An exercise in ridiculous...ness, by Jon Paul Morosi

Jon Paul Morosi decides the best use of his time yesterday was to write a timeline of how the Mets will win the World Series.

Why is this important to you and I? Because on July 31, 2010, the Mets will trade stud 1B Ike Davis and SS Reese Havens for Roy Oswalt, giving the Mets "one of the best 1-2 combos in baseball."

Will this happen? Who freaking knows? But I'll tell you this much: the Astros aren't likely to be trading for a shortstop, not with universally-beloved SS Jiovanni Mier making his way through the system. Ike Davis would be nice, though...

To your point about Havens and Mier, there's been a lot of talk about Havens having to move off SS anyway (not that that makes him any more appealing, of course). And as for the scenario as a whole, it's flawed: if Oswalt is pitching like an ace at the deadline, he'll command more than Davis and Havens. If he's not, he likely wouldn't be the Mets' target.
