FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: METS COMPLETE DEAL FOR CLOSER TYLER CLIPPARD



Updating an earlier item, the New York Mets acquired Oakland A's closer Tyler Clippard and cash considerations for minor league RHP Casey Meisner.  The Fantasy Sports Boss exclusively reportedly early this morning that the Mets and A's opened up trade talks last night for Clippard and firmly moved away from Ben Zobrist.  Clippard will set up closer Jeurys Familia unless the latter continues to struggle.

Analysis:  Great move by the Mets who shore up the bullpen and give themselves closer insurance if Familia's slump continues on.  For now though Clippard loses almost all of his fantasy baseball value without saves and as far as who now closes for Oakland, either veteran Edward Mujica or youngster Fernando Rodriguez could be promoted.
