We can only dream of a Cespedes-Ozuna/Yelich-Conforto outfield right?

 

Ken Rosenthal@Ken_Rosenthal
#Marlins pushing Ozuna, telling teams he will be easier to acquire (lower acquisition cost) than Yelich. Two years of control for Ozuna, five for Yelich.

Was told the Mets would probably need to get more than Jurickson Profar from the Rangers to deal them Matt Harvey.

@  Drucifer : (11 Dec 2017 - 17:13)

Mike Puma‏ @NYPost_Mets
Mets have had several inquiries about Matt Harvey, but expect to keep him - his trade value is low.

 

He's going before the mid-season trade deadline no matter how he pitches.

@  Drucifer : (11 Dec 2017 - 17:08)

Matt Ehalt‏ @MattEhalt
As Matt Harvey rumors circulate: Have heard there is nothing brewing in terms of potential deal. Harvey is an interesting trade candidate. He's struggled last two years, has undergone major surgeries, but is FA to be and expected to be highly motivated.

@  West Coast M... : (11 Dec 2017 - 16:39)

Harvey for Profar. Not a deal I would make. Hopefully Harvey has a comeback year in his contract push.

Stanton was asked why NYC was appealing to him. β€œThe team,” he said. β€œThe dynamic - they strike from everywhere. They’re well-balanced and they’re hungry.” #Yankees

O's have O'Day, Brach, Britton, really need rotation help. Mets aren't too eager to move Harvey but would see listen on him as Kristie said

@  Drucifer : (11 Dec 2017 - 10:44)

David Lennon‏ @DPLennon
Have to think one of #Mets scenarios to be competitive this season involves a bounceback from Harvey, no?
Dumping him for a reliever doesn’t seem like progress, unless #Mets already convinced he’s shot.

@  yogib8 : (11 Dec 2017 - 10:21)

β€œOn the other hand, making a trade, giving up a minimal number of talented players for maybe someone who can help us on a shorter deal or what have you"

Rinse and repeat. If not low end trades, late in the off season scroll the unwanted and look for a Loney type...Moreland/Lind? 2B, maybe B Phillips or Utley. Really hope I'm wrong...but afraid I might not be.

@  Saxon : (11 Dec 2017 - 08:32)

I guess we know what it was like to be a Boston Braves fan living in the Red Sox shadow...The Steinbrenners and the Wilpons love to show us that we are a semi-pro team living in their glorious shadows...

Scary that each year we hear the same garbage about waiting for the market to come to them.

@  West Coast M... : (10 Dec 2017 - 23:25)

So the Mets will not overpay or over commit on bullpen help, will not find a 1B that will block Smith. What the heck will they do?

Jon Morosi‏ @jonmorosi
Evan Longoria is certain to be mentioned as a trade candidate in the coming week. When that happens, remember this: He leads @MLB with 798 games played over the last 5 seasons. He hasn’t spent a day on the DL during that span.

 

Michael Baron‏ @michaelgbaron
The #Mets could find a way to end this streak.

Joel Sherman‏ @Joelsherman1
The minor leaguers #Marlins are getting are Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers, who is Rafael Devers' cousin.

 

Anyone familiar with these Yankee prospects?

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 15:22)

Ken Rosenthal‏ @Ken_Rosenthal
Source: Stanton’s annual luxury-tax number with #Yankees will be approximately $22 million. #Marlins’ $30 million contribution if he does not opt out after 2020 reduces luxury-tax burden of 13-year, $325M deal. Luxury-tax number based on average annual value.

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 15:21)

Marc Carig‏ @MarcCarig
While Bryan Shaw has history with Mickey Callaway, there’s been no indication that he’s signing with the Mets. May be waiting for better to come along. Exec from another team believes he has multiple 3-year offers.

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 15:18)

Marc Carig‏ @MarcCarig
Mets seem focused on trades re: second baseman. But an option in their back pocket if they can’t find a deal: Jose Reyes.

 

Have my fingers cross for the above outcome. As I see Cabrera @3B being the infield weak spot in both offense & defense.

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 15:12)

Marc Carig‏ @MarcCarig
Mets getting close to making hire on performance coach who will oversee training staff. Could have announcement at winter meetings.

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 15:08)

Michael Baron‏ @michaelgbaron
You figure - based on the pattern of course - the #Marlins might not be as interested in a talent return as they would be in both short and long-term payroll relief. That could mean the cost for a Castro, Yelich and/or Realmuto could be fractional to their on-field value.

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 15:04)

The same shit will happen with a Harper trade.

Mets expected to meet with Jay Bruce's agent at Winter Meetings

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 14:59)

It's the Marlins. They're in the Mets division. Inter-division trades would have to be really lopsided to have your trade away star for you to have him show up at your ballpark 9 nines a year instead of 2 times every three years.

@  West Coast M... : (09 Dec 2017 - 12:42)

Yankees get the cream of the crop and Mets fans are left with the prospect of the bottom of the barrel.

it will be like in the 70's when the Harlem Globetrotters would beat up on low level college football teams (the Mega Yanks vs the rest of baseball)

@  brian stark : (09 Dec 2017 - 11:09)

Judge LF Harper CF, Stanton RF, Machado 3B, Sanchez C, Gregorius 2B, Byrd 1B, Torres SS. Don't know who the DH will be, but does it really matter?

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 11:08)

I expect the Maris/Mantle combo record of 61/56 to get shatter next year.

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 11:05)

Jon Morosi‏ @jonmorosi
With Stanton, #Yankees have progressed roughly as far as #STLCards and #SFGiants did.
The question now is whether Stanton is prepared to accept deal and close door on #Dodgers dream.

@  Saxon : (09 Dec 2017 - 11:01)

I'm still wondering how an outfield of Judge, Stanton and Bryce Harper is going to play out starting next season...all are RFers, does Harper go to CF with Judge going to LF?

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 11:01)

Joel Sherman‏ @Joelsherman1
Heard Castro is only veteran going to #Marlins for Stanton.
Rest of deal is prospecds, but not #Yankees best.

@  Saxon : (09 Dec 2017 - 11:00)

Mets do an awful lot of "talked with" a team about so and so...and accomplish nothing...Yanks have virtually no rumor mill and get the best available player for pennies on the dollar

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 10:59)

Marc Carig‏ @MarcCarig
Also, Starlin Castro will probably be on the block. So, there should be some second basemen available.
Mets could also move Cabrera to 2B and look for 3B but I hear they are more geared toward 2B.

@  Drucifer : (09 Dec 2017 - 10:57)

Marc Carig‏ @MarcCarig
To be clear, Mets have had most dialogue with Tigers regarding Kinsler to this point.

Pull out that katana, WCMF. The Wilpons need to either break out the checkbook or sell the team, because without serious upgrades the Mets will be irrelavant in NYC.

@  jeffmetsfan : (08 Dec 2017 - 21:01)

and then Stanton rejected, so they went with next best offer Giants...now the Marlins are in trouble. Dodgers may be the only shot left and they have all the leverage

@  jeffmetsfan : (08 Dec 2017 - 21:00)

my guess the Cards offered best return

@  jeffmetsfan : (08 Dec 2017 - 20:59)

if CC weren't old. slow and fat...and didn't whine because batters bunted on him because of being old, slow, fat and feeble...then it might make a bit of sense...but a NL pitcher that can't move, and then makes it even more obvious that it's an Achillies heel type of handicap...not a good idea
