The Indians would indeed be open to trading Mark DeRosa, as reported earlier by Jon Heyman of SI.com . But sources said the Tribe would only deal DeRosa now if he would bring immediate bullpen help in return.

The Mets are in desperate need of infield help, with Carlos Delgado on the disabled list and Jose Reyes sidelined with a calf injury. Ed Price of Fanhouse reported that the Mets have explored a deal for DeRosa, but an official familiar with the Indians strongly doubted that the Mets would have enough pitching to tempt the Indians.

Cleveland's bullpen has a 5.84 ERA, and the Indians lead the American League with nine blown saves (in 17 chances). In the past week alone, the Tribe lost one game after leading 7-0 and another after leading 5-1. As one Indians official said, with even an average bullpen Cleveland would still be in the race in the AL Central.

As it is, the Indians are 8 1/2 games behind the first-place Tigers. But the Indians aren't ready to give up just yet.

"For us to trade [DeRosa], we've got to get something that can help us now," one Indians person said. "And I don't think anybody is looking to give up pitching."

As a tribe fan I really like what I have seen from DeRosa. He could really help the Mets out this year. I would agree that they should only unload him if they get a really good deal, including help for this year. The problem is that alot of teams have a bad bullpen and the teams with a good pen want it to stay that way.
