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
Which teams most need to make a move by Wednesday afternoon?
"We are now heading into July thirtieth baseball's trade deadline coming up Wednesday afternoon the Mets are continuing to make moves Sunday they acquire Marcus Stroman when they were buyers Monday a bit of a sale as Jason Vargas goes from New York to the Phillies the Mets receiving minor league catcher in the deal as a result Phillies looking to boost their starting rotation decisions they'll need to be made by Wednesday afternoon ESPN insider Jeff passive you've got a lot of relief pitchers out there you've got a lot of infielders out their backup guys who may be able to help the big question is with the big names are the teams that are selling right now going to move off of these prices that have scared away teams that need starting pitchers and consequently are those teams that are looking at their rosters in August and September and October and seeing what they look like happy with where they are right now because where they are now on July thirty first two chief is where they're gonna be then in October when the games really count that's right so everyone wants prospects everyone wants to protect prospects alright let's start with us starting pitching the first domino falls with Marcus Stroman let's go to the best candidates are to be moved and where things stand as of now we start with Madison Bumgarner he's a free check free agent at the end of the year and he's on a team Gee that is eighteen in five this month and you know what I don't think I'll be sitting here two days before the trade deadline saying that Madison Bumgarner is going to be staying with the San Francisco Giants it's looking more and more the like that's going to be the case unless they're totally blown away I keep him what about Trevor bar while the trade him he's arbitration guy next year I he is and that's one of the reasons why blue gene he is going to make up for it eighteen to twenty million dollars next year the Indians are not a big market team they have a finite amount of pay roll and they understand Trevor Bauer is going to be leaving in free agency when he's done if you leverage him now and send him to a team that needs a pitcher for the playoffs because there's so few starting pitchers out there the unions can go out and get say a camerawork from Cincinnati and trade Bauer these for

It's a strange trade market for starting pitchers in MLB
"Say a strange. <hes> trade market for starting pitchers which is really for this summer is at the center of the trade market. I was looking at you know sort of broad strokes. There are a couple of potential free agents who are available in Trade Zach Wheeler the mets but he's coming off the injured list to start on Friday. Jason Vargas of the mets Madison Bumgarner is a tweet it out yesterday. These like the image on on Mardi Mais flies family picture in back to the future. He's disappeared slowly. We right from the trade market. I'm I know that the giants loss yesterday but I think in less the giants are swept by San Diego over the weekend I think Bumgarner staves with the giants and they keep him for the rest of the urine they ride out how while they're playing now. Because Far Han Zaidi I either had a baseball OPS first year there. It'd be so difficult for him to continue to try to do business in that town in that organization if he pulled up the roots of this great run that they've been on without <hes> you know giving him a chance has to play it out and so bumgarner disappearing but they're a bunch of starting pitchers being talked about who are under teen control beyond this your Trevor Bauer Stroman Noah Syndergaard Robbie Ray the diamondbacks Mike Minor. Enter the Rangers Matthew Voided the Tigers and there are fewer buyers in there are those type of pitchers. The Astros are going to get a starting pitcher Yankees Braves phillies Oakland twins. Perhaps maybe the brewers although I wonder her if if they would necessarily be a big buyer so it's it's a really kind of a strange pitching market because you would assume that moves you're going to be made but it really comes down to okay which of the sellers blue jays the Indians maybe blink a little bit and come off. They're really high demands to try to bridge the gap with some of the buyers what you read on where some of these guys might land yeah. That's I think your take on the teams. Every eighteen you listed seems likely to at least want to acquire a starter. They want necessarily all do so obviously but I think every one of the has an actual knee and his position in a position in the standings word probably makes sense to do so. I wanted to just jump back to Bumgarner for one second. I agree with you. I date that the public reaction to them trading bumgarner would be very poor right now. The starting seem is not actually that good though they've been outscored they unless they look been outscored on the season. It's really unlikely that they're gonNA make the playoffs Joe Sheehan wrote about this in his newsletter his email newsletter yesterday to talk about how various sites fan graphs in baseball perspectives of the giants playoff playoff odds is extremely low.

Well, neither. Yeah. Self driving cars all these things. No, no. None of what you are. Yeah, fast. Try a Mets pitcher, Jason Vargas had to be restrained after going after Newsday writer Tim Healy in the aftermath of a five three brutal loss to the cubs. The incident began when Mickey Callaway had some choice words for Healy the sportswriter after Calloway's bullpen management came into question Calloway, implored, a public relations official to quote, get this 'em out of the clubhouse, and also after telling Healy earlier, don't be a smart ass Vargas. Indefensible skipper engaged in a staredown with the beat writer then verbally threatened to quote knock you the F out now. The Mets organization has apologized to Healy, and they will have internal conversations about this with everybody involved, but should MLB hand out fines or suspensions for this type of behavior. Well, actually. Had this down because the Knicks had an incident where they banned a guy believes from the daily news from the RJ, Barrett press conference because they don't like their coverage. This is a little different. This is just they didn't like the way you're listening to Caspian Los saying the next refine fifty K today by the NBA for doing that as they should. Yeah. I think the Mets versus the Mets Fred wilpon apparently personally reached out to that reporter and apologized. Mickey Callaway, I'm sure it's going to have to apologize to the guy the next time he sees them. I think the Mets of handled it about writing. So baseball doesn't need to, but you can't ban you can't be banning people from the clubhouse, because you don't like their coverage and beyond that it's a stupid way to handle the problem because now you lose control of the narrative everything threaten writers. I mean, which is similar. Edged it right. Well, Vargas knock you the F. You can't have that this M F or out of the clubhouse. I mean to me, those are fines and or suspension flying the guy, I think when he tells Mickey Callaway told him to throw the guy out of the clubhouse because he thought it was being a smart ass. And by the way, I heard the entire press conference all the guy was doing was questioning the way making. Ted was on the way out. I'll see you tomorrow, which Mickey Callaway took as like don't be a jerk like, okay it was a tough thing. Like, you know, you don't be a like a wise apple. I'll see you tomorrow. Right. That's it was a little much and then Vargas, because his manager is, you know, yelling at the guy whatever gets out there. This is what happens when your team is terrified. Right. And that's what the Mets are. Totally disorganized got dudes play like that left. Fielders. A second base. You hired an agent to be your general manager run truly basically to yeah. Rhody van wagon. Yeah. I mean, that's, that's a terrible name yet is you can't take team service like that. So you can find artists or something. I think the Mets got out ahead of this in ways. The Knicks totally nicked, it up just by you just flat out banned. Do not have a player threatening you find. Okay. Sports. Writer. Yeah. But I think generally speaking, because the Mets handled it, well, and they'll maybe disciplined, Vargas, internally or something. Baseball probably won't have to by the way on the van wagon thing baseball organizations are enormous and to have somebody who is completely inexp-. It's not like the NBA NBA organizations are not baseball, or you've got scouts got minor league system. You've got I mean, you've got people all over the place to have somebody. That's never had run an organization take. Takeover was a huge mistake for Fred wilpon and the, the cows of come home to roost. And so have the chickens. Yes. Little known fact, Steve took a shot before. So sometimes they get expression check. Plus just don't pick a guy's name. Sounds just got off the polo field. Brodie van wagon God, that's awful.

"What's here on this Tuesday morning stage, a after dark, John jastremski right here on the fed, so. Yankees rained out Monday. They should have been rained out at two thirty three clock in the afternoon. You find out at six thirty. Okay. So now we'll be a day-night doubleheader. It'll be Zack Wheeler against Masahiro Tanaka in game lawn. I like what make you Cowan Metzer doing starting Zack Wheeler in game on why because you banking on the fact that he's going to go deep in the ball game that's been his MO basically all year. He's had some spotty starts. But at least in those spotty stores he's giving you life, you're going to need Langton day-night doubleheader in game two will be changed. Paxton taken on Jason Vargas. Then we know Jason Vargas is surging right now for the New York Mets pitching with three and a half Ray. The numbers for Vargas against the New York Yankees, or downright ugly. He's like Owen seven with, like a seven or seven and a half year as so I put my money on a split of the first two games. I think that's what we will see be interesting to see how they shake. Out the lineup style with a day-night doubleheader. But it'll be a day-night doubleheader before the Yankees take on Chicago White Sox before the Mets will host the Saint Louis cardinals for four for the Yankees. You know, the top the priorities list for Brian Cashman. Now it is injury to make our on adding a tough lights starting pitcher is just an absolute must for the state no other way around it. They need themselves than elite level starter. Question is, who is going to be up to me at the that answer? It's one medicine Bumgarner. And I don't Bumgarner got a whole lot of attention for his little incident when next month and let me just say this. I'm a Bumgarner guy. I love the coach factory that he brings to the table. I love the fact that bomb going, there has this kind of chip on his shoulder. That's I think a good thing for him. I think he feeds off of it. He was absolutely positively wrong and chairman of max Muzzy that said he could be wrong. But I like it at the same time. Because I want that soda. Guy's not going to back down to anybody pitching for me the some about it, sweetie said this to us when we were doing the threat today on us and why. How about maximum Madison Bumgarner. Maybe some time late in August the AKIs play the dodgers and really think down the line. What about a World Series match up with the Yankees and the dodgers wouldn't that be nice. But said to Woodside could Charlie's up next on a foul up, Charlie. Hey JJ watt. What a treat day you're on the show. I mean, again, it's really a nice treat for JJ gets a low evens out Charlie because that was supposed to work Wednesday night. We got booted from our ten to, to show Wednesday that because it's going to be airing game seven of the Stanley Cup finals. So of course, the Yankees rain this game out. We gotta fill ten to two shifts. They sound the jail arm. And I'm ready to rock and roll, and Charlie very thankful was on the air tonight because we got a great NBA finals game to react to. Oh, yes. Certainly I, I wanted to get to the NBA Carr Lowrey. What's just? Absolutely. Yes, ridiculous. I mean in, like ninety seconds left he went through. Back then he throws a throw back. Hold violation all the way to the back core. I mean what was he thinking? If I if I was if I was a player, I wanna live live and die with the best player and quiet Leonard should be taking that last shot and lorry that was awful Shami naming hit the rent. I mean, that was if you watch the replay though, Charlie and just had a chance to watch the replay of that final shot. It did get deflected Draymond green. It was unbelievable close out defense by one of the better defenders in the league in order to get there in order to get a hand on the ball. So give Draymond green a ton of credit for being able to block that shot that said that is not the final possession. You one of that game. And I know Kawais basically saying you know there were two guys on me this no in the world. I'm going to take that shot. I want a better look. I want a better shot and ultimately Charlie would have players specialists quite Leonard gotta be, honestly, I want the ball in his hands in some way. Shape before I want him taking that shot. I agree with you. Oh, oh, yeah, absolutely. And change topics. We'll go to this, this on the. He's not talking about the game. I'm actually I'm actually like kinda take this, like this rano thing I mean, Huck combed, all if they don't forget, I saw I watched the news.

"Sells everything four out. Save for Janssen, tough luck loss for Vargas who gave up just the one run over seven innings. Let me say three losses. Nice thing about Jason Vargas. He was at fifty pitches after two innings and you're thinking I mean, we Gon yo for four or five hundred tonight and he actually got himself through seven and pitched better as the game went on. Do you know that since we brought Harris Allen, and who's the Jason Vargas, whisper? We brought him in sat him down. And we yelled I did for the most part yelled at Harris for having Jason Vargas is back and Arison, just celebrate Tori. Cream pie. It'll be okay. He's had six starts since then in his ERA is in the twos. His ER as better than wheelers and syndergaards now. Yeah. So good for him. So I'm not quite ready to apologize to him yet. Nobles elementary green pop. Well last I'm pretty close gave them a good chance to win it. They could just get hit one of those, the six starts the two point four zero, but he's got a one three record across that period. Because the Mets don't score form. Apparently he's wrong. That's right. Exactly. And the Mets have one and three record to show for their efforts out in LA this week, a free losses. Two of them could have gone our way. We put ourselves on a really good position. We showed them that, you know, we got a pretty good team. And we can go toe to toe with them at one in three. Positively man. That's all you got balls. That'd be my aunt. Really tough when they're twenty games under five hundred and he's still saying the same stone the manager of the right if he's still here. Well, they're back to two hundred twenty seven and twenty nine road trip continues with three against the Diamondbacks Zak with are opposed by rookie John Duplantier making his first major league start tonight at nine forty three stupid games. We'll yeah. They don't see Grank in this series. Do they? I don't think they do. The time prospect for this. He's only pitched out of the bullpen so far this season. But yes, he is one of their top prospect, you've done Sunday was Merrill, Kelly. Is that his name? Yes. And I don't know who's pitching Saturday. So go win. All three. Sure. Sounds great. It's just win all the games that arrested a year go and do that. Yankees and the Red Sox for rained out in the Bronx, the push to August third of the day-night doubleheader Aaron Boone with Mike here on the fan though, first place team. They own the best record in baseball since the six and nine star long way to go. But we've put ourselves in position to go have a special season. And in considering what we've been through that. That's that's nice that we sit here where we are right now. There's nothing to say about the except that they've been terrific. There's nothing else to say. Okay. So we just move around. No, no. It's just. Yeah. Yeah. When things are going. Well, what do you say? Hey, they're doing a great job. Right. Pretty much the couple of things that people bring up just make me laugh about how guys getting healthy is going to be a problem. But it is interesting, though. It's interesting. Good players on the team players are going to be a scenario though. Giancarlo Stanton comes back, and he starts off poorly. You'll he's the one. I've been saying that for weeks. Now, he's the one guy that's going to have a ton of pressure on everything else, though. I mean. From the really Batanes Severino, all those guys. I mean it's Stanton but Stanton season had that cloud over it to begin with. It's just grown now that we haven't seen them. But I think he's the biggest I, I really believe that's the biggest one though it's the only one right. It's the only one and I think because Clint Frazier even though his defense is just the worst the stoneworks in baseball. Maybe other than that Dwight's with junior. But I think that the emergence of him and maybe not seeing as much of him when, in comes back, that could be the all of their end of it because, you know, here's a young guy you love everything about him. He's finally showing that he could stay healthy and hit. And now we're putting Stanton out there waving at sliders again. And we've got a problem. But that that's, that's the only the only issue and they're so damn good that I don't even know if it penetrates them, you know. All the injuries to the regulars in the members of the rotation. They've been relying heavily on their stacked bullpen. It's really hard to envision not here without how well chap. He's been how well Britain and auto vino. And Kane Lee have been and of course, still waiting on the return of Delon Batanes is from injuries slowly, but surely these pieces coming back Aaron Hicks returns to the lineup a few weeks now allows Brett guarded to go back to his customary left-field spot. They make quite a dynamic duo out there just a lot of balls that, you know, routinely. Get swallowed up and more help on the way it seems as you mentioned Stanton getting closer to baseball activities again the calf injury words. Yes, he does Aaron judge through two basis from the outfield yesterday up next cage swings he says he's got no pain right now with the oblique injury and Didi gregorius could be back as early as next week's road trip to Toronto in Cleveland, which is quite impressive, essentially seven months removed from Tommy, John surgery. He was supposed to play a rehab game with AAA Scranton last night that was rained out as well. So Yanks in Red Sox. Never three-game series. You've got hap- sale in tonight's opener. Pregame on the fan. Six twenty five Herman Rodriguez on Saturday, instead about the push shallow the pitching matchup for the Sunday night, or elsewhere, raise all of the twins fourteen to three Tampa within a half game of the Yanks atop the Charlie Morton, which watching I was watching this game last night. His slider. Ridiculous earned. Yeah. I mean and just watching it last night. Again, the twins are one of the best team in baseball right now record wise and you I actually forgot he was on the race. And just watching it last night like this team. And I it is a may, and they're playing in front of nobody the a loss for them yet. I'm not sure. Start of the year for that guy to because he was so he came over and a big trade when I was in Pittsburgh to the pirates and he got off to a miserable start. And he was just he was the joke. Like he was the Jason Vargas last year of that, that staff. And then he figured it out, and then people will make ROY halladay comparisons to them. And then, of course, he goes to Houston. And then turns into sickly a superstar, and I remember ended up in Tampa. I remember thinking why? Yeah. Right. And boy, it's been good for him now in twelve starting that same exact for your, that's an example, because everybody goes to Houston and gets better this guy, left Houston. And he's been is good. He's continued yet. Nationally. Couple of microbes stock is home runs sent the Purvis past pirates eleven five giants three Marlins. Won cardinals raise the Phillies five to three and an old friend send the Rockies the Diamondbacks in extra one pitch..

"Watching Jason Vargas on the, the postgame professorial look, he's got the glasses little, Jeff Goldblum and it's been pitching well of late Harris is saying they showed on TV. I saw the stat quickly got an era under three overs lasted I think it was a six starts as owing three time. Now somebody that taste ball because even when he doesn't give up runs he doesn't pitch deep, the only goes four or five innings. See you're not going to pick up a whole lot of wins when you're dependent on the bullpen to do all the dirty work, but tonight, Farkas brought it this is tied for the longest start. He said with the Mets. He went seven innings last week last season when not many were paying attention. But he went seven innings one run ball against a terrific offense tonight. Unfortunately, the Mets unable to find a way to score. And I put a lot on Vargas over weeks months, going back to last year. And I think it's fair, but right now he's pitching, okay? And I like the fact that he went seven innings to be honest with you. I think the Mets would ever trust him to go more than five because there starts where he's thrown. Well, let's take him out. He'll be at, like seventy pitches here out. We're putting Lugo get it I'd rather have Lugo on the mound the Vargas as well. But tonight with the bullpen being what it is after the blown game yesterday. They left Vargas run and to his credit. He ate up semitic. He got some things done. Again against the dodgers. And this dodgers lineup is loaded load. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Ben in New Haven is next on the fan bent, they Pete, how's it going? Listen. I wanted to talk to you about the Mets. What do I begin? No. That sounds like a good start the Tepe Cy, there's usually a good place to begin when talking about the meth the, this whole issue with Graham, I came on the side of they should have never offered in the contract, and he should have traded him. And here's the reason why you look at his age, thirty, you look at the fact that the Mets have holes everywhere, not you one piece of way not to they have holes everywhere. And he should've read stock the form system by trading. This guy by the time the form system, gets up and running by the time they get a decent team to make a different. This is going to be in his mid dirty jammed, but come on, Alonzo came up and as looked like a rookie of the year candidate Conforto as. Not great, but you have they don't have anything. Now, if you're gonna get a trade degrom, then obviously, you're not making the Conoco deal Dow, and have them in a better spot than where they are right now but you'd really be stepping back a couple of years when you don't necessarily have to do that. They do have enough pieces here is an average team you could've flipped him for blue chip players. All you have ready when I hear met cans excited about going to challenge for a playoff spot is beginning to you had to laugh. They have holes everywhere. They're not close and get mad at the managers and they're not going to win. Sure, I'm not trying to grind. I think it was. Right. Move then. And it's not now it'll be different conversation with Syndergaard. I'll tell you that. And if they fall out of it different conversation with Wheeler, those are the kind of guys, I would move to Graham to me, the way handled last year the respect level he has in that clubhouse the way pitched last year. And I don't worry about age with a pitcher as much as they do position players. You mentioned the fact he's thirty just Verlinden how he's still going strong. And degrom didn't have a ton of mileage on his army didn't pitch until he's a professional or very late in his career at Stetson and college. I, I think that contract will be fine. It's not going to be great because none of these contracts are, but you got to pay somebody and if I'm committed to anybody on the Mets Jacob degrom is the guy and even with him not pitching terribly well to begin this contract, I still have confidence that he'll figure it out. And he'll be good again. It'll be a lot better. And he's been so far, I'll deliver pitch like he did last year again. But, you know, less probably worth like forty plus million dollars. And you don't have to be at that level time. He's gotta be consistent. And that's what he's lacked this year. But I still I don't think that the Graham. Signing is what you should be looking at now. It's the canot trade with d s that's the absolute big one that was the real win. Now, move that the Mets made if you want to look back at something and say, hey, how different would it be the Mets hadn't made this move Mets gave up their future? They gave up Kalmyk a top prospect done is well, it could be a nice pitcher in the big leagues. And they took on a contract of Robertson Cano that's onerous and they're going to have them until he's forty one and it hasn't been good at thirty six and Edwin, as usually bring in your closer to be the last piece, he's been okay? But he hasn't been a leak. Lost two games that were tied. And then the game last night is just unacceptable. You absolutely cannot be blowing three run lead in the ninth inning. And consider yourself an elite closer and was elite last year. But that's something that just can't happen. I don't care if it was the fourth game at a five that you've pitched in cannot let that kind of league, especially now without giving getting a single out and you start looking at that, that's the one that you focus on not to gram grams. Not gonna change the fortunes of this franchise. The move that has the capability of doing that in a negative way is the canot de as trade. Jim in Richmond hill is next on a fan, Jim. Morning peak speak with you. I forgot about the mercury Mets brought back memories of, of course. You know, their AAA team before they moved who's the Las Vegas fifty one named after area fifty one. But looking at the upcoming scheduled for the Mets planning a besides the Yankees are playing all teams at a five hundred or under up next now going to zone of the weekend. Just play the dodgers. They had a stretch gets under five hundred teams earlier. And they'll, they'll get the Rockies and the giants coming up in the Rockies are actually over five hundred. The giants are the only under five hundred team. They have until the all star break. Right. Of course, I've got two games against the Yankees coming up. But that game Wednesday night collapse. I've been watching baseball since nineteen sixty seven in that one of the worst collapses, I've ever seen really. Now you've seen that. Cruising as soon as they gave up the two home runs the as I would have gotten the voltage up at least game of the two homers. I still wasn't worried as I gotta get done. I really do Diaz has kind of track record people talk like oh, you gotta take him out who you going to. Use the pen. At some second base with his foot HOGAN could've changed a little bit there. They would at least have one out to work with but he couldn't find second base with sweat there. That was a bad, bad loss. I guess it was terrible and it's made worse by fact they didn't come back a win tonight. Nobody expected them to they hung in. They got a good start Vargas. That's why he thought they wouldn't win tonight. Right. Because it's Vargas out. He pitched well he gave them a chance to win and we're able to take advantage of it now, yesterday's things even more. And now this is a team that's been prone to some mongo's extracts. Mickey Callaway, they've spiraled before now they're point better baseball overall the last couple of weeks. And I say, I see that coming, but I do have questions when they start losing games. How easily are they going to pull themselves out of it this last year? They've never did this year when they hit their absolute dear when they were swept in Miami. They did respond and credit to them for that, man. That homestand they had some magic elixir. You talk about all the extra terrestrial stuff it, they it spiritual things happen. When Raja Davis. Dany auntie, Berea Carlos Gomez and Tomas Nido are coming through with your monster hits. And that's what happened on that home homestand. The six one homestand against Washington, Detroit, and they had some odd ducts, coming through in a big way not the guys that you expect a lot that went right there. And that's what's energizing for fan base. Right. Carlos gomez. Have some fun with it. You love it. But then a week later, it's I and they're blowing leads to dodgers. They're wasted a good start for Jason Vargas. And now they're going into Arizona. And you're trying to sort it together. Here. And it's just it's the same kind of trend that they just seem like a five hundred team these bounce around up and down. And they haven't been able to put it together for a year and a half. Mickey callaway. Sorry about. Hey, once we get sick once we get in sync. Once we get sick. Oh, god. They've never been sick. Once been in sync under Kelly. I don't know if that's a manager's fault or not. In the last year and a half. They've had stretches. The starting pitching is good stretches where the bullpen good stretches where the offense is good. And it's never at the same time. It is always is always one thing that is holding this team back. How about Jacob degrom run here? So degrom is gonna get Zach Ranki on Saturday. He just got Kershaw the other day and he got another ace before he had faced Kershaw. He went up against was it sherzer. And that's, that's quite the run here, you get Grinky. You get Kershaw, and before that Strasburger sherzer who sherzer, so three straight. I get some of the top pitchers of baseball. Well, yeah. Maybe three hall of famers lineup there. Right. It's a little early on Grandy but he's been around for a while now is put up some numbers and you got to look at all the starting pitchers with different I because none of them are going to approach three hundred wins or anything like that. But Kershaw the lock and you figured sherzer is at this point to that's, that's quite the run for for Jake there. It's got a Tommy in Brooklyn next eight Tommy. Hey, what's up, buddy? So you know what I'm gonna tell you one thing, it's not only Calloway soul, which I don't like Halloway. It's all on voting shoulders motive does understand he boarded familiar which they have last year. Marie them, you know, just like the Dickie train one wanted to fight young got rid of the next year. The next year he collapsed Soltan pitcher ever again. You know it's not it's not. I don't nobody ever wants to fate the ground that he's either Jim the problem is the familiar trade the jet. Larry. Does he has the casino? It's all on brody's shoulders. If all doesn't pan out if the ninety take wildcard whatever signed that the Mets that one year two years. I don't know. Nobody knows how many years can be with them. But, you know after this, nobody's gonna want him the GM, and that's just not going to be eight Geneva. So here's the put everything in this way. I'll tell you. What Brody is very close with Jeff wilpon and Brody will have. The opportunity. Let's say the Mets are under five hundred at the all star break and they decided to sell I'll guarantee a bro to go. Get the chance to not only execute the sell off, but then he'll be in charge of the rebuild, and get himself an extra four or five years. It'll be like, what AJ prowler did San Diego where he went for? It was aggressive gave up a lot of good prospects including trae Turner, and the was terrible. They had no defense and they're outfielder Matt camp just Upton, and we'll Myers out there and then he blew it up. And now it took five years, but the Padres look better but that'll be the path for Brody. I think he'll get a chance to try to build it back up. I mean you're right. But realistically, we're not gonna have a cesspool coming in coming in on the second half and taking us at a World Series thinking, playoffs that's already gone. That's not going to happen. There's no it's gonna take us. So if they're going to be fellas, they're going to be selling. You know what? It's, it's, it's the right move next year we're going to be, we're not gonna have look ours. On the payroll. We're not gonna have threes. All we're gonna have a lot of money available to spend, if they can somehow get rid of Melia again, if, if they can be, you know, selling off, if they give it a meal, you, they're gonna get rid of, you know, I don't know a few other Pam. You're asking the spent a lot of money and build it through free agency, and it's not it's not the ideal way to go about it either. And as we've seen in the past the Mets dive into free agency. They're, they're taking the middle group. What, what's the best signing? The Mets of add the last two years, I think about the off seasons Mets of the last two seasons, and they have struck out on every off season move, they've made for two years. That's why they find themselves in this situation. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Mets thought some NBA finals thoughts coming up and then JJ at two an. Mccarthy on the fan. Attention. The Virginia citizens defense league is selling the alarm, America's freedoms are under attack.

"The fan. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six and the New York Mets need start is to go deeper into games. This is an encouraging sign that you got vintage back to form. Jacob degrom as well as Jason Vargas pitched for Jason void standards. And I understand those standards are like basically getting a deep plus or minus on test in school like the happy of past. But I mean, you're not particularly happy about the fact you got to see her a C minus or for that matter getting your credit. But the problem you're gonna run into these Vargas starts, what's best case scenario you get in five innings one or two runs. So those Vargas starts of putting that much more of a burden on your bullpen other stores. The Mets have had within this rotation have not gone deep enough in the game. And that includes villa synagogue. That will continue to be more more of a problem with these bullpen looking the way it is looked you lose a guy. I know we've been awful for the first month. Familiar guy you count on to be in your eighth inning. Now, either Lugo workers element is going to be in a position where they're nets setup role. So what does that mean, you're not gonna have the oh to piggyback off of one? You have a store not go deep enough in the games. Yes. The Mets need all these guys in that bullpen the as who to the less couple nights not on the job because element Lugo unanimous. They got to perform. But it would also be nice to see, you know, more six and seven and eight performances, it'd be nice place to start. Let's let it off we head to Whitestone Stevie. He's gonna start a self here on the foul. It's up Stevie. JJ? Thank you for taking my call, my pushy. Steve what do you got for spell? Checking. A man I was over at field like usual Madonna hall Mets fan on. God bless you. Steve you must have been freezing your rear end off, man. It was a miserable night for baseball. So God bless you. Yup. And it was raining. It was nasty. But you know, I was just like every other game. And you know, I I don't understand. I know it's like an unwritten rule. I I mean, I don't understand why we have a closure in when we don't need to knock same situation. I know what a home team and trying to preserve the win. But I mean, I mean you see what happens when we in non situation non same situation. I just don't think the guys man and one of the things I wanted to tell you before you hang up on jayjay, please. I was saying I was sitting right behind the guy. And this guy Winker is a moral. Okay. When he was coming in after you made the catch, and he was towards and all the fans, I was lucky enough to have a couple of words from I ended up calling him a bozo. And he looked at me. And he, you know, he gets choice words for me. But he heard me, and I was going to Rb because boy he actually straight bozo. Well, let's see wrong there Stevie now he's talented kid. There's no getting around that. I mean, he had a home run the other day that gave the Cincinnati Reds win. He made a sliding catch the game here on Wednesday night. He's talented. He's a little bit too much takes far as good, sir. I mean, the idea of wave unlike who the hell you Reggie Miller. Okay. When you get to the point that you're Reggie Miller. You're an athlete of that performance. You want to have that swagger that provide gerrad ahead. Yeah. I thought that was very tough to take. I disagree with you. When it comes to bring it when I do. And when the ads is your best reliever unit tie game in the ninth inning. I don't to hear the logic. All well coaches can pitch thinning do John. I'm sorry. You cannot make tonight's game about Mickey Callaway. His with tonight's game boils down to the mid offense, which has been very good all year. Had no answer for diesel funny. Who is terrific the colts neck kid, then you combine that with the fact that it went for the second time three games giving up the bum that your storyline next narrative not manager but said to suffering Jordan, he joins us. He's on a foul. It's up showing. Hey, what's up JJ? Join how you doing pal. Got the color of a former actually raise a good point that guy waving the other night. I think game one when he gets home run off yet. Who's this guy picky is, you know? The Cincinnati Reds five hundred baseball team one play. But you have no right waving to the crowd after totally agree chew. And act. Like you've been there before you know, what I mean like there's certain guys that you just have to take it. You know what I mean? Like if Bryce Harper is going to act that way, it's going to annoy you it's going to bother you. But you know, what you're going to say this is one of the premier players in baseball. It's accepted behavior when you're nobody. And you're going to have these provide on his way about you. Yes. It's not going to sit. Well, you're gonna yell about it. I'm going to yell about. And we're gonna have a conversation about it. And the story exactly you want to pitch go his way tomorrow. But that's another story. My main point, you know, what are you exactly what you were saying before the Mets need to start doing it tonight. But they Syndergaard step up tomorrow, you know, taking six seven innings and held the limit. This bullpens get sick out. And you know, what you and it's certainly long overdue for Noah Syndergaard to go out and perform and look Noah Syndergaard wants to have an opinion on everything Noah Syndergaard wants to look like he bought ten didn't Williamsburg with the ponytail. You've got to perform, bro. And it's story. He has not performed he has not pitched like a frontline starting pitcher. He wants to act like he's frontline starting pitcher. But the reality the situation is days to Mitch need him to be the dominant, Noah Syndergaard. And for this first month of the year. It's been all talk, no action. And I know that fans would give me a hard time. Join because I went on Saturday night. And I bought her them. I came on this radio station at one in the morning, and I hated them. And I'm kind of sick and tired of his act them kinda sick and tired of is nonsense, and that's not going to sit. Well with some fence. That's fine. But I'm gonna tell like it is he's not performing. And I appreciate that. You was. Fan can acknowledge the fact that the almighty door has not pitched like the, quote, unquote superhero and don't get me wrong. He's one of my favorite players on the team. I love one nine eleven he's doing well. The time for to live up to the store. Name. I'm rip it up. I'm not going to get support him. It's really time for him to step up and start doing some blame into that. You're listening to me. I'll take care of that. You don't gotta worry. He pitches poorly. Again, you don't want to miss my monologue at two o'clock in the morning. You don't wanna miss me on the three and the Mets post game five o'clock. And if you don't like it he could block me on Twitter, Instagram, go right ahead. It'd be a loser move my opinion. That'd be losing of his vice Noah, Syndergaard chump and pitch as I said Saturday into Sunday Guam job. Gimme seven innings of one room baseball against the Cincinnati Reds. You know, Noah Syndergaard, should they take a page out of Jacob two grams playbook seat the crime can't sit? I can't get enough. Jacob to Guam the way he handled situations. After the game. You know, never gonna make excuses when he pitches poorly was ten o'clock at night shouldn't have been. He could have said, you know, kind of threw off my routine was he say after the game. I think are now mechanical seems like Syndergaard. They're always trying to give you the excuse. Oh, yeah. Stripped world. Oh, it's this. It's that. No excuses. By the way, if you've watched the reds the first three games of the series. They can't hit. They hit a lick. They should be a lineup that is tailor made for you to go and shut down. I hate the fact that the game is on a twelve o'clock in the afternoon. I do like the lead in for my show on it's the why show on the part of. That's great. I mean, hopefully, more eyeballs TV sets. That's what we want to see noon is just it's too early for me tour, I knew them like on the zombie. Starbucks. I gotta get my routine. One o'clock be fine on the afternoon game. I like the afternoon twelve is much much. Let said to futsi Dave joins us on the fan. What's up? Hey, what's going on JJ links? They gonna call David Umbro good. Yeah. Just got back from that making as well. Just met game not a fame tough night at the medicine an island or faint. But I really wanna get your take on the islanders to me the two the two biggest things the series so far obviously for one is the late game defensive taps. I mean game one you cow quota buck with turnover and then tonight, obviously with the winter. But I mean, my real thing that I'm seeing is that there. Trying to be too cute in offenses. Not know puck on net. You think it's just, you know, for the fact that we don't have as many skilled players on this team and a bunch of really just good or okay players, or it's just I mean, just leading the in breaking down. I think it's both. I don't think they're an elite level offensive team by any means they've played these grinded out style. A hockey the entire year. And it's worked wonders for them. Berry shots and company had squeezed every last ounce out of the talent that they have. But if you watch the second period of this game the islanders had some golden opportunities on breakaways on finishes tool. One three on to. I mean, these days you gotta finish off. If you're going to win the Stanley Cup playoff game on the road. And you're right. The Leonard turnover was a killer. He's absolutely a fault. He's full forgiving up a couple of soft goals in third period. He's had a great year though. Dave. And I think the reality is situation for the island is is this even though the point at Carolina team that was slightly favored against the coordinator Vegas. There is not much discrepancy. They lost a couple of games. They easily could have won. And I think now reality kinda splashing them right in the face for realizing this is what they are. A hockey team. They've had a good year. They've done a wonderful job. But you've seen some of the wards since some of the shortcomings in this series on full display. Yeah. I can see that. I could see that. And I appreciate the call. Dave. You have a wonderful night, get home safe. And look there's nothing to be embarrassed about from an island standpoint Fotos, you stone of the would not only make the playoffs but would win a playoff series and sweep the Pittsburgh Penguins. You wouldn't believe me? And I thought they had a really good shot to win this series against Carolina. You know, you're not going up against team like the Washington Capitals with pedigree and they won the Stanley Cup a year ago. But it's amazing in these Stanley Cup playoff series any playoff series for that matter how things can kind of change in an instant..

"Into the season for all the Brodie van wagon did to improve the club. He came into the season with something that was just so clear in the number five starter Jason Vargas that it was a bad plan. And I've said this I said this for months over the winter. I mean time after time people would call and say about the Mets what else would you do? They were talking about other moves the Mets could make in different things that I kept saying they need to get more starting pitching. They need another starter. If your answer to who's the number five starter is Jason Vargas, then that's a bad plan. And if your answer if your starter number five starters, Jason Vargas, if your answer to who's the number six starter, who's the number seven starter is I'm not sure then or or supposed to be a Coriolis wall. Then that's a bad plan. That's. A flawed plan the Mets came into the season without enough pitching depth and right away. We're seeing that. Jason Vargas is simply not good enough. And they're going to try them out there again. And part of the problem for Vargas is becomes a spin cycle. A catch twenty two here is he does better when he pitches regularly. He does better he has the fo on regular rest and be out there and pitch regularly. That's better for his game. The problem is because the Mets are looking at his stuff and saying he stinks. They keep skipping starts and the more. They skip it starts the worst. He gets. So you have this this vicious cycle. That's just continue of a pitcher who stinks stuff who stays who does better though on regular rest and they're gonna keep skipping him. Because he's thinks then he's just going to keep getting worse and worse. So the and then they have a short hook with them, which I understand they're looking at him and going jeez walking people, and he's giving up base hits and stuff thinks so then they yank out of the game. Then that means if you can't even get out of the first inning that you're taxing the bullpen, and then the bullpens guys own problems and its own issues. But if you're gonna ask the bullpen. To be overworked, then that's gonna make it even worse. And then all the other starters have to almost be perfect because nobody can have a bad start because you know, that Vargas is going to have a bad start and get Yang's it. It's a flawed plan. And it'd be one thing if it was impossible to do something about it. If there were no players out there. Then you have to wait until some other team is willing to trade with you. The right now. There are options that are out there. Number one. From a starting pitching standpoint. There's Dallas Keiko. And the rumors are that while Dallas Keiko, of course, wanted more money more years and all this other stuff. Look, whether it's true or not the rumors are that his numbers are coming down. And that if if a team were to offer him, essentially the one year. What he would have gotten with the amount. He gave up. Call it about eighteen million bucks that that he'd signed and. At this point. If you're the Mets, I understand, you know, certain amount might bite bump you up over the salary cap threshold, and you might just not a salary cap the tax threshold, and you might have to pay tax a luxury tax. So what you're in New York suck it up and pay. And I just saw a story that bothers me that it's on the New York Post and suggesting it I understand the point of it. But Ken David off just wrote a story saying the creative Mets trade that would turn Jason Vargas into Dallas Tyco and Ken David offices in the near post just posted this evening. And he's talking about how the Mets could basically cut money by attaching a pretty high end decent prospect to Jason Vargas or Todd Frazier. Make those salaries go away. So then they can turn that saved money. The eight nine million bucks. Turn it into being able to afford Dallas, Dallas kaikal and to that that offends me. I understand their teams who've done this before and they're citing he's citing when the Zona Diamondbacks and their GM Dave Stewart did this few years ago, and may trade, you know, what? That's part of what got Dave Stewart fired making that sort of trade giving away prospects. So you can get rid of a bed fridge in contracts that you've previously signed it's a sunk cost, you already did it already spent that money the Mets already dumped they already got rid of a bunch of high end prospects to bring in as part of the trays that they made and to bring in guys like Robinson connote to bring Keno India's. They've already gotten rid of some of their better prospects this off season. So the answer isn't to gut the farm system, not when there are players out there and all it requires a resources Craig kimbrel and Dallas Kyko. They're out there you want to win a World Series a winnable division where everybody has flaws. Go make an aggressive New York. Kind of mood move. You're in the number one market in the country. Bernie van wagon. You wanna make a statement to Mets fans that you have the ear of ownership that this is a different era. This is the kind of you know, say what you want. You the this is the kind of era when? The Mets are going to be that team. That's going to spend like a big market team. Like twenty spend like there in New York City, go out and get frankly, I go out and get both. Kyko end kimbrel blow past that? Cap the luxury tax. But at least get one of them because they don't have a ripple effect. If you get kimbrel, then you can put though in the starting rotation and jettison Vargas. Or go get Kyko and see what impact that has get taking Vargas out of the rotation. See what impact that has? On your bullpen. They have to make a move because right now the strength of this Mets team was supposed to be the pitching staff and right now the overall team ERA, I think is like number twenty three in the league. And the bullpen is fourth worst in all of baseball. Maybe one thing if there was something if there was nothing out there that you can do if you were strictly having to rely on other teams to trade you somebody. But that's not the case. And don't make a situation where you're taking pass mistakes and throwing good prospects attaching them. To pass mistakes. That's kim. David office is suggesting in the near post that. That's a small time move. That's a small market move. That's not what you do. When you're in your city. We're New York Banderas than that. And Brodie van wagon show us you have a relationship with Jeff wilpon. And the Mets ownership..

And what contrast as impressive as the midst pitchers were Friday night. That's how the duo of Jason Vargas Corey Oswald looked in last night's eleven seven lost the Braves Mickey Callaway not happy with what Varga served up is just getting out at this point. That's really all. I can say I think he goes up there any battles. Does the best that it can party filling the reporters I really feel like I was. You know, struggling in the fact that you know, is out of sorts. Some balls on the ground put this one away early leading eight to four two winnings. Needing a win the Mets go with their best tonight. Jacob degrom works series. Finale coverage on WCBS, eight eighty Yankee fans backed off the ledge.

"Sixty six and from a med standpoint we're talking about jason vargas yesterday and what the best case scenario could be for jason vargas says he made his first started a year against the miami marlins and i believe mike fogelman your expectations for vargas were was it the same as von five innings of to run baseball i even said you might settle for three five and six room baseball yeah totally fine harris was hoping for six innings of two run baseball what you get five innings to run baseball the jason vargas and look every single ending it felt like vargas was in trouble there were ton of ducks on the pond the marlins ended up with sixteen hits in this ball game and yet still found a way to lose but a five ron top half of the first inning basically ended up being the difference for the amazed in zen you had nemo get on base early had mcneil get on base early could no should have grounded into a four six double play if it wasn't for the fact that the marlins and they're ridiculous shifting i mean they have now taking the shifts to another level with the way they had that set up i mean you got a chance to have a four six double play i'm looking at the infield the saying you can't have somebody who could cover second base exactly a proper shift but give them credit they capitalize wilson rama's capitalizes dom smith got to start over pete lonzo A fifth, and then they get to the. Map bullpen and as much as I like Seth logo. Let's be fair. Seth Lugo did not have it set Lugo was all out of sorts in his innings pasta work giving up three runs giving up five hits in the process. Didn't know what if the time no familiar, no Edwin. And then you're gonna Justin Wilson coming in. Bottom. Half of the eighth inning felt like he came in two or three batters too late. Another series win four one on a year with a six two five victory over the Miami Marlins. The storyline for the Mets is simple to scorn runs. The bullpen management leaves a lot to be desired. Somebody has to explain to me. Why Edwin is pitching in a seventy three game the night before and yet in a safe situation in a one run game. He's unavailable. That's not the way it should be drawn at all. That is something that will come back and bite the Mets later on this year. But you'll take the win you'll take any win in which Jason Vargas is getting a victory because you don't expect a whole lot of those. And now you have a chance to sweep the lowly Marlins is Jacob degrom. We'll take them out on Wednesday. So on all good day for the Mets wasn't pretty. Yes. Bit. But a win win. Let's say to New Jersey John Jones is up next. Johnny. Hey, what's going on day? John would shake abrupt. With the Yankees. I'm pulling my hair. Ryan I mean growing up playing baseball play little getting move into the play. First second third base is basic baseball one a one I've got for you. Was close and the second one for you. I I we go number one. They may not okay. You know base almost every day every day. He looks like a guy some back. Am I right or wrong? You're not wrong, and especially left handed pitcher makes a ton of sense topped iota. Okay. That that's the one thing that I'm like. The let the left and the right bad. I want to surpass now. Let's look over there. Let's see who's hot. I i'm. Second. You know, why? John. That's where I disagree. No. No, no, no, no. You wanna have in this day and age you best hitter hitting in the two spot. That's what the angels do. What my trout. It's what a lot of teams in baseball going to do you want Aaron judge in that to spot? We can agree on DJ. Lemay you leaving office team. We cannot agree on hit and Brett Gardner second. I can't do that. But anyway continue. Okay. Well, the recent gory and they must second line. Don't go to somewhere else where you put 'em guarded because gotta speak. How about we? We. His. The problem with that John I got Aaron judge hitting me. I want guys on base and the story. I don't want guys given up pounds when you could potentially get on base. Aaron judge VN Aaron judge is fine. Where he isn't that to all. Forget about order. Forget about semantics for a minute. The more important aspect for her company, and what they really need to understand over the next few weeks. They gotta make sure more often than not the best lineup day in and day out is gonna be out there. And I get it. You've got to kind of handle to whiskey a certain way because the guy employ last year. He's had a ton of injury Stratus career tool whiskies dot playing sixty seven days a week. She's not happening is going to pay four days a week. And you'll take that going to have to live with a Tyler Wade or whoever getting some burn at least for the time being. Gary sanchez. I want him in the line of five days a week. And I'm even going to consider the of one of those days. I want to play. Top prospect. He's up here. Let's see what he can do. And I think it makes sense to leadoff DJ. Lemay you when you're in a lefty because then you could have Bret gone down in that nine hole basically being second leadoff hitter. Let's say to Farmingdale Lenny is up next on a foul is up Lennie Hagedon. I JJ. I have a couple of issues with the Yankees this anybody out dead. No. That the Yankees have won anything in ten years. Does anybody noted that since the new Yankee Stadium has been built that I didn't know say jinx? But like people are getting hurt plays a Catholic getting hurt. And it started with mock to share up his last year with the Yankees. He's the first guy that went down. He got hurt that all sin. It's like a roller coaster ride every year. every year in excuse with the yankees they're not a world championship tune to differ there i do right now the yankees are dealing with a ton of injuries steph five games into the year you telling me team that hadn't over on the number at ninety six and a half wins now five games into the year your opinion is this team's done any good this team has done a world championship team and one point on the stadium by the way and i'm not a big fan in this stadium i miss the old place i love the old place i grew up at the old place that said i got a poke a hole in your theory because the first year they open the new yankee stadium they won the world series that's fact opinion that's a fact so no i do not believe the yankees down the new yankee stadium a quote unquote stink why mark sharon derek jeter and d- made two thousand twelve thirteen fourteen yankees have injury problems because there were no baseball team that's why this current yankee team is not old dave had freakish injuries guess what the freakish injuries all the baseball trae turner trying to just broke his finger murphy broke his finger problem with the national park and colorado have you watched them nets civilized tylenol decade plus there's an old adage i can't say it on the air because i'll get in trouble by chapin's you guys figure it out does it take a rocket scientist to figure it out you gotta rise above that the yankees of their first five games what lackluster mouthing anybody would argue that but it's five games in one hundred sixty two game season there is an attorney left in this year and oh by the way the won the world series last year that's any division you've got to be the one five to say they want five let's say the fort lee new jersey i could powell leslie joins us oh john did i enjoyed last night team to break the yankees i knew the tiger distinct this year but you know what it never gets old beat you had a moment listen lastly that's what you look for when you're dealing with a lousy team that's what you look for when you know you don't have a whole lot expectation going into the air you wanna moment and now we'll see if they can provide you with another moment here on wednesday so much right the he was over to help peterson was he got the game double i mean he's opposite fringe minor leaguer new future with the tigers i mean the one guy i'm going to be interesting to watch today's matt boyd i'm expecting a big season out i'm taking fifteen minutes a love potential donnybrook last year even better yeah you looking for players like that leslie if detroit that's what you're looking for you walk in for guys digging and be a part of your foundation and the property tigers is during this weird predicament because they were pretty good for a long period of time they went all in on a variety of different occasions with the role donor mike illitch before he passed away and they signed some really bad contracts as dominant as miguel cabrera once was and he's a future hall of fame player miguel cabrera right now is a shell vote he once was you're paying cost thirty million dollars a year you gotta hope jordan zimmerman continues to pitch well why because if joins zimmerman pitches leslie with the dire need of starting pitching maybe you can get yourself out of that contract and get something in return i mean these things you want to do now if you the tigers moved forward you know you're not that good you know you still have a lot of work to do in the minor leagues develop players contracts out of there and no it's gonna take some time we'll see we'll tell the hopefully tigers win the series this afternoon but i to write down really pumped up this weekend i mean she can stay i tell you what no one thought this team was going to be good when they beat minnesota bundy spanked minnesota with their big men particularly aaron henry xavier tillman shined i said to myself maybe just could work and can duke and the dad there for big men coming through against duke henry tillman luke ward i mean they were fantastic i thought that was the reason why the pigment and i camp when did destroyed l._s._u. to myself he got a chance well they're playing great basketball leslie and they wanna game against duke not playing their best game they shoot the ball pretty well their physical team they have size and they have the sort of point guard that you love because he's capable of taking a game over and caches winston winston can take games over now they're going to be frustrated by the defensive texas tech that's going to be a good old fashioned rock them sock them type game the question is going to be can michigan state solve the riddle of a dominant texas tech defense that has been befuddling for a bunch of different teams michigan had trouble gonzaga certainly had trouble so can michigan state get enough fence and shoot the ball well enough to win this game i think that's what they're going to need to connect shoot it john i feel they can't remember the reason what.

"Favorite today. And if you have Alexa, Google just say play at WFAN and you'll be locked into the fans. So Ravi Rosenhaus. See you excited about the prospect of Jason Vargas verse Seth Lugo sees going to be a fifth starter in the metro station issue. I'd rather have option. See I'd rather have Vargas out of the rotation and have Lugo be the swing man they need to find somebody else. Whether it's somebody and camp or sign somebody will Gonzales or clay Buchholz GIO Gonzalez. Go forget about claybon calls. But Jill Gonzalez will be fine option. He's killed the Mets for years when I come here. I agree with that. I think GIO Gonzalez probably choice say you would be in favor of colts of Vargas, I give you a choice of one at a tail. How about Wade Miley? He's still out there. Gigi sign somewhere. Did he I could be wrong. I always thought he was talented could've sworn Wade Miley signs somewhere between those two. Yes. Okay. Well, that's a good move for the back end the rotation for those fantasy guys out there cheap wins. The Astros lost out on mcculloch's for the year. Morton is in Tampa Bay. Recycle right, and Whitley was was suspended and one of the top pitching prospects, or whatever. So the Astros definitely needed it in the back. But I'll Say Bory Vargas, I don't want anything anything to do with Klay buckles. I know he had some good starts in Arizona. He looked like he was, you know, back to what he was, you know, five six years ago in Boston. But I still wouldn't take them on the Mets. Do you agree with me that will be the most appealing battle for the Mets in spring training daughter is going to be or do you think it's going to be out in centerfield? I think it's centerfield. I absolutely do. I on Brock's thin wanwa Gary situation now. Yeah, I think they're gonna they're gonna sort that out and they're going to go with the hot hand. Listen, look at the luminaries that have started in center field for this Mets team over the last ten fifteen years in the outfield Collin cowgill, Gary Matthews junior all these bombs so they can finally hopefully finding outfield they can go with you know, they got the two corner. Guys say. Two guys in a corner. Nimmo cafaro, right funding a corner who's playing I I don't know. I want to see the Mets go get legitimate centerfield. The I don't know if they have won crystal garrison thought in years and Bronstein I think it's a complete roll the dice. Right. And they have Desmond Lindsey who's probably the top outfield prospect. He's down in the minor leagues. He's a ways off. So they that's right. They do not have the current answer. But we'll see hopefully one of these guys pops out about this. He's still out there. Get him on and chief for one year Dotson Adam Jones, he'd be fine. He strikes out a lot. But. That was the Alderson way home runs and strike outs. But I I don't know if he's that big upgrade over what you've got here. Lagaras, did obviously he's a plus plus defense never on field though. I know never never this is wall of garrison twenty fifteen sure somebody on that. It's a long ways off one thing. I do not want us. Conforto place in a field. Although I like him defensively. He's much more. Cannot play centerfield if they wanna contempt. No way hates seventy seven hundred thirty seven sixty six sixty six said to Marlboro New Jersey, my joins us. He's up next on a foul. It's up, Mike. Good morning. How you doing my pal? Oh, I thought before it gets in my Yankee point gives you imagine Harper parking it into the lake club lakes. Mike. Now, our be this swing that. I've been jealous of for my entire life ban is a guy who doesn't exactly have that left handed power. That slap hitting ability of just slapping it over the short starts said. I kill swing. Mike racket get up to the plate pimp. It like Bryce opera hitting four hundred and fifty feet and splash landed right into that lake and call wakes to find out that that'd be beautiful. You have to bring down the Mets going San Fran. But anyway, just to get to Miami. I close. Do you think if the old man Steinbrenner was still alive? Either. One of these two guys would still be a free agent. One of them were Jackie, in fact, price. Wpro Yankee because you think about what George Steinbrenner always looked for. He always looked for Mike that box office type of player. Harper has that box office appeal. You know, the fact that he's been talked about since he was seventeen years old. The fact that his father always wanted him to be a Yankee. He always wanted to be a Yankee idolize Mickey Mantle. Yes. Price will be Aki of Georgia who's running the team, but you have to understand Mike they along with the rest of baseball for that matter. Everybody's handling their business a much different wedding. They did five ten fifteen years ago. It's a new world order. You know what? I mean. I I got you. But you know, what we were doing five ten fifteen years ago. We'll win a championship hijab dad, but Mike fairness the Yankees won championships with the likes of cheater, and Bernie, and Posada and Pettitte and Rivera the big ticket free agent. Now, they signed a couple of key free agents bogs. Jimmy key. They traded for Pau Neil. We know what happened with those nineties teams they needed to Warren how to win O'neil key and bogs did a great job and teaching at Yankee team. When the Yankees went down the road of Sheffield. Yeah. No. I mean, let me ask you a question in those years when he AKIs always seemed to get the top free agent. How did it end up as far as championship results? I making a good point book. But all I'm saying is last championship was online. We're getting all identity. Listen a desperation is there Mike the desperation is there because it's the idea of the Red Sox won the World Series that doesn't sit. Well, then you look at two thousand nine which is now ten years remove which is crazy to think about I mean, my senior year at Syracuse Fagan's champagne the whole deal that was ten years ago. It was a long long time ago. But Mike you have to look at this Yankee group and kinda exclude like twenty twelve twenty thirteen this group to me it's about twenty seventeen twenty eighteen young team emerging team. And I would agree that hopper would be the ideal fit in the lineup. And I'd rather have them on team that Giancarlo Stanton. Admit that Mike I would shop Harper for Stanton tomorrow. Date on and you stuck with Stanton. So if they're bringing in Bryce Harper the question is where you know what I mean? I know. But now, you're now you're hoping that that you get a guy like Greg bird come comeback at a out of his funk, it'd be a lefty bat in the lineup hoping Gary Sanchez. I can't imagine Gary has it. Yeah. Like yet last year. You got he's every all signs point. He's gotta be better than it was last year. But I mean, that's a big ask referred to guy didn't show you anything. Well, listen, I don't even know if it's gonna be great Boura, Mike, and I appreciate the call good. Call befriend can't say bird is giving him a first baseman. Because what if Luke void is the real deal? What if Luke void? With that. Incredible hulk walk is slogan. The ball. A place last year down the stretch. He was one of the more important Yankee hitters. It's crazy because he's a guy that picked up off the Skopje. He's a guy who expect a whole lot out of. That's your competition in Yankee cap neck camp Santa fill in the fifth starter Yankee cabinets who's your first baseman and can tool whiskey show. You now that he's ready to be a starting shortstop any absence adidi. Yes. Perfect world Bryce Harper's Yankee, but not a perfect world. But it's not like some travesty to one of these guys. Not coming here. I'm sorry. It's not see if you didn't have stars on the team. I feel a lot differently. Got plenty.

Embarrassing not to have in the index if there's a stock that has been, brutalized unloved dirt cheap and nobody wants said it's embarrassing to have it in the index of course they're gonna take those out now. What happens is two things firstly they announced a change and they announced. The date the change will take effect that gives the index funds a grace period in which to trade where they're. Going to move those stock prices and. Those, stocks will Still be in the index so they won't create a performance drag their everybody please front runner trades well there's a. Hedge fund community that does exactly that so, the, trades are, made the positions built, and then given over to the index funds. On the, effective date. Preferably atr near. The close the stocks added when. You, compare them with the discretionary deletions deletions that aren't. Related to corporate actions outperformed by nearly nine percent during that grace period so in index funds say we don't move stock prices with our trading that's that's rubbish They let other. People move it on their behalf and they could say oh look we haven't moved this well there's that and then there's also the simple fact that the ads beat the discretionary deletions by nine percent during a period of days well that's a big move so you. Also have. A part of that twenty three percent return, difference, in the. Subsequent year is simply mean reversion taking the price impact of the index funds. Back out and. Part of it is.

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.
