankees read this article and start thinking of the possibility to make this trade work.

Please let me know what you think, as a Yankee, Met, or baseball fan.
