Trade Grades

The Mets were fairly quiet over the trade deadline, as they only made two trades overall. Im here to tell you if the Mets aced or Failed these trades.
Trade #1: #75 RP Francisco Rodriguez to Brewers for 2 players to be named later.
Grades: Mets: B-*
Brewers: B
The reason i gave the Mets a B- was because they in fact DID get rid of the attitude and contract of Frankie Rodriguez, considering if he finished 20 more games h would have gotten a 17.5 Million dollar bonus, but i gave them the minus because i thought they could have gotten more then probably 2 non-high-end prospects for Frankie. I give the Brewers and B because This helps them in the NL Central race and to sure up there wobbly 'pen.
Trade #2: #15 OF Carlos Beltran to Giants for SP Zack Wheeler
Grades: Mets A+
Giants: C
The reason i gave the Mets an A+ was because they really did ace this trade. They got Zack Wheeler, the #33 prospect in the nation and the #10 Starting Pitcher Prospect, Even though they did give up one of there best sluggers in Carlos Beltran, Carlos is 33 and exiting his prime. So the reason i give the Giants an C is because Carlos will reall only be a 1 or 2 year rental, but for the Mets they get an top-40 prospect who is 21 and will help the Mets in the long-term future.
Post your comments down below and i will leave a poll up and you take your pick: Which trade was the BEST the Mets Made?
*= depending how good the players they get back

Pray for Gary "The Kid" Carter #8.
