We'll have trade analysis from Dallas posted soon.
UPDATE 8:43 p.m.
Scout.com National Baseball Expert Frankie Piliere says the deal is a win-win for both clubs. Piliere reports the Mets were very active on Tuesday, adding three relievers by day's end.
Piliere says the trade is also a solid upgrade for San Francisco:
As for the Giants' end of the trade, they are able to essentially replace Andres Torres and fill his role with a far more productive player in Angel Pagan. Ramon Ramirez is a quality arm and is tough to lose but Pagan should provide some good value for them.
The 30-year-old Pagan posted a disappointing 2011 after a breakout 2010. Still, the leadoff hitter has swiped 30+ bags in each of the last two seasons.
The obvious question is: Can Pagan stay healthy and return to his 2010 form?
For the going price, it seems like a worthwhile bet.
