In a stunning blow to the Mets' chances, WFAN, MetsBlog and other sources are reporting that Duaner Sanchez is out for the season after being injured in a taxi last night in Miami.
As a result of this development, it's being reported (although still unconfirmed) that Xavier Nady has been traded to the Pirates in return for Roberto Hernandez and the ultimate pitching project -- Oliver Perez. After a great 2004 season, Perez has turned into a walk machine, walking 121 batters in 179 IP over the last two years. I understand that Omar had to make a move, but I feel like Nady was too much to give up here in return for a older reliever and a head case. More later.
