Schneider, Church for Milledge!
A source just confirmed for me that Brian Schneider and Ryan Church have been sent to the New York Mets for outfielder Lastings Milledge.
I just spoke with Schneider, who said Mets GM Omar Minaya called him and told him the parameters of the deal, which was apparently first reported by New York radio station WFAN.
"It's done," Schneider said.
Mets and Nationals have both scheduled conference calls to announce the trade at 3 p.m.
This solves the Nationals' problem in center field AND potentially gives them a potent bat. Milledge's stock has fallen a bit since last offseason, but he is still regarded as a dynamic young talent.
I'll get you a more thorough analysis later. For now, here are the three players' statistics.
