FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: METS CONTINUE TO HAGGLE OVER MONEY IN JAY BRUCE DEAL

The New York Mets and Cincinnati Reds have a tentative deal worked out for outfielder Jay Bruce but the sticking point in talks has been about how the money involved.  The Mets want the Reds to pick up a portion of the $12 million Bruce is owned next season but the Reds to this point are not interested in doing that.  The return package for Bruce is highlighted by Zack Wheeler but another prospect reportedly is involved as well from the Mets. 

Analysis:  The Mets look very bad after Carlos Gomez went to the Houston Astros Thursday and they really need to save face after that fiasco.  Bruce is a streaky power hitter who hurts in the average department but he will be a help to whatever teams he winds up on.
