Has Pat Burrell been traded to the Mets? UPDATE: Nope

Dec 7, 2009, 11:33 AM EDT

I put that in the form of a question because while one paper is reporting that it has happened — a three way swap that had him first going to the Cubs and then to the Mets — no one else is reporting it yet.  And no one here at the Meetings is talking about it.

If it’s true, WTF are the Mets thinking?

UPDATE: A few people are now saying this is bogus, but PhillyBurbs.com still has it up.  Gotta love the looney season.

UPDATE II:  Now the Mets are saying it’s totally bogus.

    Burrell with a glove in CitiCanyon would be hilariously bad.

    The fact that we can’t immediately dismiss this story does say something about Omar Minaya though…

    Yeah, sad but true. This is what we have to look forward to this off season

    Based on what recent evidence do you assume that the Mutts front office is capable of thinking, Craig?
