Yes, but bringing a guy in with any sort of medical history to the most dysfunctional medical staff in pro sports is awfully dicey. Yet another reason why including Kelenic for a closer (with bone spurs) is a terrible idea.At least this isn’t news.
He’s had it since he was drafted
It's got to be soooooooo frustrating because both of these "quotes" are spot on. I guess you can morph the tones of these two into one: "The Mets never spend any (smart) money".Mets fans last year: "THEY NEVER SPEND ANY MONEY!!!!!!"
Mets fans now: "THAT'S TOO MUCH MONEY"!!!!!!!
Agree. I don't know why paying Cano $20M/yr for his ages 36-41 seasons became a priority over paying those same or similar dollars to keep deGrom.Yes, that's the point. They rarely spend wisely. If this deal won't limit what they'll spend to fill the remaining holes and also re-sign deGrom next year, I don't care about the money.
This is the first I'm hearing of this, but I am okay with trading Thor for the right offer, and catcher has been a huge weakness of ours for a while. As hard as he throws, I can't see Thor avoiding the need for TJ surgery within the next few years. The best thing about deGrom is that he's already had it. With our luck we would pony up to re-sign Thor and then he would need the surgery, putting him out of commission for the better part of two seasons.Wake up this morning to hear buzz around a Thor to Yanks 3 way deal. Awesome. Why make the Cano/Diaz deal, then move a 26 yr old under contract that throws 101 all game?
Not sure what the Mets/BVW fascination is with JT Realmuto either.
Someone is going to run out of spots at the table. But having Ramos and Grandal out there didn’t help.Looks like the Marlins significantly overplayed their hand. I like this move for the Mets far more than any potential move to trade Rosario/Conforto/Thor to land Realmuto. That's an extremely club friendly deal; Ramos is really good.
Yeah I like this move a lot; I just hope he can avoid the injury bug.Looks like the Marlins significantly overplayed their hand. I like this move for the Mets far more than any potential move to trade Rosario/Conforto/Thor to land Realmuto. That's an extremely club friendly deal; Ramos is really good.
Agree. Grandal might find a sluggish market given just how many catchers are/were available out there. He comes with a loss of draft pick and $500K International money. Ramos was "free" and the Mets also got very good club friendly terms. If he stays healthy, it's a steal.Someone is going to run out of spots at the table. But having Ramos and Grandal out there didn’t help.
I still think the Sox should sign Grandal and trade some of the other catching for bullpen or 2b help (not counting on pedroia at all)
