For the second day in a row, the Mets greatly improved their bullpen and thus their team, adding a premium arm for a very reasonable price. Omar Minaya told reporters that heading into the offseason, the Mets gathered their professional scouts to evaluate the "Closer" market.? The team determined that Putz and Rodriguez were the two best.? Now they are both Mets.? Well played gentlemen.

The Mets acquired RHP JJ Putz, OF Jeremy Reed and RHP Sean Green from the Mariners for RHP Aaron Heilman, OF Endy Chavez, LHP Jason Vargas, 1B Mike Carp, OF Ezequiel Carrera and RHP Maikel Cleto while sending Joe Smith to Cleveland.? The Indians sent OF Franklin Gutierrez to Seattle for INF Luis Valbuena.

I'd like to propose thinking about the trade this way: the Mets picked up a stud for the backend of the bullpen for Aaron Heilman and a bunch of iffy minor leaguers while swapping a 4th OF and righthanded set up man with Seattle.
