The Mets might want to think twice about wanting Colorado sluggers Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki.
It’s looking like there won’t be any major moves in Flushing. At least not ahead of the July 31 deadline.
As far as what teams are looking for from the Mets when it comes to trade talk, I think we can all spell this together: an eight-letter word that begins with “P.”
Monday’s starter, Bartolo Colon, might be the most attractive trade bait. But Sandy Alderson suggested the veteran may be an even more valuable asset in the offseason.
According to Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan, the Mets are willing to send Noah Syndergaard — the 13th best prospect in all of baseball, according to MLB.com — in a deal for Tulowitzki.
“It’s a short drive from Philly,” the 29-year-old told The Denver Post. “I’m with my family. I wanted to see (Derek) Jeter play one more time.”
Are the Mets ready to go all in? The New York franchise with a mid-market payroll could be looking to add one of Colorado’s big bats, according to the Post.
If there was a team in New York that could afford to take a risk, and probably should at least send out a feeler to the Rockies, it is the Mets.
There’s no reason to wait anymore. We’ve waited long enough. Make your move, Sandy, and let’s see what this club can do.
Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the National League’s mid-season team MVPs.
CBS Local Sports breaks down the top players at shortstop for your fantasy baseball draft.
Troy Tulowitzki grew up idolizing Derek Jeter. It’s the reason he wears No. 2. Now Tulowitzki hears daily chatter about possibly taking over for the retiring Jeter at shortstop in New York.
For what feels like a lifetime, Mets fans have been hearing that THIS is the offseason. THIS is when it will all change. 2014 will be the year that the Mets FINALLY field a team that can contend. You’re up, Mr. Alderson.
Josh Rutledge will be a valuable asset for the Rockies this year, and maybe even a star somewhere down the line.
Though I know many fans have given up on this team, there are many who still watch the games; so many who still care. The players should care about them if not about themselves.
