GM Brodie Van Wagenen says New York Mets finalizing agreement with quality control coach Luis Rojas to make him manager
"Joined as the match have filled their vacancy with the son of Felipe Alou Louise roe Haas arm and you could not most Mets fans over with a feather because this is a guy was a quality control coach last year obviously a tremendous family lineage of bilingual individual who can relate to virtually everyone in the clubhouse does the team has managed it up you know if you will smaller places than the fishbowl York's that's rolling dice man because as Harold Reynolds of MLB network pointed out there ready to win now they got away now this is it certainly Syndergaard might not be around for much longer although the other guys supposedly not really Bobby Axelrod but has a resume Bobbi acts Roddy's going to be the the new full time or the mats has all the money to spend you don't have any problems like the previous years so you never know did I mean
At Trade Deadline, the Mets Keep Their Arms and Vow to Contend
"Can you believe that we got to the deadline and the mets turned out to be buyers because they sold nothing. They didn't trade syndergaard. They didn't Trae Zack Wheeler that in trade todd frazier. I guess they traded Jason Vargas yes but still the mets basically were buyers before the deadline. I don't get it Sarah. I don't get it and honestly even though people people were somewhat high on the mets entering this year. I don't think I even would have believed that if you told me that on March first hey we're going to get to the trade deadline. The mets are just GonNa get Marcus Stroman. Okay get rid of Jason Burs like I never I never would have believed that. I was pretty surprised I feel like they had some players that you know teams would've wanted. I think I even saw a rumor or about Luis avalon on twitter last night. I forget who it was saying. That teams are interested. I mean I don't understand necessarily not not doing those things and it's it's. It's just interesting. I mean now they're in this interesting situation with Zack Wheeler where I don't know that they're really even in the position where they would want to pay him the qualifying offer and if they if he does take it and if he doesn't then I'm sure they're not going to be in a position to really negotiate with what he's going to want. So that's an odd one one and I don't know I feel like they're just so many moves out there that can be made and one thing that we saw today is a lot of those kind of August I two thirty thirty first deals sort of happen today because they can't happen you know moving forward with the new way that it has this year like that Corey Dickerson trade to me seemed like a waiver kind of trade trade that we might see on August fifteenth and a previous year and is interesting with the mets didn't even attempt something like that. I mean one name that stuck out to me was John Ryan Murphy who is going going to the braves. I feel like you know he would probably be appreciably better for the mess right now. Then Wilson Ramos or Tomas Nido even if he were in a backup role you know maybe NATO's role and it was interesting to me that they didn't even come through on a on a move like that because if you are kind of claiming to go all in and then I would expect more on that side at the the very least so it's it's really an odd one to make one move and have it be like the big splash got this all going and then that's basically it. I would love to be the agent for Marcus Marcus Stroman right now because you talk about emotional leverage that he has on the mets during the wintertime. If you were to say you know what I'm looking for a contract and try to bully them into doing something because that deal was sort of the centerpiece of their whole summer kind of like Brodie van wagon in did last summer on behalf of Jacob degrom. He bullied the mets into an

And that's what happened on Mondays we get into our news notes of the day, Brodie van wagon and the general manager of the Mets came out, of course at a time when there's so much speculation about Mickey Callaway. Would he be retained as manager? Well, there was a plot twist Brodie van wagon and announce that you in assessment is got hurt on his ranch on Saturday night. We received news from him that he suffered an accident on his ranch in port Saint Lucie, and suffered ankle fractures. So he is here in New York. He's at HSS he's being evaluated and we'll have more information on his prognosis, and what, what his future is hopefully in the in the coming days. But right now that's that's the story from his standpoint. And what the information is that we have at this point in time. So our focus currently is to try to get him the best medical care. And then hopefully hopefully get a better idea of what this means for his future, both in two thousand nineteen and beyond. So Josh did you hear the interesting phrase right in there? That's his story to story. Wonder if you can read anything. There could be some more plot to it's coming up. And of course you Mike Puma does a great job covered the Mets for the New York Post tweeted out a little bit later that the Mets are looking into the language of cesspit his contract and determine whether or not they might have some relief in salary was violation of the contract. And the Mets should know this better than anyone Josh because, of course, the person negotiated the contractors Brodie van wagon and you don't say this is Asian. Look, you just can't make it up. He also Brody did said, Mickey Callaway is the manager for the foreseeable future. And we'll be talking about that coming up of Tyler Kettner who covers baseball for the New York Times. And that's Mets played the nationals last night. It was a little tense. There's stuff going on in that game out of meeting Todd Frazier got into a war of words. But in the end the Mets prevailed, the first pitch sip lives up to ventilate bay sent Carlos golden stores, third common expect bricks out of a one fifteen swinging at the first pitch.

"That is Mitch GM former super aging Brodie van wagon as he addressed the media yesterday Mets back whole beat the nets last night task before the game announcing that NSS, but who is recovering from double heel surgery suffered an accident Saturday night. They won't go into depth. The good news was he wasn't on a horse the, the Mets claim but stepped into a whole had a violent fall and suffered multiple fractures to is, I think it was his right. Ankle guy has. You don't especially say, well, what do I start? Well, try to getting there is no beginning with the Mets. It's just it's the constant beginning. It's just never ends. So if something never ends, it's almost like there's no beginning because it's the wind and nets the s show that the Mets. Aw. And. I don't even know. Don't I'm sick of it. I'm sick. I'm going to be a dodger fan. Yeah. Still still. Now comes down to you know, we ever see cesspits play dmed uniform game. You're not gonna see them this year. And he's twenty nine point five million dollars in the fascinating thing is that Jack and it was his agent when he signed this contract extension with the Mets the Mets conceivably go after it of what's left on the deal. They can surely get money back from insurance can go after TASR deal that he did because of this being a non baseball injury. And to find out more details. Terms of how this exactly transpired same say, presser that wagons out there, giving Mickey Callaway voted governance. Mckee pull. Mickey he gotta go bye bye, sir.

"Title four on the fan and a very good Wednesday morning to you the midday show, Joe beningo and Roberts, eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six is the phone number here. Of course, the one o'clock CNBC, we'll come your way don't bring early on the other side of the glass. Of course, Jeff is still on vacation. You'll be back with you on Monday. When I will go on vacation. Got to open up with with with this. And of course, the the story you saw yesterday where basically Brodie van wagon and saying that Jacob degrom has basically said his people have said is that he has to have a contract a contract on long term contract. I'll before opening day. Otherwise is not want to talk about any contract extension until after the season is over. And I look if you're a met fan, and we all want Bryce, we all want Manny Machado, at least most of us. Do I guess maybe not every met fan wants those guys? Now you've been a guy like kimbrel. We talked about those guys would be nice, but that's probably going to happen. But even more important than that. And probably the most important thing is getting Jacob degrom. Don long-term. Now one year arbitration deal this year, he's making seventeen million dollars. But this is something to Mets have to do. I mean, I I don't think there's any question about it. Look the guy just come off a great year Cy Young award winner. He's probably the best pitcher in baseball right now. Ninety certainly in the top three. It's not even not even debatable had a historic year. Especially for a guy that only one ten games. I mean, it was just unbelievable. What he was able to do last year was as consistent as any pitcher could ever be no doubt about it. And he's a homegrown MAC, and he's a homegrown met. And as we all know homegrown Mets, don't generally played her entire career with the Mets as a matter of fact, outside of David Wright, no other homegrown met. That is you know of any kind of significant some you wanna give me Ed crank pool. That's all. Well, and good. And it was a fine player in terrific, man. And all that. But as far as a guide, it was a real major impact high player, you know, only David Wright fills that Bill. I mean, everybody else went somewhere else, you know. And I actually got Tom Seaver in a trade from the Braves, but he never played for another a major league team except the Mets until he got traded to Cincinnati. So we've seen so many of them go whether it's Seaver whether it's Kouzmin whether it's dot Gooden, whether it's Darrell strawberry. I mean, the list goes on and on doesn't matter who the guy is all these guys who came up through the San Jose. Reyes doesn't matter who it is. You know, none of them. None of them played their entire career with the Mets. And this is something you want to see done with Jacob degrom. This is a no-brainer. You don't wanna be messing with him. And especially, you know, you're hearing rumblings, and I don't know if I necessarily buy that. That would do this. But you hearing rumblings that you're on the ground might limit his own his own like a pitch count in innings. Limit this year to maximize his health and maximize efficiency if you will going forward. I mean, that's not. I mean think about that. Look, I don't know if I could really blame a guy for that. I mean, at least he'd be out there pitching every fifth day at least that as opposed to a guy like Levy on bell decides, you know, what I'm going to maximize by value by not playing for the entire year. And it stands little different. We talking about an NFL running back as opposed to a pitcher in baseball. But God knows that pitchers in baseball get hurt even though it's different kinds of injuries. They get hurt just as much as running backs in football, do although their careers are obviously a lot longer picture. It's careers a lot longer. There's no question about it. But this is something that the Mets have to get done, and he can't mess around here. And you don't want to get into situation where you don't sign him before the year is done before the year starts, and now, you know, even both sides say, I wouldn't be a distraction, you'll be no distraction. If it goes into the year, they're gonna give you that you know, that that speak, and that that should be all and all that company lying the party line. If you will. The politically, correct. The comments whatever you want to say. But you know, that that's something that's going to be hanging over and hanging over the team all year long. And you don't let the media is gonna ask questions about it. It's going to be brought up at times, you know, it is. I mean, there's no doubt. Even even though as the Grammy said, hey, look, if I don't want to talk about it. If we don't get it done by opening day. We'll talk about it at the end of the year, but the Mets can't mess around here. They got two years left. He's got two years left before he becomes a free agent two years, and you don't wanna mess with this guy. Do you really want to see him pitch somewhere else? He wants to go pitch for the Yankees. You want to see in pitch Phillies? He wants to see him pitch for the nationals. The dodgers the Red Sox. I mean, we want to see Jacob degrom in any uniform any other uniform with the exception of the New York. Mets don't I'm sure I speak for just about every met fan. There is that doesn't want to see big Jake pitcher for somebody else. So this is something that's Mets after doing its job. You're gonna cost them somewhere, and enable it if thirty million bucks a year. Probably you'll probably looking at five years, maybe thirty million dollars probably something like that. Yeah. The grabs twenty-five anymore. I mean, he's thirty at the guy. I think he's going to be thirty one to thirty or thirty one or he's going to be thirty one. So you're talking about a guy that would be pitching five deal till he's like thirty five thirty six thirty seven whatever whatever it may be. But there's no reason to think that he won't be effective as long as he stays healthy. And I don't know if we're ever going to see another year last year was a historic year one point seven zero Yara all how many games in a row is gone, six innings or more. We could go on and on with it. And he did have that little glitch last year we missed a couple of thoughts. He had that injury. When he got hurt swinging the bat. But fortunately when we all thought because we're met fans, and we always think especially when it comes to injuries. We always immediately think the absolute worst. We all thought about here. It is. You know, he's gonna be out how long Jake's going to be on, you know. You're going to pitch the rest of the year when you're a met fan. The minute. You hear a guy gets a hangnail guys constipated, and you met fancy you guys done for the season. That's it. Of course. So look that he got through that without an issue. But again, the thing the thing the thing is here that this is one of our guys wanna four medicine history to franchise to win the Cy Young award the other three guys none of the other three guys finish their career with the Mets. Whether it would see whether it was a little different situation RA Dicky because he kind of he was kind of a transient met. Anyway, if you really want to look at it that way. Three or four years. You got here off the scrap heap for the most part, and then, you know, in what turns out to be a brilliant trade that trade with Toronto that winds up getting the Mets Noah Syndergaard forget about Travis. No, you know, if it was just Dickey for synagogue. It was terrific terrific trade, and that's pretty much the way that trade is working out right now. So Dicky kind of is a little different situation at Seaver or doc. But, but but again, the bottom line is you don't want to mess with this guy you want this guy to be our guy. I want to see I wanna I wanna be there. I want I want to see the day when big Jake's number goes up there with Mike Piazza, and Tom Seaver, and hopefully David Wright, Casey Stangl, Joe Hodges and all of that. That's what you wanna see. That's what you want to see some day. And you know, who knows maybe we'll see Jake and hall of fame some days, probably not probably not at that point yet news career. But hopefully as time goes on maybe he can get there. So to me this is something to Mets after the. Yeah, we all want to see what he, of course, or Machado here. No doubt about it. We love I love how much would as met fans. Would we love to see them really open? The vault up and get it done for those guys. But even more important is getting done for our guy the AC to staff the draining Cy Young award winner. Probably right now the face of the New York Mets. He probably is right now. So to me, this is something that Mets need to do. They need to address this Jeff wilpon, Brodie van wagon. They need to get it done sit downers agents. It's funny because Brody, of course, is H E last year, but get down with the CIA people and get this whole thing down because you know, you just don't want to drop the ball here if you've met see just don't ever want to see Jake degrom pitching for another team or you know, having to end his career somewhere else other than in New York bets. So we'll talk more about that. As the show goes on John hayman's gonna join us later on the show talk to him about it. We're going to have BT Bradenton is gonna join us later. We'll talk about a lot of different things would Brandon Tierney. Saint John's who survived last night. Had had a lead for most of the game. And then so Butler come all the way back tie game. And in Saint John's was able to pull it out and survive another survive in advance winning his second in overtime to stay on track. At least right at this moment for the NCAA tournament. So we'll talk some some Saint John's wood him not a great night last night for all hockey team. Specifically the I'll do one team that's playing meaningful regular season games. If he will right now. Was a tough game last night the buffalo in buffalo, but still lost no ground because Washington also lost. So they stay with that three point lead in their division and arranges devils both losses while even on the Rangers did a nice job coming back to old deficit came back to take the lead only to lose it late in the game last night against the Winnipeg Jets, we can discuss a little bit of that as the show goes on. I mentioned need the nets than I really need a win against Cleveland to wrap up the pre all star break part of the season and finished the first half of the year with a winning winning record is right now, you're at twenty nine and twenty nine and, you know, two games on a row, but you need to beat the lousy Cavaliers you gotta get that done especially coming off that very tough loss. They had in Toronto. A couple of days ago. So we can talk about that the Knicks, of course to got two more games. The next the Philly tonight. Philly coming off that lost Boston yesterday in Philly. They play Philly tonight at the garden then play in Atlanta tomorrow. In Atlanta to wrap up and we'll see if they can have a win a game. The rest of the year. But that is well is on the table. Also the stuff with Antonio Brown who has requested. Now has basically said goodbye to Steeler nation and says he wants to trade in a great a great article today by the great Mike Vaccaro that the jets should want. No part of this guy. And I certainly don't I'm not giving up any first round picks for Antonio Brown. You know, I've mentioned this before he was he's a problem in Pittsburgh. What's he going to be here? You know? What would it be with the jets and we've already seen similar situation with Santoni? Oh homes. So I. Another another Steeler. So I, you know. Ex-stihler? And we know what happened with him. He one pretty good year real yogurt is first year for the jets. And then when he gets paid him he's popping champagne, and it was all over after that as far as Santoni, ahome home. So that's something else. That's out there that we can talk about so lots to do today. Whatever. But of course, the big story to me anyways that Mets having to get the deal done with big Jake degrom. All right. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six but then go in the mid day. Evan on vacation. We'll break here. Come back with your phone calls. John Hayman coming up in the eleven o'clock hour BT at noon, bingo in the mid day back after this. State farm.

"And it makes sense that that kind of ambition would turn into greed would turn into on. All I want to run this. I want to own this. I don't wanna just represent players. I want to own the players who wouldn't want that though. I mean who wouldn't want an opportunity to do that. That's fine. You might want the opportunity my customer, I wouldn't want my customer to want an agent as the general manager agent as the owner of the team. I think it depends on the team Brodie van wagon and the Mets GM. I mean, nothing's worked for the Mets. So maybe this guy will figure out there. And he's got a great head of. Haired, a great name the, Dan, I'm telling you, I'm on the van wagon a great. You realize he gave that opinion just to get to that joke. You realize that that was the only reason to do that like we were going to end no matter what? With them on the van wagon at once GM's name, again, Brodie van wagon. That is why that is tripling redundant white guy. Because it's not just the first name. It's the Vaughn. And it's the wagon. It's fan the band wagon. I mean, he's wheeled in deal. And he really is. He's made a million moves. I don't know of any more good. But we are moving to shake it. Moving and shaking. Go ahead and put it on the poll air more the Mets moving and shaking. So you're good with an agent being your general manager. So for me, I'm good because the Mets have been a disaster for so long on the Laker fan up. Probably not very already. Logic is so bad and the Mets have been terrible for awhile. It totally makes sense. Then we put a squirrel in charge. Now, a screws never gotten it wrong. Put a squirrel in as the general manager. Bore criticizing the Lakers as if it didn't work out. But it absolutely did work out. They got LeBron James. That's right. It's a success already the World Series like four years ago. You gotta terrible forever. You gotta do something though might like you got ninety got LeBron James right now do something figure it out lay on the brand James. Yeah. But golden it's got a better team. No matter what you put together there. Now, I understand Dan's point. And it was well thought out and thoroughly investigated, and they got LeBron James. So that's an L. That's right. That is the job. The job is not to work hard every day. The job is to get LeBron James. It's not do. I have this right because I don't want to get this wrong. But can you look up a bomb shelter Hawaii and Magic Johnson? And we've done that before we've done this segment before when that that a fake bomb threat went out on mobile alert missile a missile threat in Hawaii where people were taking two bunkers and shelters in Hawaii because they could not correct. This notification that popped up on everybody's phone scaring many. There was a photo that showed up on the internet of one Magic Johnson in one of these shelter.

I'm not even going to do it. I won't even do it. Then because everyone knows it already. Right. Why would I repeat the story then what's the other part? Nope.

"Brodie van wagon says internally the state they are the favorites in the division. Is he right externally? He lost his damn Matthew at Sussex going to start a soft today. Matthew what's going on? But. What's up? I'm thinking was you know, the Mets keep saying they aren't done yet. And we'll the addition of Rama's and even is much. I'm saying his name, right, right. He davis. Roger davis. Series. Literally translated Marlon Byrd. Go ahead. Well, I mean Mets potentially, you know, bomber garrison house expendable, even they can't get twenty nine million next year. Trade him maybe offer salary. They thought more money you spend, you know, they're saving five million. They can find somebody with salary and if. Probably get a reliever for a bunion. Any expendable Mets have trae valium Frazier. You don't need 'em McNeil. I don't think there's a ton of trade value in what they have right now. And I gotta tell you. I don't know that I would be in a hurry to trade, lagaras media. I'm not saying that he's a great player. But he's he's Fender. He's useful player, obviously could defend well, he hits the lefty pitching. Well, I mean, the problem is he's just not going to be healthy or you can't expect them to be healthy. So you need backup. So fluky to its toll stubbed his toe. Yeah. But he's always had something. Guys, defensively he's not a guy with mind having around hit left. He's all those things. I don't think he's a great player. But if the Mets had had a centerfield combination of lagaras and Billy Hamilton have they gone down that road ship, sailed AJ Pollock is still think Adam Jones will be a good spot Jones more than Pollock. Yeah. Because he's reliable. Yeah. More alive. But Pollock is. You know, he's got a lot of pop. He does he does. But does too. It's not like he's without now. Let's go to Eric is in Marlton. New Jersey sorry about you wanna. Good. I'm just saying what what what a contract for a guy like Adam Jones, look like it was weird because he cuts and mess. Everything up man that was such a. Why is stupid money to mess? Everybody. Also, I forget where I heard it would absolutely credit them. But there was a discussion about that. And there were people that thought all that's probably going to be a two year twelve million dollar deal or something like that and three for fifty and it completely. I mean that was the stupid Bonnie that John was talking about spending. There might be more stupid money to be spent. Let's go to Eric in Marlton. New Jersey, Eric what's up, but I'm a big fan of the show. It's my favorite show. Thank you. Got period. So I I agree with you. I'd rather have Adam Jones too. But I wouldn't trade guarantee that you. I mean, there's they have a shortage of outfielder. So we can't really trade. And I love you. I think you're brilliant career. I'm a met fan like you. And I don't like that Brody may dot com. Need a bullseye? But I mean, we should embrace what's going on. This is the best off season. I can remember them having it I feel like a decade. So you're being a little negative. I love you. And I'm not taking a shot, but you being a little negative. We have to embrace that. This is the talk with something positive, which we know never happened. But what it is Eric, and listen, I'm trying not to be negative because I do like what they're doing. I I'm one of those people that wishes that they adjust spent a little bit more money for Grondahl. I think the Grondahl would have been a better book have been better defensively, and he is more reliable. I guess that's it. I'm not trying to be negative. I think Wilson Ramos is clearly an upgrade this is not pooh-poohing on Rama's. I just thought that Grondahl was the best available catcher. And it's just money and draft pick in the international bonus money, and maybe the upgrade that juice wasn't worth the squeeze. But it just seemed like if you're going out shopping, and you want to upgrade the catcher position why not get the best guy much though, considering what just happened with Grondahl in the postseason for a four year deal Machado. I mean what he do in the World Series nothing and people are going to sign him to three hundred million. I think you just really can't go just by that look at his regular seasons. Look at how reliable he's been there yet pass balls. But so does Wilson almost a passed ball? So you can't walk you guys. I don't think wrandell is such a huge upgrade over ramo. I just don't possible it's possible. And I think that's I think that's probably why the Mets wedded the direction that they did. Because there just wasn't enough of a leap to make the have more average annual value and the traffic and the bonus money, I totally get it. I just think the Grondahl is the better guy Johnson Manhattan, John what's going on? Hey, what's going on guys? So there's a couple of things we got very skeptical at first I think obviously coming to basically a new field. But. Listen to this driving a little bit crazy. I is. Coming out. And sometimes when he talks which is a little bit crazy, but the second point, and I wanna make bothering the most of this guy's a master manipulator any. Very very spotty. He is constantly sane. But if he's constantly saying. In order to make certain that creative word is getting very very kicked off very very quickly. 'cause what you doing? Does it work? But if you want to really. What? Definitely because you know, what? The Red Sox Nashville. They're not they're making. Mediocre? John. Can I just put up for one second? I I do think the Yankees have made creative moves I would call what they did in two thousand fifteen very creative. They basically avoided an entire rebuild by trading away. Some of their key pieces aroldis Chapman even getting back. And they end up replenishing the entire farm system. Basically, I would really think about the only difference is the cash. Right now. Favorite has got twenty year track record? Also, you might you might be phenomenal. What he does. But if you're you're not you're saying about being creative too. And that turns into mediocrity. Edward D has looked like that was pretty creative creative bring back and a lot of money. But you got maybe the best closing on the game. He keeps saying they have brought in four all star players, and they're not all starts from twenty years ago. You know? I mean, listen canal an all star in twenty seventeen these other guys last two three years. So this past year. So I don't have any issue with that. I think he has been creative. And at the same time has made this team better. I didn't think the creativity was a dirty word only here. At times. But I do think that I'm late. Yeah. I do think that creatively though. I thought it because creativity. If you really want to examine the word when it comes to baseball teams in the Mets, a particular fans are just going to take creativity as another word for cheap. Yeah. That's all. There has already made the I don't think that they've made cheap moves. No. I don't think they made sheep move. Well, not being at Machado Harper. If you want to maybe Harper wasn't the fit but Machado. I don't know if you if you are of the opinion that the Mets should get one of those players than anything. They do is going to be cheap. Yeah. Absolutely true. Absolutely true. All right. Let's get Andy Martino in here. Of course, from Andy, as you know is s Anwar's MLB insider, you can tune in tonight at six PM for baseball night in New York for the latest offseason news involving the Mets Yankees and key division rivals. Also, Mackey gray. Tonight. We'll be on tonight. How about that? I hadn't Email yet. What a pleasant surprise they go. I'm happy to come by Cheryl, little knowledge and wisdom with everybody. And they go on with my day. Well, we are happy to have you and look forward to that knowledge in my son now doing this like TV radio thing where we get complement each other for a while. Right. Except it's got the tone in your I really believe heartland hard time sharing that hey compliment. I heard that two of your other. I didn't listen to them. But I heard of your other WFAN personalities were saying that I wanted to trade of New York. You guys know where you are. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Okay. We're we're allowed to name them. I think the person who thought you were trying to trade Noah Syndergaard was Noah Syndergaard. Wow. That's a whole other thing. But Evan should know better. I mean, come on the media literacy. The difference between information, and advocacy, and Joe whenever you should know that. Listen. We'll pass it along. That's okay. Listen, Andy, let's start first of all with the option of going with Rama's as opposed to what the price was. Now Brody was on with Joe and Evan earlier and did say that it was one or the other not necessarily both in a package meaning resort or Nimmo in a package for real new toe. And that's what kept him away. Ultimately, what was the price level that kept them away from real Muto and put them in the direction of? Ramos. It was going to be one of those guys. It was gonna be Syndergaard either straight up or three team trade. You may have heard something about a three team trade involving the Yankees last week. Talking about there. There were plenty scenarios that would have cost quite a bit. Now, what no-one no-one what are you the real motel is significantly better? And the numbers don't necessarily reflect offensively. But just as an overall player younger defense presence. That was the guy that they were really hoping to get, but they're very happy. I think what do they get because as pretty good round Moses and be he doesn't cost you a guy who who needed to be or who was slated to be at least a productive player on your roster next year with all those things, but look they left the winter meetings at the end of the week with ongoing talks with the San Diego Padres about a three team deal that would've sent Syndergaard to San Diego Padres prospects to Miami real move to the match so four days after the Yankee talks, this is going on still to get real moved out. So they were trying and then there was stuff. I was still hearing about money Grondahl going into the weekend. So they continue to weigh. Everything and it was just the lack of having to give up players in the case of removed. Go and give the guy four years in the case of Grondahl who we all know what a terrible postseason he had. And with Ronald stay like, this is talked about a lot today conference. But I heard a few days ago to he really likes it in person meeting from us. They liked it. He had information insight about each Mets pitcher several statistic Mets pitchers at least. And that he was an impressive leader and presence in that meeting. So you combine all those factors, and you can see why they thought it made sense to do what they did. We're talking with Andy Martino. Okay. Seeing that the payrolls about one hundred forty five million now in the recent history. Andy the payroll has been like one fifty five how much more money, do you think rodeo Brodie van wagon and has to spend. Well, he's been circumspect about that. You may have noticed not not trying to set a target publicly. And I haven't heard anything privately that they want to set a target either. So I wouldn't be surprised if they continue to be what my understanding was that the payroll on the oldest which is that it's more of a soft target, then a hard number. That's ownership. Doesn't tend to say here's your budget. They tend to say, okay, bring us, and here's some parameters. Numbering us your thoughts bring us opportunities. And we'll take them case by case. Now, obviously. Ownership is very happy with higher that they made you can see that you're gonna Dacian so far is on board with this relatively aggressive off season. And I think that means that then wagon is going to be able to talk them into perhaps Sydney feeding where they were out with all their sin, and we'll see how much by, but it's not specific number so much a vibe that he's got the credibility with his bosses right now to bring them. Thanks. And then maybe get an okay on them. Now. What you're describing is the honeymoon. Phase. What us Mary talk about? And they're feeling good about the hires a lot of energy and positive things being said about the Mets. I'm sure they like that. We know that in past the Mets would be willing. If they're close at the trade deadline and make moves to be winning to be winners. Brody saying that he believes they're the best team in the division. If somebody falls back. Do you think they'll give him the okay to go far past the budget? And if so how far do you think that rope can be? I think that when you're talking about Bart adding in season payroll. I guess the advantage of that is even big money guy. You're you're you presumably training for guys walk year. Usually the way at work since you're paying perhaps somebody we don't it's hard to project you that guy would be at this point. So what the exact number would be. But I definitely think that if they're in it. Don't have that flexibility midseason. I it's funny. I haven't thought about yet because we're so focused on a day to day, but you don't trade for thirty six year old Robertson Cano to not be all in on this exact year. So they can sniff the playoff similar to what they would Alderson do with trae in two thousand fifteen I would imagine they held onto their pieces to other than Jared Kalmyk the prospect so got nemo lagaras got into got all the guys that Wheeler all the guys are trading. So they can actually get creative off the big league roster midseason if something works, well, even before that, right? What about a guy like Adam Jones in AJ, Paul after knowing what mccutchen just got in in in Philadelphia kind of messing up the market..

"The fan. Eight seven seven thirty thirty seven sixty six sixty six we head to the fourth quarter out at MetLife stadium, and you are getting a spirited. High caliber high quality effort from the jets may not be good enough to win. But it is sixteen and fifteen. The Texans are clinging to a one point lead. Jet defense come alive here in the second half, and this sort of game you're gonna look at which Sam darnold slinging at the end of the first half and a two minute drill. The opening drive coming out here in the second half. We you can say any off season, despite the fact that there's been a long year, despite the fact that this been a disappointing year, we have all our quarterback we have our quarterback, and these are the sort of little victories, you're searching for his agenda. And I know it's not going to solve the six game losing streak. It's not gonna solve the fact that Todd Bowles for a good portion of this year today horrific Java coach in the jets out. Here's one thing. I can tell you Donald could play this quarterback is going to be. Good. Lamar Jackson has been impressive. I don't know if his body is going to hold up, but he's talented. Josh Allen is talented may feel my favorite of all of them. Rosen has Billie Donald has building. It's going to be cool. Good quarterback class. I don't think there's any doubt said the Bowmore Maury is up next on a foul is up Laurie. What's up double J? Hey maury. What's happening, brother? Interesting. Whiskies available. It's Machado wants to Bogota money. Do we go to Lewinsky? And Daniel Murphy, what are you take? I would not go near to its key Maury. I mean, he's. Here's the problem or he hasn't played baseball on about what a year and a half two years. We're not talking about church whiskey who is in the prime of his career with the Colorado Rockies. I mean this version of Troy tool, whiskey, I would not go near. I'd rather see the Yankees Maury take your guy like Berea and pair him with Daniel Murphy because you're Maria he can pick it at shortstop and defense ain't going to be an issue. And I was I'm listening to a couple of things that they should Miller the Yanks talking, which would be interesting to get pack, but I'm gonna I'm Scott left. But it'd be good to have him. In the bulk again, I'd be cool with that. Listen, you're looking at Andrew Miller as the guy's not gonna throw nearly as much as he did for Cleveland, not as much as he did when he was a Yankee back in two thousand fifteen but if you tell me though, is a part of a bullpen with Chapman whip which green. I think it's a good signing. And you always question with certain guys can they handle? The marketplace. That's why I was very supportive of the hat move. And I was supportive of the familiar move. You do not have any doubts. The hat and familiar can handle New York. Hap- showed you last year. He can familiar even other be some blips on the radar. He had some great years as a met. So. That's always take into account. If you Brian Cashman and Brodie van wagon. Does this specific player have the mental makeup to handle the bright lights in New York? But the Brooklyn Zach next on a foul what's up, Zac? Hey, Don, thanks for taking my call. I talk about the Medicare talking to McDaniel Murphy for the Yankees. I want him back and the Mets. I mean, I'm not sure about this Alonzo. I hope is going to be good. But I'm not sure, and I like the band, but he hasn't really proven anything. He may not turn out to be a much. So I think you know, I'd love to get harbor. But I know I know we're. More likely to get to get the kind of thing to do to bring him. Take a flyer. Earthy first base. Laverty really hit. The problem. The minute. You brought in Robinson canal. I think it basically ruled you out of any sort of. Play for Daniel Murphy. Keno now at second base. The Mets are committed to senior Peter Alonzo could do a I as they should you had McNeil you have Frazier. And at this point in time, we haven't made Rosario so I dunno Murphy's a fit for the Mets. Keno you'd say, oh, you could always sang bass you want Peter Lonzo planet. I you still have Todd Frazier on this team Mets the outfield that. Mets catcher. Mets need to go prioritize bringing another infielder. Let's head to Manhattan. Alex is up next on the fan. What's up, Alex? How you doing? Scheduled to find sometimes. But I don't know. Sometimes I hear you. Sometimes I don't like what their normal schedule and Alex moving and shaking a lot during the holiday season with people taking time off. Normally you can find me Sunday into Monday two to six AM Thursday into Friday doing the overnight Saturday to Sunday doing the overnight and in a variety of other days mixed in from time to time, but I can tell you Alex next week. I will not be doing the overnight. I'm doing Monday with Carl banks I'm doing Monday overnight Sunday into Monday, I'm working overnight. But then Monday would call banks at night and then Tuesday through Friday, I'm in for the big guy will be mean, Chris more mean Eddie Coleman for francesa afternoons next week. Oh, yeah. I wanna give my opinion the Yankees have a football question. If I may with the Anky van I'm Yankee fan. What they think about catching third base looking at that man and looking at how many errors they commit and how many game winning the item big Hobo? They have they above almost everybody in the Yankee fan while complaining we want up way vision. Listen Sanchez is going to be here for a long period of time as long as his head is screwed on straight. Now. Look, I'll be the first to admit, Alex, Gary Sanchez had a very disappointing year. In fact, it was a deplorable season. Gary Sanchez is too good to be hitting one seventy one eighty that cannot happen. But amount of Yankee fans that are willing to give up on a guy that in two thousand seventeen. Offensive cancer. Baseball's absurd come on like I m I have a. Question about the rule over time that. Big Jim get to have the ball one time. I let down or safety. Correct. Yes. So what happens if I feel and you all the time and kick a field goal. The other people get extra time to get the ball or game over. That's a good question. Now. Alex, the likelihood of a team having a ten minute drive kicking a field goal is basically impossible. But if indeed that happened and time runs out scam over. So it's you know. A situation you'll have to worry about because I don't think we're gonna have a team kickoff is going to have a ten minute scoring drive. But you're noticing with the ten minute overtime. How many instances we actually wonder is this game? Honestly gonna end in a tie that happens. More and more with the rules being the way that they are the new Canaan Bruce Johnson, what's up? JJ great show. I appreciate that. Bruce, very now. What's happening? I like to touch on the giants quarterback situation and just getting your opinion. I I don't know. What what can we do in this situation? We're in. I don't know that there's somebody there for us McGrath. I don't know that can last another two years to all these awesome offensive weapons that we have that. We'd really easy to use over the next two or three years. It's a very good question. This quarterback class not as good as last year's. I'll be the first to tell you. It's not as good. Is it possible? You could find a player. Yeah. We don't know yet about Justin Herber. I'm assuming Haskins that Ohio State is gonna come out. I think he'll be a first round talent. How the giants perceived do quarterback how they perceive true lock will Greer lot of variables. I don't think there's a quarterback is good. As a Mayfield or Donald on the veteran side of things. The giants committed to Eli manning for another year. Other giants interested in a guy like teddy Bridgewater or maybe Joe flacco, we'll have to wait and see what is the gut? Tell me right now at this point in time. I'm going to make a wager. I'm gonna say you manage back starting week wanted two thousand nine hundred for the giants, and yeah, I can't believe I'm saying six fifty five..

Here was this is all van wagon and talking about the impact of Jeff wilpon. Who is there? He has flown in for it. I think he was really crucial in helping the canot Diaz trade get completed and I.
"brodie van" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"I I al- I always get a little bit nervous, though BUSTER when people try to draw lines. They grew up a Yankee fan, I grew up in Syracuse, New York, I so clearly remember when Peyton Manning Indianapolis calls he's gonna sound with the dolphins because he has a home in Florida. Oh, please stop with that nonsense. First of all he's twenty nine years old. I think you get over that you know, that we gooey love for your team that you grew up. I mean, maybe he does. Like the spoken fondly of them. But now, it's a business. You're twenty nine year old somebody offers you six years at twenty five million dollars a year in the eighties on off you five years at twenty is his love for the he's going to bring them to New York. So I think the want him he probably has an affection for them. But I I don't look at it while he's definitely going to sign with them. 'cause he grew up in Syracuse, New York is he gonna keep in that. That Sosa makes sense when you're in adult, and this is a multimillion dollar decision and a longtime Yankee might be best example that you remember when CCC bath he was a free agent all hurt he loves California. But in the end, the Yankees offered him sixty one million dollars more than any other team. And despite his reservations about New York he signed with the Yankees because that's when you're a elite free agent. Most of the time you're gonna take the biggest dollars last one for you the Mets, of course, Brodie van wagon in the new general manager longtime agents, I I don't know what the Mets are going to do this winter. But I have to believe that as the wilpon bring him into that job that they are going. Empower him to do something significant because he's had the press conference. He talked about contending in two thousand nineteen. You can't do all that knowing the pressure that brody's under and not allowed to do something major. What do you think I don't allow them? But that doesn't mean they're gonna open up the purse-strings, you know, to get Manny Machado or price Harper. You know, they're still the wilpon is still the Mets some thirty five million dollars a year prohibits them from doing a lot of things in a non cap sport the medicine, so you're a cat team. So there there's just so much maneuverability. I think if he's going to do something really super duper significant it might be trading a Syndergaard and getting a package back in may, maybe getting a free agent pitcher back, and that could be considered significant the one thing, and I said this on my radio show yesterday. Buster the one thing that they can't do. Let's do something big, you know, to show the fans that you know, it's different here. Don't know. Listen, you make your team the way you think your team is going to need to be to win. Don't do things as optic move for the fans and be convinced. Wow. It's different here that that would be counterproductive. They've done the past. They should never have signed says. But if they did that for the fans, they listen to talk radio they read the newspapers that's a dumb way to do business at Brodie van wagon and things of big move will help the Mets win a pennant then they should allow him to do it. But you don't do it just to like satiate the crying masses. I think that's the wrong way to run a team. Yeah. And I think the Mets among the thirty teams in baseball. Listen more to you know, dopes like myself more than any other team. That's for sure. Michael. Thanks, Mike life. Not that you. I appreciate it. Have a good holiday. Scott. Lauber covers the Philadelphia Phillies for the Philadelphia Inquirer. And Scott, it feels like the Phillies are at the center of the baseball universe right now. Can you give us an update? Yeah.

They are sort of at the center they have all this payroll flexibility by design because they pointed to this offseason for for a long time..

"Here's Lance meadow. Down more. Toy with is. We take you up till the top of the hour. Thanks so much for spending part of your Wednesday evening with us. We've hit it all National Football League giants and the jets Sam darnold dealing with a sprained foot we'll get into more of that a little bit later on. And what that means for the jets at a short term against the Buffalo Bills as well. As for the remainder of the season. The giants will start the second half of their season Monday night against the San Francisco forty Niners. And then of course, tackling hot stove baseball the Yankees and the Mets have some big decisions ahead in terms of what they wanna do this off season. We tackled the Yankees and how Bryce Harper should not be on their radar not for that type of money, especially if you're gonna move a guy from his strength in the outfield to first base let the young guys develop targets starting pitching. And then there's of course, the New York Mets who have new general manager Brodie van wagon who is a former agent, and he's making the transition from representing players to negotiating with players from the opposite side of the table. And one of his interesting comments. Since he's taken over his general manager as he is down at the general manager meetings would not rule out. Tim tebow perhaps being on the opening day roster for the New York Mets. Now, let's give you some context here. Interestingly who do you think represented Tim tebow? As he made the transition to baseball, Brodie van wagon. Yes. He also represents Jacob degrom is who we were discussing at the tail end of last hour. It's gonna make for a very interesting transition when he will now have to hammer out new contracts with some of these players or perhaps trade them when he previously represented them. But the reason why I bring that up. It's easy for Brody van wagon into say that Tim tebow could have an opportunity to be on the opening day roster when you know that he was invested in Tim tebow making the transition to baseball. So I don't know how much substance to put into that statement and put behind it. But I will say this whether he has a relationship with Tim tebow or not Tim tebow should not be on the Mets opening day roster, and that's strictly based on production. Okay. This is not a who, you know type of game. This is about what have you done for me lately? And whether or not you're going to put. That to the ball produce and give them that's an opportunity to win. And I don't see how Tim tebow. Who's that? Occasion. Given his strikeout ratio. Which is in the complete opposite direction of where you want it to be and yes, he's hits for some power here or there, but he's not a consistent guy. That's going to get on base. His strikeouts are extremely high. If he shows some flashes in spring training and deserves an opportunity to move up the ladder in the minors. Then so be it. But this is not a guy that's been above double A, thus far see have to take that into consideration. And now you're experimenting at toying with the idea of bringing them up to the major leagues I was all for if the Mets wanted to bring up Tim tebow during September call ups when the rosters expand. I have no problem giving Tim tebow and opportunity. That's when you evaluate the roster. Mathematically, you're out of it. Okay. You wanna give an opportunity some players to see what they could do on the highest level. That's fine. Because at the end of the day, he's not taking away. He's not sacrificing roster spots from other players. I am not for him at the beginning of a season. When you have meaningful baseball for him to be taking a spot away from another player that has by far more experience and a better track record of actually getting on base. That's. I'm not for and when van wagon and throws out that statement once again in the back of your mind for those of you who understood the context, you realize, okay. This is a guy talking about his former client. So it's not a stunner for him to say that. Now, we got to see whether or not come spring training, whether or not that was just a Pat on the back for a former client or does he actually believe and have faith and Tim tebow? The baseball player, and Tim tebow has a lot more to prove before you wanna start crowning him as a guy that deserves a spot on the opening day roster. So a real head scratcher type of statement from bandwagoning. He also would not rule out perhaps then parting ways with some of their starting pitchers if they feel they could get a good deal. Jacob degrom. You're talking about a guy that's in contention to win the Cy Young award. And he's the one that came out on the record wagon when he was just playing the agent role. He was not GM and said if the Mets have known. Intention of signing term. They might as well trade him. Well, is he going to be a man that's gonna live up to his words or does. He now realize that Jacob degrom is worth investing. And now the good news is the Mets have him under their control through two thousand twenty. So it's not necessarily a decision that has to be made right now. But like anything else you want to be ahead of the curve, and you want to be able to hammer out a deal before. Perhaps there starts to be arbitration or a market to develop and speaking of arbitration, this is what is fascinating to me of an agent making the transition to general manager when you have to now all of a sudden, go to arbitration with some of the players that you had represented or players that you just knew in passing through having conversations. My assumption is he's going to have to remove himself from that facet of the negotiation process will have somebody else within the Mets front office. And I have a few guys who have previous general manager experience that will be able to take care of that. So perhaps there's an easy solution. But like anything else, you're the general manager? Do you want to be handing off all of these assignments to others or do you want to be the face of the franchise who is out there setting the tone and the vision for the organization, and I'm assuming that van wagon and wants to be more the latter than the former. So the dynamics of how that plays out to me is something that is extremely intriguing to watch. Because now all of a sudden, you're on the opposite side, and I was just doing some research to see how many other individuals have put themselves in this position, very rare that you see an agent all of a sudden and make the transition general manager, perhaps you see the agent give up the agency make the transition to perhaps working in the front office. But you don't see the immediate jumped to general manager. Well, here we skipped a few steps we went right to general manager. Dave Stewart is one guy that comes to mind that name should ring. A lot of bills for those of you passionately following baseball over the last few decades guy that helped three different teams win a World Series. Twice it MVP of the ANC s. With the Oakland A's. The dodgers the Bluejays in he was in agent. And then he became the general manager for the Arizona Diamondbacks short period in which he worked under his former manager Tony LaRussa, but made the transition the differences that with Dave Stewart and this the huge difference. Dave Stewart at served as an assistant general manager before he became an agent and also was a pitching coach. So he had been around baseball teams. He understood the dynamics of what it takes the interact with players making tough decisions. That's why it's much different than what van wagon has to do with has to deal with excuse me right now. Another guy that comes to mind who is pretty much on an even playing field with van wagon is what we're seeing in the NBA. The lakers. Magic Johnson who is now running everything from a basketball operations standpoint. Brought in former agent rob Pelinka who is now serving as the general manager. He's also a former Michigan basketball player. So it's interesting how we're seeing it on two different professional sports levels baseball and NBA agents immediately making the transition to general manager, I'm not questioning their knowledge of the game. I'm not questioning their knowledge of the negotiation process. I'm talking about when you've got to make a difficult decision. You've had pre established relationship with players. Can you get the job done? That's where we separate the men from the boys with respect to that eight hundred three to one zero seven eight hundred three to one zero seven ten what do you think about an agent taking over general manager duties for a team that is? Very much in a transitional period where they lost yo NSS is for an indefinite amount of time. Who's there arguably their best hitter? And there's some uncertainty in terms of the future of this pitching staff, and whether or not they're going to be a mess. Uniforms, moving forward an opportunity for you to weigh in here. Lance better with you here on the sports zone. Let's reopen up the phone lines. We check in with Ray in Waterbury Ray, what's happening. Welcome to the program here on seven ten WR. How you doing? I'm doing very well. What's on your mind? I think he's got to make an early splash. You know, it's not gonna be Harper Machado. Bringing in. Well, at least Andrew Miller somebody like that. He's got a strike early to get the momentum going, and and and get the positivity from the fans calling you know what I mean? Well, I think Andrew Miller would be a great move. And I need to cut you off. I'll let you continue. Right Miller is the perfect candidate that I think the Mets should go after because bullpen help needs to be one of the top priorities. It was an absolute mess this past season. You bring in a guy like Andrew Miller who's pitched on the big stage has been with a number of teams in the place that to me would be a worthy investment. I agree with you one hundred percent. And then after that, he's gotta get a impact fat. Yeah. You know? I don't know. That's gonna be maybe maybe even give a shot the mccutchen. If you can get them for a year or two, you know, who is a journeyman veteran proved guy who's with the Yankees. But that's not a guy that I think is going to be a long term solution. I think if you're the Mets not only do you want a guy that's gonna fill in for cesspit is Ray. But I think you also want a guy that you could build the lineup around. So I think you could kill. Two birds with one stone. If you do find that bad, I think that's a priority right behind relief help in a closer situation. No doubt about it. You're right last say they need that big bat, and they don't need much. They need a big bet. Six the bullpen catcher. And I think they can contend which starting pitching, you know, I agree with you. Right. And I think a very valid point at appreciate the phone call. Thanks so much for weighing in here on the sports zone. The makeup of this team has pieces. There's no doubt about it. And then if you look at the makeup of the NFL east, I think that's also an encouraging aspect for the Mets. I don't see anybody really running away with things similar to what I was talking about with respect to the NFC east earlier in the program Braves. Great season still young though, the Phillies extremely young and the nationals. Let's see what happens with the nationals. This. Also, you take Bryce Harper's ban out of the equation. I love their pitching with what they have in terms of max Scherzer, but Strasbourg question Mark, they even have issues that they're going to have to address a nobody in the NFL east. You could sell me on the fact this is a juggernaut had they're going to be setting the tone and really running away with. Division for years to come. So that's why if you're the Mets you say to yourself. Hey, if we can build off some of these young pieces if we can address the areas of concern find the bat to fill in for cesspit is end become a key aspect to the lineup. Revamp that bullpen, you know, you got your aces in the starting rotation and starting pitching can take you far and keep you competitive. I don't think it's an overwhelming task for van wagon. But I also don't think he should feel. Yeah. If I keep this team as is. And we don't spend money. We'll be okay. Just hanging around with the group. No, you may be able to hang around with them for a month or two and then come the all star break all of a sudden reality starts to set in and you get a repeat of two thousand eighteen all over again.

"Back. Again, the moral different reason this opportunity. Brodie van Wyk makes the opportunity to get an opportunity, and he blew it. Woah, may just be late for one week arrested for it. You got to be a jerk. Yeah. Like when they pull you over you. Yeah. Yeah. But they're not trying to arrest. You completely blow by the officer. Look, it's nothing and you almost hit another one you're going to you're going to. Because you could have heard. The famous words. No. He probably definitely said I'll be late for practice. It'd be pray job the hints. I know guys and say, hey, do you know who I am? He probably well, you probably put his NFL players card out put a jersey from the back, and he probably opened up the player's guy. Like, hey, guys looking like. Okay, fine, you well, this kind of leads quickly to the deadline this afternoon. Yeah. We already have one trade that went down. Can I update you go Marius Thomas who has been traded to the Texans lost will fuller Maria's Thomas? We knew was on the trading block. Jets need a little bit of help Thomas not the same as well. Speed. But maybe the jets were looking for a little wide receiver help. I don't think Maria's Thomas was going to be the right fit there. I don't know what the return was yet. Thomas is the oldest bottom line is should be stellar since afternoon and by sellers, it's Libya Vernon it's ginormous Jenkins. It's even I would investigate sterling Shepard. If somebody's looking because the Mark Cooper got the first round. But if it has to be one if one has to go you always side with a pass rusher. You always keep the pass rush. You're always led to the corner go because you can find those guys you can find somebody that can that can get there. They kinda work hand in hand. I don't let alleviate Vernon walk before janoris Jenkins. If I had to pick one or two to up saying he go find Olivier Vernon has been very effective since he's been back yesterday. Yesterday, Sunday, he was all up in Kirk cousins face Kirk cousins, Alex Smith, pardon me, Alex Smith's face. I mean, he was being very disrupted. Let alone the fumble that he scooped up and ran back from north engineers hasn't had a great sees really. He's giving up some big plays. In typical. What happens is the last person? We see is the is the cornerback in all the time is not as fun. It looks like sometimes maybe some safeties were responsible for being in the middle. But you know, if you got to move one, I call a Kansas City, and I say, hey, man, give me this money. All right. There's another two thirty today. There's the Mets who are. Introducing their new general manager Brodie van wagon, and we will have Rhody what's up. We will have that. But I laugh at everything. Oh. We'll have the news conference a two thirty live out there. Yeah. We're gonna talk to Edie for a couple of nights to listen. There's a lot of questions there's a ton of questions going with Brody van wagon, but willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for a lotteries. I'm willing to wait and sort of see how this is going to go. First of all, I think he's got a crush the press conference today because he's an agent. He's obviously, very polished. And I think he's going to be a good face for this team in terms of, you know, always saying the right thing, maybe a lot of these PR little flare ups that the Mets always seem to have. Maybe those kind of go away when you have someone who is a little bit more savvy in that area. And I think he's going to be also willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Because if you were going to keep them an IOT twat that means you're keeping Rick. Oh for scouting, Omar Mnaya for scout. Or excuse me were for scouting for scouting Ricco is going to be a little more the day to day if you're working within that framework. Maybe that's what you need is a Brodie van wagon. And maybe you need a contract guy. And maybe you need not the scouting so much. But evaluating the talent that's already in. The market and seeing who's worth what would he have given that contract to Jay, Bruce? What is he going to do with Jacob degrom? What's he gonna do with? Syndergaard. You raise a great point. Because would he have given that today? Bruce him understand in the marketing being age and gives him an unfair advantage because he understands what guys are getting. He has all the analytics what when it comes to that. But for me where it gets dicey is Bill early on the first four years into the game. You got a four year contract, right? Yeah. For four years being in a game. He still has some fresh relationships that you can get a little dicey. Man. You gotta have some some. Are we supposed to be in the circle tree? You my aging. I'm used to being in the circuitry. Trust tree. I yo, bro. You know, some of my dirty secrets, and I know some of yours, I mean agents out of fog is he's the guy that gets you to the hotel ruled he's a guy that gets everything on his credit cards. So it can't be seen on on yours. Here's a question. Do you think guys tell their agents if they're doing PD's, I think so somebody Cusack alleged of being involved in helping their well, they did that with the Nelson. Do they create the fake website for Chris? I mean, milky Bush Malki Malki. You have to have somebody that you can confide in. If that's what you're gonna do. I mean. Agents kind of all you dirty secrets. But on the flip side. You also know when you're gonna you're telling me, they might know how many how much you wanna play that could be formation. That's really sets. Don't you? Also, maybe the guy's been a well-respected guy. Everyone seems to have a nice thing to say about him his reputation the business appears to be sterling at least from the outside. Don't you feel like he could smooth over some of those questions that I know he can smooth over the public persona type thing he's going to look good in front of a microphone and he's going to look comfortable in front of the camera. That's fine. And I give them credit because that's something that they have needed. Sandy would have his misstep from here. And there was a smart guy. Bottom line here for me is I wonder what what's the plane when you're hiring a head coach or general manager or a manager. Those guys have been preparing themselves for this day, and for this opportunity for years and years and years, and they have the people in mind, they've already talked to the people about who they wanna bring with them if they ever get that opportunity. They know everything they want to do. Do the Mets have of a small analytics department you've got that Mnaya to deal with whether or not they're staying or a couple of them are staying are what like I just don't like the way that this is going to get structure because there's so much that has to be put into place getting getting going moving forward here. I think that I'm bloom would have been the better way to go. Just not just safer the better way to go. Because this is a guy that understands how all of this works. I think that if you're looking at somebody like van wagon and saying, he's a brilliant negotiator. And that's your number one thing. And number two is she's gonna be comfortable in front of the camera. Those are not the two things at the top of my list. But here's the coach he's working for you know, mom and pop, you know, agency on the car. He's one of the top agents there. I mean, they're analytics department. I bet is probably bigger than the Mets wanna know why they have to they need analytics to try to make their clients. Look good. They understand. I think he's he has to be well versed in that language. I don't think he's the guy who was parachuting in like, I don't think that he's you know, he's not some is oracle. Like, I don't think that's that that should be the comparison here. I think that he's speaks the language, and I think that he's got clients on every single team in baseball, which means he is working with every single front office. You don't think he could identify a good Agar two out of all of those offices to say, hey, if you wanna come over with me, I don't I just don't think he's going to be bringing that many guys because you already have how many cooks in the kitchen. Do you want here? Exactly already got a lot of voices if the monnaie Twas staying along with and we all know, Fred, and Jeff wilpon are also if not the biggest voice in the room. I mean, they'll they are in the biggest voice, but that's what concerns me right too, many cooks in the kitchen how much power does he really? Have and what's going to be his specific job because we talk about the Maniaci and all their roles today. Already had there in place they've been there long enough. So they're going to be able to you know. Is trying to be part of the good old boys club. And really like how are they gonna treat him and how how much how power where he'd be by the wilpon because to me it's still seems to me like the willpower general manager. I don't know. How how empowered time bloom was going to be listen, I think anybody that was taking the job that was a genuine concern. And that's why we saw how many people didn't want to interview for it. So it's it's all on the table until two o'clock. We've got Jamal Adams a two in his weekly spot as many calls we get before. And he sees ready to jump in. And we'll have the press conference at two thirty will carry it all for here with Brody van wagon. She got the letter arrest. You got the giants at the deadline and whether or not he will be the bro cya. The Mets operating in bro. Motion order, bro ass. This is this is going to get old quick keep doing it.

"That's going to be valid amazing. Is that could you imagine that they brought Clayton in here? And they gave much to say, you know, one hundred fifty million over five years thirty million a year and half way through the first season every time he goes out there. Aaron Boone is like ooh same bolt on the top of the dugout snaps to get him off the field. Yeah. I mean, I just I just I don't see that happening here. I just it doesn't make any sense to me. Yeah. Let's go to Calvin in Westchester, what's up Calvin? Hey, guys. Get to talk to you again, sir. As a Mets fan. I don't even say frustrated anymore. It's redundant sell. Today's another day that will live in infamy for the Mets organization onto the wilpon sell. So I tell my two girls we go to one game a year. So I when it's beautiful is happy, and I just enjoy and that's the life of a Mets fan. What are you guys? So you're you're you're you're actually one of these Matt bands who's obviously upset with the selection of Brodie van wagon in them wagon wagon as yes. Yes. Yeah. He's disgusted. Right. But I mean, I don't like to hire we talked we detailed every single bit of it that doesn't make sense and potential problems. Right. Yeah. But you can't tell me just like every other thing that we sit here and talk about that. You know, exactly how it's gonna work out. I mean, so I try chance right? Bad as negative as you could possibly be on this higher. But I can't have that fatalistic opinion the point that they're going to be out of it in July and I'll go to one game. And it's another day of I can't do that the guy cham- full beningo on this yet. Right. So the point being is that we can all say whimsically about this hiring that we don't know if this is the right thing. But now that they've decided on hiring him. Let's see what he can do before we actually crush him. Let's just wait to see what this team looks like coming out of spring training. And this is one of those things that if he ends up being a great GM people end up tweet NAS us. See you guys run. That's great. I'd love to be wrong. I want this to be the most revolutionary higher in the history of baseball. Everybody tries to copy it. This is awesome, Brodie van wagon and gets a statue outside of city field. I hope all of that atmosphere. No, no, no. I hope all. Gets the statue. I all right Seaver gets a statue. Piazza gets the next one. And then Brodie van wagon gets entire wing because he won four World Series of the Mets. I hope that happens. Our job though is to evaluate it right now. And we appointed out many things that we don't like about the higher and a lot of land mines that he's going to have to navigate through because of what he used to do. And I would like to hope and the like the thing that one of those mines that he will navigate initially will be convincing the wilpon to give Jacob degrom a contract extension because he deserves it. And if he doesn't right away if that isn't the first order of business and something happens at the snap of a finger. Then it's never going to happen. Then Jacob degrom. And it doesn't happen. I'm hiring Morrison saying trade me to hell outta here. Because I cannot go to work for a guy who knows everything intimately about me away from the field as a player what my expectations are how I go about my business because that would not be fair to negotiate in that room of the guy who knew me that well, but we're in GO on the fan and.

"What up DOE? Hello, pleasure to be on my favorite radio show in particular this week pleasure to be with the great Maggie, Greg. I'm always. Well, there you go. Thanks, ed. Appreciate it last couple minutes coming out. I think to be fair. Tony tacoma. I remember will be it sounds like Brodie van wagon is going to be the guy as the Mets GM is that accurate. I Stephen three hours after me. Oh. Wow. Wow. That was aggressive. Yes. Tony these things. I apologize down on Twitter. The important thing is that Brody van wagon and. They're very very strong leader to get this job the reading, and I'm not saying he's an ex Met's GM is because they're deal is not done. Okay. That's that. Hi, bloom is not out. He hasn't been totally doubt as of like two or three months ago. He's not considered out of this. But it's clearly going in one direction at this point. They're not on equal standing candidates. I I believe that buying a snag guy Brody, then wagon, and we'll be the next Mets general manager. Why how did he differentiate himself? I mean, obviously, he's a he's an agent that's different. But why is he getting this job, Andy? Well. I would say that why. No that they were looking for somebody who had some Dagan who could tell them what was currently not working with his organization and as an agent, I think he was uniquely positioned to do that in his interview because. He has been somewhat adversarial position with with them every other team eighteen years as an agent, so he could come in here. And in there in the interview, and rather than okay, I got to try to get this job. Going to say. Here's what you need to. I've been telling you this for years when we were talking about the crop. Doc, and I bet that appeal to a Jeff wilpon and in terms of somebody who would speak openly and honestly with them. And I I know that he's someone who is charismatic a good talker. Very smart ambitious guy. So I just think interview. Well, hi, interviewed very very well. Also, I heard these are too impressive candidate. And that's final round. Doug Melvin was an impressive candidate. Despite what ages and we might have heard other corners that he was very much not just an old school guy. Melvin. So they ended up with a good field and those guys who've been fine. But I think that then wagon, and ultimately is striking them as the most inspired choice. Forty four years old. He could sign on and really be a leader of a franchise for for a long time to come. Another thing is that he's very respected already among rival GM who've been dealing with them as an agent, they don't like agents by by trade. They're not program to like agents. And and the calls I made around the league about this for weeks. Almost every other executive has been complimentary and van wagon. And in fact, when it was like twelve or fifteen people at one point in the next first round field one prominent general manager who does not work for the Mets had said Brody because he's just the smartest one. So he's been an adversary to the organization in the past. Will he now become adversary to Syndergaard into ground because he was saying that you know, trade him or pay him? So does they may be one of the first decisions that he has to make when he if he if he gets the job how does that play out? That's the question. It's a great question. And even if you wanted to one asking me questions right now, I'd be interested in how you as a player would feel about your man. I want my money you said after get my money. You told me how much I should get. So let's start with what you said I could should get when you were telling me in having those phone calls about how bad the Mets are why they won't pay me. Yeah. That's a good point. So it depends. The presents like what six or seven minutes, some of them might have different feelings about it. I feel like you feel I think that the affair way to feel for sure all I can say is I've checked with many players that could I don't have my finger on the pulse of every met CA client. But I understand you've got a great relationship with Jacob degrom. And that probably wouldn't be messed up by the and that way, see a works. I could get into the weeds on this. But unlike say, Scott Boris where he's Doug guy CAA puts eighteen around each player and Brody being like top guy. Most of the players are dealing directly with Brody. They're dealing with one of the guys below him on that team. So the argument that would make to their clients is that you can still work with the same team of guys if an agency obviously, the does anything. Okay, they put a whole bunch of people around your t-boz wanted to see guys, and this is so I. Broadcasting career all his books and all kinds of stuff so Brody Brody out of that equation. And they feel like they can still absorb these players. And that's the pitch that they'll make two players like the ground. Syndergaard Todd Frazier cetera. Now, they can be players can choose to buy that they can say Brody was my guy. So I'm going. That would be the right, of course, anymore. TV last one for me. And he does this mean the Mnaya twat will remain intact. We'll see I think is very much a part of this organization going forward. I take the John Rico engaged p Ricciardi. Make. In general turnover in this organization. It'd be natural energy after this news is that. Any final one for me. And it's about bloom who looks like are false signs are pointing that he could get passed over for this job. What was the Mark against him? I what what was was. It is age thirty five they feel like he was too young. Was it some inexperience although Brodie van wagon and has never run a team either. What do you think was the biggest checkmark against him? My big takeaway from the very interview with bloom when I was able to gather was that there wasn't there weren't that many marks against him. He did really well. And he when they did their diligence around the league like I've had to do as a reporter. He turns up as a guy who's not an analytics guy per the stereotype, but very well rounded field player development, working with actual human beings all the time and doing well with it. And they why he made it. I I would say the thirty five year old number two with Tampa Bay to still be in it as he is of this exact moment, that's that's overcoming some odds to become think about that. You're thirty five you're not even the leader of the Tampa Bay rays, and you're going to be the leader of the New York Mets daddy's leak. No matter how impressive you are. And I would argue and then not just saying this because there seems to be picking them. I was saying this all along. What are you, Dan, wagon and had significantly more high level? How big stage baseball experience than someone who works at Tampa Bay race you dealing with all the GM's dealing with high profile clients. So I think with bloom it might just be a matter of you overcame a lot of concerns about a candidacy, but perhaps one guy is going to surpass any Martinos thoughts brought him wagon this guy. Anthony, Tacoma can go to hell hasn't. He's just doing his job is Chris Carlin crediting. So Chris Carlin Rica? I am the problem. Thank you Landry.

"brodie van" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Favorite store ShopRite. I'll be there tomorrow. You know, we can open up with the Mets now with Doug Melvin being added a picture as the potential GM, and it's down to bloom and van wagon as far as it's going to be. But I I have to watch the entire Gabe. But just the fishy. I about this over and over again last night to me was as bad just the first quarter alone was as bad an officiated football game as maybe I have ever seen. And that's saying a lot. Officials are inept there in. What did you like the most? Did you like the two penalties awfully ever? Really did anything? Reason even throwing a flag there or how about the field goal that was wiped away on the head used the long snapper penalty. Nowhere was no no way or anywhere close to that. Yeah. Yeah. David and trip in the running back. Yeah. Come on. And the dolphins an extra four points with that. Of course, you'll go wiped away into shuts down by Kenyan Drake a player to later, but my favorite for comic relief because it was irrelevant with when the half. This is unbelievable. The Houston Texans. The Shawn Watson is kneeling the football on the ground. He said I Don let's go to halftime. And they call it illegal formation and force the teams. Uh-huh. How do you call a legal formation on a kneel down at the end of that Joe bomb? You gotta be kidding. He'll bucks sound angrier than when he was offended by Randy moss, fake mooning. He was so ticked off. Come on. Yeah. It was bad. The league has got a problem here. I mean, all these things that they want to address these problems. They have a major problem with the officiating in this week. I'm the I I am sick and tired of watching these guys. Like, I say make calls. They should make don't make calls. They should make. They have too much influence on a football game. What they did it like you said on the opening kickoff. I mean, come on. Always my climb with this nonsense. At the end of the half is even. It was legal formation on Neil doubt. There is a play in. You're definitely checked out at this point is the latter part of The Fourth Way the fourth quarter. There's a clear penalty on a long pass forget to Andre. Well, here's what happens if they feel flag and official says there were three penalties on that plane. Three. They called they called the team all on the same team defensive holding illegal contact at a pass interference. He called free legal contact it'd well, basically the same thing I think they were going for the jugular at that point, Mike some slight differences, but they call three penalties are one play. I tell you Joe. I haven't seen that one. Never. I've never seen three on one play. I have to say that. But you know, what it was a good night because the Miami Dolphins. Yeah. I'm upset because I was really thinking about taking Houston in a up on tonight. So stupid me. Yeah. But but how about the Texans? I mean, they started out. Oh and three ninety one five in a row Watson had a big Nino. I love watching. He had a big night five touchdown passes. All of a sudden, they have turned it around majorly and a dolphins after three, you know, have gone the other way, I think you could see what the dolphins that they weren't that good as it was happening. Right. It looks like Ryan tannehill may be back next week. But what was data jets next is against the jets and the jet certainly one that's got Amen. But what's damaging for the Texans is the fear for will fuller? It looks like he may. Right. And that's a serious blow. I don't blame the officials for this one. Because I think they got the call right but deandre Hopkins made one of the great catches you'll ever see because many times. Like the ball underneath his leg except there were offsetting penalties for the play never happened. And I don't think the calls were wrong by any stretch. I'm just saying it was a great play that doesn't count which was unfortunate. But was a nice nice win by the Texans. JJ watt. Feels back on. A second a tackle for a loss in the first two minutes of the game. Yeah. I found myself as a fan staring at him on every like watching JJ back. He's back. I grew and that makes a big difference here and there in a great spot right now to win that division. Not the greatest division in the world. You know what though they're five and three they can win ten games. That's despite getting off to the stock. Oh, yeah. No doubt. So good for them. As far as the Mets GM. Search is concerned. I tried. I tried to do something that you probably glad I wasn't able to do. I tried to compare these final two guys to some presidential election in American history. And I can't think of one because why would you do that? Because I find that funny. Sometimes an interesting to try to think of pair van wagon, and boom a presidential right to people where we really have no idea what they're gonna do what they're capable of. And really we don't know much about that just about everybody. No. Because usually those who run have a resume like they were the governor. What they say they're gonna do. Okay. It's not about saying what you're gonna do is about knowing something of the what do we know as far as being a GM is concerned about a sports agent. What the hell do we know? We don't know. Sometimes when you're a governor or your Senator you get an idea about the person, I have no that's the problem with this. Because I've been getting tweets who do you endorse like this isn't election who who do you want? What do you do? I don't know. I have no idea what kind of general manager Brodie van wagon is going to be and I don't have any idea what type of general manager and blooms going to be because he's been in assistant, basically working up the ladder in Tampa. What the fifteen I will say this morning. I have thought about this situation. No more. I'm kind of warming up to it. They what they didn't get. Well, here's the deal. They didn't give Melvin the job. And that would be the typical move the Mets would make correct dog melting would be the guy. Yup. All right. He's done it before you beat a typical play. And you're not doing that. Now. Now, I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing because we still going to have Rickles still going to be there, and is still going to be there. Those guys you're going to be there. We understand that. These guys are still looking at least. That's what what you hear Jeff wilpon is going to be on. Well, of course. But I don't know I would van wagon or boom would either. But I would say more than wagon and with duties, Bloomberg do it. And that's why maybe I'm actually favoring him. Yeah. I I gotta tell you, bro. Yeah. That he might actually say, hey, look. Jeff, you know, what you gotta go out and spend we gotta spend some money here. This team is not that far away. All right. Now's the time. We got these young pitches, and you also get the garage deal done. Well, that's happening. But we got these pictures, and we have to go out and get us selves some big plays here. Let's go maybe he could convince them in dove made that point yesterday that his experience. It's actually a really good thought did trimmers beat a little bit does. Very good. Very stellar. Goldie through training. Are you? Bob dole. Nice work. I started. Brodie van Wagoner because the truth is all I know about him is that he ticked me off a year ago when he talked about a work stoppage. And he's the one who made news during the all star break about Jacob degrom wanting a contract extension, which I'd have a problem with right stuff. Right. That's our reading about him one. Interesting factoid is that his father-in-law was Neil Armstrong. The astronauts, his father is Neil Armstrong astronaut. Yeah. The first guy to walk in a move. That is correct. So that was interesting. But here's the thing where and again, I'm not fully endorsing anybody. Because I don't really know with these two guys, we don't know. But one of the things I liked about van and wagon. And why I am believe it or not leaning towards him with you over Hiram bloom is his creativity in negotiating with general managers, but more specifically his pitch on cesspit as to the mat? And I'll tell you what. Now, I know the suspect his contract the second one hasn't worked. We all get that it had to work because here's a play. But one of the pitches he made to the Mets was explaining why. Forget the player that we know that. But why from ticket sales perspective from a merchandise perspective from a business standpoint, it made sense to sign you and what I love about that is that exact same pitch. He made from a business standpoint, right? Is the exact same pitch? He should make about. Maybe you're anybody. Anybody? Anybody that's an elite player, I completely agree. And so I don't know if he's going to do that. But he has a track record in getting creative in trying to convince owners and general managers. This is why you should spend your money a certain way, and in a way, that's the same completely trying to convince the owner this is why you've got to put the money and dove made this point to a degree. This is why you've got to spend on a guy like Manny Machado. I don't know of Hiram blooms doing that. Maybe he is enough about no van wagon. Clearly is good. What he does. He's a sports agent a guy early forties. Maybe early forties. Yeah. Yeah. I like that too. And so that aspect of it intrigues me. Now can he run an organization? I know can he scout? I don't know is he ultimately make the final decisions probably not because Jeff wilpon. Well, and maybe all Norman I- Wilson's. He still there. But that aspect of and wagon does intrigue me that whole creative. Let's look at the business. Convince order to spend a ton of money. Joe he convinced the Mariners to pay Ravi canot. I'm telling you, bro. I after is sitting and thinking about it yesterday. I'm all in on van Wagoner all in all going all the way, I'm leaning Dom in. Bring them in what's out of the box thinking about a wilpon. I which is very surprising. But I'm all in on on on this guy. Let's see what you can do not. Why not well, certainly different. And you know, we saw it with the warriors. It's obviously worked Bob Myers left being a sports agent to run that team we've seen it with Pelinka in Los Angeles. So we've seen it before. But it is still a very outside the box thing. And here's the weird thing. Let's say bloom gets the job. Hiram bloom gets the job. Hiram bloom is sitting there at his press conference and somebody asks a very fair question. Hey, what's your priority? What's the number one thing you wanna do? Now. If I was the GM my priority would be before anything else. I wanna lockup. Jacob degrom. Right. Right. So Hiram blooms. First order of business is going to be to call the guy he defeated for the job to begin negotiating like literally. That's what would happen gloom. We're pick up day. I said bandwagon. Yeah. The guy he just agreeing this election. That's a great point. A beach in this. But let's talk tank, let's talk you'd have to think from a human level that's going to be a little difficult. So that aspect is kinda straight. And then what happens to his clients if his priority? And I assume is priority is going to be hey, I know Jake, I want Jake Jake wants to be a met. Let's get this thing done. Now, his first full call is going to be to whoever's replacing him as his agent say. Same. What is it? What's the name of the agency? C a associate could leave. Would have to go wherever you want. He could do that. If you wanted you could. Yeah. So there's a lot of weird aspects to all of this. Ultimately, here's what I fear. Whether it's bloom, or it's van wagon. I fear ownership. Well, we're always gonna feed at new owners. So we were or their approach changes. It's not necessarily just new owners or their approach changes. Because and I don't say this with any facts other than the feeling that both of us have we get a sense from Nick standpoint that Dolan has changed as far as how hands on. He's been correct. That doesn't make them a great owner necessarily. But I mean, they seem to be doing it the right way. Now, it feels that what? But, but maybe that's the same thing happening with van wagon because to me either one of these guys is like we said we said a couple of minutes ago is a departure from what we would normally think the Mets would bring here. But that doesn't mean it's departure from the odor. Being hated true. I understand that scares me. But it does. But I also feel that if they are actually going out of the box here a little bit maybe are a little more open to listening to what this guy may say. Maybe maybe I'm just surprised and let me say this now with that said, hopefully, he this guy whether it's bandwagon in a blue. Loom does not turn out to be just a yes, man. Yeah. We don't know that either a coffee boy, go get Jack coffee. Right. I just know. And it's different. But I look at two general managers that took over my sports teams in the last six seven years one of them. I think has been good. The other one was a disaster and one when as a team you root for and that's John Edrich at another which marks and why bring those two guys up here. Two guys that really didn't have experiences GM's. They were both assistance marks a former player. Assistant coach worked in a really good organization is more of a business guy again successful organization with Seattle..
Agent says New York Mets should trade Jacob deGrom if not interested in long-term deal
"The course of the program but don't fret we will be back with you mahayana with wherewithal all week as a matter of fact at one pm eastern for the man the legend himself so we are just kicking the week off on a high note we didn't get into baseball much today but we will fact that they're all star break it's not gonna stop us from talking about it because you gotta love the game it's america's pastime homerun derby tonight tomorrow he got the game over at nationals park one of the big names which is being thrown about out in an ticipant of the july thirty first trade deadline and he's also a guy you'll see on the field that nationals park tomorrow jacob degrom in the new york mets who's had his good season in terms of starting pitching is any in baseball this year is certainly gonna make a good run at the cy young award in the nfl probably has every right to gripe about not getting joe's into start the all star game even though they gave it a max scherzer but he's the hometown guy there in dc but grammas having phenomenal phenomenal season and you know his name has been tied into trade talks as to whether the mets who are looking to probably rebuild to a certain degree again and that's probably one of their more marketable assets that they get a lot in return for and maybe inject some youth and samatha lettuces them into a team which can certainly use it given the injuries in the age and the underperforming that they've had so far this year brodie van wagon who is the asian for jacob degrom spoke to ken rosenthal fox sports and the athletes and had this to say we have discussed jacobs future with the mets at length jacob is expressed interest in exploring a term partnership that would keep him in a mets uniform for years to come if the mets don't share the same interest we believe their best course of action is to seriously consider trade opportunities now the initia the inertia of current situation could complicate jacobs relationship with the club and creates an atmosphere of in decision bottom line is and i don't know if this is necessarily coming from the ground himself this is just agent speak more than anything else and by the way brodie van wagon c n a or ca they have done contracts with the mets brodie van wagon represents yowen assessments so they've been able to broker deals with him in the past and the mets have been a little reluctant to sign jacob degrom he's right about that but jacob degrom is a starting pitcher who is thirty years of age remember because he didn't come up until he was twenty six and even though is extremely talented in one of the best pitchers in the game the mets probably look at it from the standpoint of all right he's arbitration eligible for a couple more years so he's not like he's a free agent at the end of this season is still have under control for two more seasons after this then he becomes a free agent after two thousand twenty mets may figure you know what right now is we're trying to figure out which direction we're going to go as a franchise at least if we have them under our control we'd rather go to arbitration and give them a hefty raise for year as opposed to maybe signed him to a long term contract at the end of the day the mets are not trading jacob degrom okay everything that i've heard and everything that has been told to me is that they have cooled on moving either the grammar noah syndergaard they're shifting their focus maybe down to other pitchers like stephen matt sack wheeler to maybe move on from but the other thing that i counted with is if you also then in your next breath say that you think you can contend again in two thousand and nineteen with some better luck better health than why would you look to trade these guys you should be building around your starting pitching because starting pitching has actually been something that the mets have been pretty good at this year i e except for jason vargas who was a disaster as a free agent signing and still is as apparently no guarantee to get a spot back in.
