On the same day the Dodgers get Betts. If only Selig chose to force the Wilpons out like he did with the McCourts

Gee, this wasn't predictable; I and everyone else has only been urging a trade for the past two-plus years because it was inevitable:

Yeah. I said over a year ago that signing deGrom was the priority and a big part of that is he's already gone through TJ surgery and rehab. Thor has good mechanics, strong frame (not like a Pedro Martinez) and age on his side. It just puts having him available off at least 18-24 months from being who we knew him to be.

We just signed him to a new one year contract in January so that's around $10M down the drain, but I suppose the bright side is that it's only a one-year contract and his value will be diminished now for any new contract going forward.

The season likely isn't even happening and if it is it'll be shortened a ton, so they won't have to pay the majority of the $10M anyway

I'm not even that bothered by Thor getting surgery TBH... More irritated that we gave up good prospects for Stroman for a VERY short rental.
