I so want an Astro Jersey with Beer on the back. But that only works if he makes the show for us...

Down to the Rays and Stros for Wheeler.


Come on Luhnow, swoop in and take him at the last minute

These two years of stacked outfield is our window, with maybe a 2023 run assuming we get an outfielder, Verlander continues to defy Father Time and we magically develop some pitching or replace Cole.

also keep in mind...the Astros are much closer to "payroll prison" in 2019...then they were in 2017.

not as much flexibility right now due to the JV, Altuve, and Bregman contracts. Gonna need the farmhands to fill the roster in 2 years or less

The Mets aren't dumb enough to hold onto Wheeler unless he's indicated he'll sign an extension.

Totally agree with that, I want atleast a year of control for Tucker.

First time here?
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

We need to tell the Mets we're not going to wait till the last minute, we already did that with Verlander and mlb front office gave us serious grief about it. Here's the offer, take it or leave it...you have 5 minutes to decide.

Which is ok if the Yankees really don't end up getting a starter.

You don't fully understand Luhnow and the long term approach. We aren't playing for a two year window. We're playing for a long term of perpetual contention in the playoffs.

Outside of the Dodgers the NL is wide open.

If Giants are dealing relievers, they might as well take any offer better than the pick from the QO they will offer him this offseason. Rojas, Fisher, and a non-Urquidy/Whitley arm for MadBum/Dyson.

i saw it mentioned that a deal could possibly be done after the deadline if teams are "already in talks'. for whatever that means.

So what do you guys end up thinking about a one time trade deadline at July 31 if no big names or big teams end up improving themselves with impact players?

How much we blew it and will be lucky to make the WC now.

Honestly could see the Mets leadership being dumb enough to talk themselves into going for the wildcard this year instead of selling their rentals.

That doesn't make sense. That's not how a deadline works.

That's your takeaway? Arguably the best team in the AL, maybe baseball, and the Astros will be "lucky" to prove as much... ok.
