Brandon Hicks was designated for assignment by the A’s last week and today he was traded to the Mets for cash. Or, you know, sold.

Ronny Cedeno is a free agent, so the Mets could give Hicks a chance to win the utility infielder job. Oakland claimed the 27-year-old off waivers from Atlanta last spring.

He’s been awful in limited big-league action so far, hitting .133 with 42 strikeouts in 90 at-bats, and is a career .241 hitter in the minors, but Hicks has also shown good power with 43 homers in 271 games at Triple-A.

    I’m telling you, the Mets are quietly moving the pieces into place. NL East beware!

    Didn’t the A’s learn their lesson trying to sell players in the 70s?

    I think the bigger headline is the Mets have cash!

      My thoughts exactly! Something tells me Fred Wilpon is getting himself a case of Coors Lite and a lady of the night this evening. Go ahead Wilpon. You deserve a special night this Christmas season…
