According to Ken Rosenthal at Fox Sports the Mets are close to acquiring Jeff Conine from the Reds for some minor leaguers.
Hmm. We got Luis Castillo for a few minor leaguers and now possibly Jeff Conine. Twins got hosed.
I guess Conine is a nice addition. He can fill in at first or in the outfield.
Does anybody else have an issue with Conine since he was a Marlin back in the day? I've never like him because I remember him getting some key hits for the Marlins against the Mets. I guess I'll get over it if he comes to the Mets.
At least they didn't resign Julio Franco. (again)
