Milledge is already as good as Ryan Church. That is the problem.

Wrong. Where are you getting this from?

edit: where i got the contract info is shady, so I'm not sure when Church is a FA. I'll check cot's. well they just have his year-to-year status. f it.

nowhere - unfortunately my BP subscription lapsed, so I can't go look up both's PECOTAs.

I guess given Lastings' 704 OPS against right handed pitching (small sample), he's got some work to do.

Church should outperform him, but not by much - what's the new Nats ballpark like anyway? I know the old one was the biggest pitchers park in the league so that deflates Church's numbers.

if we get a big pitcher (johan, haren, bedard) i can live with this trade. Church isnt awful. I just think milledge had more value than this ... apparantly not i guess.

im assuming they will nontender estrada now and save the cash unless he is packaged somewhere

My lame attempt:

1. This was a trade to appease Cameron. I can't grade this fairly.
2. B
3. A
4. B
5. A
6. A-
7. B
8. D-
9. D
10. F-
11. B+
12. B
13. C ~ I like Church alot but I just have a hard time believing Minaya couldn't do better than Church + Schneider for Milledge.

Disclaimer: I put next to zero thought into this.

Yep. Hopefully Minaya can get something serviceable for Estrada. Might be tough because everyone knows he'll probably be a FA in 2 weeks anyway.

I do. The problem is he hasn't done anything notable since then. He lost his mojo.

Church was worth more than 7 wins last year. He's rated highly defensive metrics so his Rate stats seem believable. An 800+ OPS in a severe pitcher's park is pretty good. And the Mets get his prime seasons without waiting on any development for Milledge. Milledge would've likely been a well below average regular this season.

Metsblog is saying he will be FA after the 2010 season.
