Jeff Conine continues his quest for a third World Series ring. The Mets acquired the outfielder/first basemen from the Cincinnati Reds for two minor league players; shortstop Jose Castro and outfielder Sean Henry. Conine is no stranger to the NL East, already spending time with the Florida Marlins (where he collected two World Series rings), and the Philadelphia Phillies.

This is a good move for the Mets. Conine, a career .285 hitter, will give the Mets a playoff seasoned bat off the bench. Something the bench could sorely use, since it’s been depleted with Ramon Castro and most recently, Damon Easley on the disabled list.
