According to Ken Rosenthall of FoxSports.com, the Mets acquired Kris Benson from the Pirates for Ty Wigginton and one of the Mets top pitching prospects, 22 year old Matt Peterson. Rosenthall also reports that the Mets received two unnamed minor leaguers in the deal. A Minnesota website jumped the gun in reporting on this trade last night so hopefully, or hopefully not (depending on your opinion of the deal), this report is correct. I'm going out to get a drink or ten.
