Jack Cust Drawing Trade Interest?


http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/mets/


According to this article, Cust is expected to be dealt prior to December 12th. This is news to me, and i'm guessing most of us on AN. It's been known that Cust is a potential non-tender candidate, but this is the first I have heard of him drawing any interest on the trade market. Obviously this time of the year its expected of most teams to kick the tires on multiple opitions so to hear that a trade has been considered isn't too earth shattering, but to hear that he is actually expected to be dealt within the next 3 weeks comes as a bit of a suprise. It's also said in the article that any deal won't net much for the A's, so whats everyones opinions on this? Isn't this selling a bit low on Cust?? Yes he's likely to get a nice arbitration raise, but he still won't cost more then $4-5 million in 2010 and is currently our only lock to hit 20+ homeruns. It opens up other options for the OF/DH, but I don't see the A's getting anybody that will produce that much more then Cust likely will. Thoughts??
