The Mets continued their demolition of the 2008 bullpen by trading Scott Schoenweiss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Mets threw in $1.6 million of the $3.6 million that Schoenweiss is owed for 2009 in exchange for righty Connor Robertson.
Robertson is 27 years old and spent most of 2008 in Triple-A. Even if he never makes one appearance in the majors this will end up as a plus trade for the Mets unloading Schoenweiss. He’s been extremely unpopular at Shea, with good reason, and never justified the 3-year/$9 million deal that he signed after the 2006 season.
