The 4-Way "Dumpbuster" Trade That Didn't Happen

I couldn't think of another name for this, but I think that's pretty good don't you?

 

Basically, as the article linked below indicates, the Angels would have traded GMJ and likely a good chunk of his contract to the Mets. The Rays would have gotten Milton Bradley. The Cubs would have gotten Castillo and Burrell and likely flipped Burrell for something else. No word on why this didn't go down.

The "Dumpbuster"

It's unfortunate for us that this didn't go down. No major players were named going to us in the trade but they were probably prospects at best. At the very least I would have been fine with simply having the Mets eat a good amount of GMJ's salary.

What do we do with GMJ? This at least gives me some hope that we can move him if Tony keeps being creative. Of all the players involved here, GMJ is probably a close 2nd as far as overall talent and desireability behind Bradley. Hell, his attitude is about 150% better than Bradley's which might make him more desirable to potential suitors. I have a feeling we need to get this done in order to get some needed financial flexibility.
