Sandy Aldersons' Mets first official trade - Who?
No not who - Hu
Mets Acquire 27 year old Chin-lung Hu, MLB's first Taiwanese infielder From Dodgers For Michael Antonini.
303/.333/.421 in 1,135 Triple-A at-bats in the Dodgers system, but he did so in two very good hitters parks in Las Vegas and Albuquerque. Hu was Baseball America's #55 prospect prior to the 2008 season and has done little of consequence in 191 big league plate appearances
Antonini was an 18th-round pick by the Mets in the 2007 amateur draft. The left-hander is a fly ball pitcher with good control and underwhelming strikeout rates throughout his minor league career. He turned 24 in August. John Sickels ranked him the 18th best prospect in the Mets system before the 2009 season.
Looks like added depth at infield and a contact hitter at least.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
