Transplanted Ex-Mets Update: Julio and Benitez On The Block

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Cardinals, Marlins, Pirates and Devil Rays are all involved in talks with the Diamondbacks to try and acquire transplanted ex-Met Jorge Julio. The Marlins are also considering a trade for Armando Benitez.

I don't know about you, but I'd prefer to keep those guys out of the NL East. I know Benitez only converted one of the two save opportunities he had against the Mets last season, but he was 13 for 13 in '04 - '05 with an ERA under one vs. the orange and blue.

UPDATED: Jorge Julio has been traded to the Marlins for former Mets prospect Yusmeiro Petit.
