Via AmazinAvenue comes talk of a trade that could go down as the most monumental deal in the history of sports. According to Ken Rosenthal, there are talks between the Mets and Royals. The names on the Mets side: Jeff Francouer, Luis Castillo, and Oliver Perez. On the Royals side: Jose Guillen, Gil Meche, and Kyle Farnsworth. Only if Brian Cashman gets on the phone with Theo Epstein to discuss swapping CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira and Mariano Rovera for Jon Lester, Kevin Youkilis and Jonathan Papelbon could a deal of equal magnitude possibly go down.
This deal has to get done if for no other reason than to finally decide the winner of The Contest.
