Mets select INF Andrew Ely in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft.

The defensive minded infielder hit .259/.356/.355 in AA last year for the Cubs.

Well that's stupid. Burch Smith actually sounds intriguing

No room in an 8 man bullpen that is supposed to be designed to “fix” the starting pitching problem- after all you’ve gotta fit Smoker, Sewald, Bradford, Robles, Rhame and Montero in there!

Embarrassment of riches.

It seems, the mets like the players they have, the Smokers and Monteros and Bradfords and Matt Reynoldses more than this guy. I'm a little fuzzy on agreeing with them. Smith might have been worth keeping, but time will tell.

Yankees lost 4 again, but odds are they get 2 or 3 of them back. It must be tough to have such a deep farm system (sarcasm).

Good news - we didn't lose anybody.

Look at is this way. This organization is sooooo cheap that they left Uceta unprotected in the Rule 5 draft in order to make $50,000. We got lucky that no one poached him, but the media really needs to start looking at how the Wilpons run this organization. You don't risk a good prospect like Uceta for Fifty Grand.

Rule 5 is 100K now. But I think the Wilpons and Sandy are happy Uceta wasn't taken. There was a lot of RHP talent available this rule 5, so, leaving Uceta exposed wasn't a huge risk.

Sadly it makes me feel a little better that they traded this guy for international budget money, and not 'merely' cash. But I do think they could have used him.


Uh, they didn’t?

@Mets We've selected RHP Burch Smith from Tampa Bay in the major league phase of the Rule 5 draft and traded him to Kansas City for cash. #Mets

I could have sworn I saw somewhere else it was for more international money, but can’t find it so fine resume the tar and feathering.

I didn't think they would nab a RPer given the restrictions, in a year where they probably intend to break in several young arms thru the shuttle - Drew Smith, Bashlor, Callahan, Rhame, and maybe Molina, etc. To me, it seems harder to keep a RPer on the roster a whole year given all the ups and downs of a normal season.

But I did think they could add a position player - an OFer or Mike Ford. Especially given that they're not completely sold on Dom at 1B. What would be the downside to bring Ford down to ST and see what he can do? Worst case, you offer him back to the Yankees.

The guy the Phillies sold to the Pirates was or international money (500 K I think). It's always possible the Mets got some international money too and it wasn't reported, but KC only has 300K left.
