Listen: Mets, Phillies And Bryce Harper discussed on The WOR Sports Zone with Pete McCarthy
"Are in. You follow the phillys closely the NFL Patrick Corbin kinda surprising added to the mix now. The Washington nationals. Josh Donaldson the Braves you get canot Sikora, the Phillies still want to spend more money. It's insane. The way this division is changing things out. It's fun, man. They're not allowed divisions in baseball. Where four teams are trying to win. These teams are really trying to win. The nationals has been one of the most active teams right with Corbin to catchers, gums and Suzuki to former closures Trevor Rosenthal Barak law. And they don't even know what's going to happen with Bryce Harper yet. The Braves had been really aggressive. Donaldson and McCain that's to really significant moves the Phillies. Are they having spent all this stupid money yet? But they have traded coming, gene. Was a really good shortstop. And then there are the Mets. I think it's a really interesting question now to ask who's the favorite in the NFL east to be determined. I would say we could see you Harper and back in Washington Machado could. Harper could end up in Philly too. Yeah. I mean, there's a lot that could still happen here. So. They will pick a favorite right now. It kind of feels like a fool's errand. But what did you think of the Conoco deal for the Mets? They gave up a huge prospect in Jared Kellner was just there. What sixth overall pick of the draft last year? Did you do you like that aggressiveness right now from the Mets? I don't like the aggressiveness. I specifically like this deal. But I love that Brody van wagon has walked in the door and said we're going to win. We're gonna do stuff. We're not gonna act like a metal always acted. We're gonna make things happen. And I I just didn't Meyer that in as a trade for anybody in that job in any leader to to set that kind of example to do stuff with this kind of energy and to reignite the fan base to get the owners excited like all that is meaningful. I I'm a skeptic on Robbie canot over the long haul on this deal. I still think he's a good player. He's still going to be good player. Forty is a stretch this league with no D H. There's definitely some stuff to worry about here. But as people keep reminding me, nobody knows Robby better than the guy. Used to be his agent. He knows exactly what he brings it at the table on and off the field. We he's he knows exactly what happened in that the suspension right in a way that no other general manager could possibly know for sure. And there there are reasons to think that Brody knows stuff that other people don't know like I don't think twenty eight other teams are making that deal. But there's a reason he made it and Edwin d as just had one two three four five greatest seasons any relief pitcher has ever had and he's under control for four years, and he's awesome. So we know there's more coming. That's what that's the part of this that we have to remember, even if we don't like everything about this particular deal. It's a deal that speaks volumes for what happened and what's about to happen. The worst place to be is in the middle right in the Mets been in the middle of the last two years that they had to make bold moves to get out of there one way or the other why not go for it. Now, maybe you only have two or three year window before canot hits that decline phase. But. Give it a shot with the great pitching that they have. And it's for the most part healthy at the moment. Yeah. I think you're seeing why the wilpon hired this guy. You know, what gets early on? He's he's been on the job for fifteen minutes. But they clearly have a level of trust in him that he's going to do the right thing."
