Reyes would fit the Giants, except ...

The question I posed Tuesday morning was simple: Can Brandon Belt be this year's Buster Posey for the Giants?

The question sure to be asked during the Giants' series this week in New York is more complicated: Could the Giants trade for Jose Reyes?

On the surface, it makes perfect sense. Shortstop has been a problem spot for the Giants. Miguel Tejada is too old and too slow to play there anymore, and when third baseman Pablo Sandoval went on the disabled list, manager Bruce Bochy smartly moved Tejada to third and put Mike Fontenot at short.

But Fontenot is a utility guy, just a stop-gap.

Jose Reyes would be perfect, except . . .

"Brian never trades for loaners," said one baseball man who knows Giants general manager Brian Sabean well.

What he meant is that Sabean doesn't believe in trading prospects in exchange for a half-season of a guy in the final year of his contract. Reyes, of course, is in the final year of his contract with the Mets.

So for Reyes to become a Giant, here's what would need to happen: First, the Mets (now 12-16 and 6 1/2 games out of first place) would need to continue falling to the point they could justify giving up on the season. Second, the Giants would need to come up with the best package of prospects. And third, either Sabean would need to change his longstanding policy, or the Giants would need to negotiate a big-money extension with Reyes.

Could all that happen?

Sure it could, and there's no doubt that Reyes would be a great fit for the Giants. But making it happen won't be easy.

Why do you continue to comment on the Mets Knobler? You make obviously dislike them and any trade configuration makes sense for ANY team. Anything can happen.

Not sure what it would take but the Mets won't just give him away.  A deal headlined by Zach Wheeler would probably be sufficient but I doubt Brian Sabean would be too receptive to that idea.
