David Wright To The New York Yankees? NY Post Lays Out Intriguing Scenario

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson admitted earlier this off-season that he would be willing to discuss trading star third baseman David Wright, now the most recognizable Met with Jose Reyes having fled to the Miami Marlins via free agency. The New York Post's Kevin Kernan, in fact, is suggesting that trading Wright would be the best choice for the Mets.

Part of Kernan's reasoning has to do with Reyes and the fact that the franchise just lost one of its two superstars without getting anything in return. Part of it also has to do with the New York Yankees -- a team Kernan sees as a great fit for the soon-to-be 29-year-old third baseman. 

Kernan points out that a trade would bring much-needed young prospects to the Mets, and that it would also benefit Wright. A deal would enable him to void the final year of his contract and become a free agent after the 2012 season, a scenario which puts the Yankees in play.

As Kernan points out, Alex Rodriguez will need to move to full-time designated hitter duties eventually and Wright would be a terrific option as a replacement.

What would you do with Wright this off-season if you were Alderson, Mets fans? As for Yankees fans, does the prospect of Wright inheriting third base from Rodriguez sound like a good idea to you?
