07:32 AM ET 02.21 | In the likely event Stephen Drew lands elsewhere, where might the Mets look for another player to challenge for the role? [There] does appear to be a viable shortstop trade option for the club with the Seattle Mariners, according to industry insiders. The Mariners are likely to trade Nick Franklin or Brad Miller -- most likely Franklin -- before Opening Day. And that should be considered an upgrade over Ruben Tejada for the Mets. Franklin, who turns 23 on March 2, hit .225 with 12 homers, 45 RBIs and six steals in 369 at-bats as a rookie last season. ... He now has been dislodged from second base in Seattle with the signing of Robinson Cano. Miller's success last season as a rookie shortstop (.265, 8 HR, 36 RBIs in 306 at-bats) means one player is expendable.

There should be a couple of teams making calls to Seattle, with the Mets, Braves and Orioles among them. Franklin would be an upgrade in each city, and Seattle has a few holes to fill.

There does seem to be a disconnect between the two.

Yes, there will be quite a stench at second if your odor predictions are correct.

I'm sure if they wanted Jeter they could get him for a box of used baseballs and a golden thong...

After all of his high demands I hope nobody signs Drew and he has to watch the games on tv with us.

If a .225 BA and a .686 OPS is an upgrade for you, if I were in your shoes I would charter my team now and name it The Doormats.

How did you get ahold of my Little League stats?!?!?!

That would have been pretty awesome if Cash had piped up at the end of Jete's press conference and said, "Oh yeah, we just traded you to Houston."

The board is reset when they have to go #1...that's what causes our posts to hang and the spinny attacks (notice the resemblance to a flushing toilet).
