Mets Morning News: K-Rod Traded, All-Star Game, Einhorn

Late last night it was announced that the Mets had traded closer Francisco Rodriguez and cash to the Milwaukee Brewers for two players to be named later.

The National League defeated the American League 5-1 in last night's All-Star Game. The NL will once again have home field advantage in this year's World Series. Carlos Beltran went 1-2 with a run scored and one strike out while batting as the DH.

Speaking of Beltran, Giants closer Brian Wilson made it clear he would like the All-Star outfielder playing in San Francisco.
"He's a pretty awesome hitter," Wilson said after notching the save as the National League beat the American League, 5-1, on Tuesday night at Chase Field. "I have no qualms about it. Come on over. I don't want to be the guy that's traded, though. OK? Let's make sure that doesn't happen."
Things are looking good as far as David Einhorn's stake in the Mets. He also has the approval of commissioner Bud Selig.
"What the hell, he played baseball in my backyard. How can I turn him down?" Selig quipped, referring to Einhorn growing up in Milwaukee and playing baseball in a yard neighboring Selig's house. "... Yes, he's cleared. They have to finish the deal. And, by the way, I think they're making very good progress toward that end."

  1. At least the Mets are admitting they are sellers and not buyers (unlike the Cubs)
