Don't give a shit about anyone else besides Kelenic. Not sure how I feel about the trade.

Is it me or is the math completely wrong? The Mets are getting $20m from the Ms. That means they're still paying Cano $100m over the next 5 years. They still have to pay whoever is replacing Bruce and Swarzak on the roster.

I actually really like the move for the Mets and I'm usually pretty down on them. Not Frozen levels down, but down...

Mariners now have a committed salary of $38M in 2021, down from $146M this coming year. With some good decisions in the free agent market (lol) and if most of the prospects turn out, maybe 2021 is the start of something.

I am convincing myself more and more that this trade was both good and necessary.

It was a good trade for the Mariners in general.
you managed to trade a cheat with a lot of money on his contract for an actual return while performing a big salary dump by just giving up a good reliever.

I'm not a fan of the deal at all, I'm expecting Cano to put up decent numbers next season and then proceed to fall off a cliff.

Watching him play until 40 is gonna be fun :/

Do we know what the Braves realistic budget is for this offseason? Do they have enough leeway to get a Keuchel + a high end bullpen arm + a Brantley in addition to Donaldson?

This is such an awful move. Great. Now we are in the exact same situation the Mariners were in. So if we don't win now as we try and trade away our second best player because the organization doesn't like him, that's perfectly logical.

This franchise is determined to be a joke .

Kluber? WTF why

Just keep Syndergaard and have the best rotation in the NL. Sign Miller and Ottavino and one of the two good free agent catchers. Boom.

Yeah, I was "ok "with trading Syndergaard before the Cano/Diaz trade.But not now. Keep your best players for the next 2 years. MAYBE Trade Wheeler if someone wants to dish a good OF for him.

I'm fine with the trade but it requires them to go balls deep and I don't know if they will do it. They need to sign Grandal and another top free agent at the very least. Half assing and acting as if the trade alone will make them an awesome team would be a worst case scenario.

Still need Mcneil and Alonso to be for real and Cespedes to not be dead for the team to be good but I like the boldness.

It would be so incredibly stupid if the Mets turn around and trade Syndergaard now after acquiring Cano.

Don't even need to trade Wheeler. Sign AJ Pollock.

This trade makes no sense to me, so I am just going to wait until it actually becomes official to start getting excited. Adonis Medina or some prospect from the Phillies has to be included in this deal.

Think the trade for the Mets is great honestly. Fans have gotten so preconditioned to overvalue prospects they ignore the fact the Mets got maybe the best reliever in baseball and a 2B who managed to put up 3 WAR in half a season last year.

The cost wasn't that overwhelming and honestly its time the Mets stopped operating like they're the Rays when it comes to payroll. Mets FO has been insanely passive for the last half decade and that approach didn't pay off at all.

The Mariners are basically willing to do anything and everything to dump payroll. That's the way you read those trades.

If the Mariners are wanting to unload Seager, the Cards should explore exactly what the Mests just did. Try to find a way to unload Fowler for Seager, but work in a trade for Haniger.

But hey, we'll get Brantley and like it.
