Mets Deny Grudzielanek Trade

John Delcos at Lo Hud writes about the speculated trade last night between the Mets and Royals for second baseman Mark Grudzielanek (check out the post here):

The Mets deny they have traded tonight for Kansas City second baseman Mark Grudzielanek.Grudzielanek was pulled form the line-up prior to tonight’s Royals’ game with the Yankees, which is usually a sign of an imminent trade. The first dot, so to speak.

“There are no dots to connect,’’ said the Mets’ official. Not yet, anyway.

This bears watching, because teams have been known to issue denials as a smokescreen. It also bears watching because GM Omar Minaya said he’s been getting calls from teams asking if the Mets need a second baseman.
