Boston talk-radio host Danny Picard suggests, on his blog I’m Jusy Sayin, that, in the off season, the Red Sox should offer RHP Clay Buchholz, top prospect RHP Michael Bowden, OF Jacoby Ellsbury and SS Jed Lowrie to the Mets for SS Jose Reyes.
…it’s too early for this type of talk, and, despite him being on the disabled list, there is zero chance reyes is traded this season… but, i will say this, if the Mets do not make the post season, and if the year ends with a whimper, talk of breaking up the core will once again resurface… and, a deal like this would be interesting to talk about…
Buchholz is 4–0 with a 1.75 ERA in 11 starts in Triple-A.
Meanwhile, Bowden, 22, is 3–3 with a 2.48 ERA in Triple-A, and was ranked at roughly the same level as Jon Niese in Baseball America’s Top 100 list.
The 25–year-old Ellsbury, who starts in center and bats leadoff, is hitting .296 with a .351 OBP and 84 stolen bases in 236 games during his three-year career.
