Mets willing to trade Jon Niese


He's a big lefty (6 foot 4) and he's only 26. What's not to like. He has battled injuries (muscle in his side last year) but last year came up with a 2 seamer to use instead of his cutter, which had become a predictable pitch. His SIERA, an ERA estimator , was 3.42. He's not an elite pitcher but are any of the Bucco pitchers right now. If I were the FO, I would be jumping on this one. You can never have enough pitching, especially big left-handed ones that keep the hitters away from the short porch in RF. If the price is right, bring him to Pittsburgh.

Ryan Theriot was also cut by the Cards. He became their backup SS when Furcal took over. Astros, Reds, and KC kicking the tires on Theriot, so far.
