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.

"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.

"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.

"Guess with nets? Nice win over the the wizard of five and ten, but he's got you broke the losing streak. Got play better defense because in the three losses. They gave up one sixteen one twenty twice and tonight. They won we gave up one hundred and. Four. Knicks wise that game, and they went up by nineteen even before they get to that point. They're lucky because the pelicans would just missing every shocked ahead. I mean, it just wide open jump shots with nobody on him with clanking that. Does you know that's not the Knicks defense. That's the lack of defense and the lack of them being able to score in the second half. They took over scored forty one points in the fourth quarter alone. And the Knicks last four games they've given up one hundred and twenty eight twice hundred fifteen hundred twenty nine. In those games. Let's go to one hundred and twenty four and that still wasn't enough to win a game. He also heard from. Federal essay, Fred Jeff wilpon from us. And why talking about a potential trade rumor? It's hot stove. But if I something. Vile to me. You're saying you got you want to win now. You've got a pretty decent pitching staff with the Graham. Syndergaard Wheeler mats, and then the cast of characters for the five by maybe Jason Vargas is in that. That that discussion. And he probably is because he's got another year on his contract. You let him go anywhere. But if you really move to Graham, I'm sorry move. Syndergaard. So the ground becomes the number one. Was he still is we'll move to spite which is you know, he did very well asked you. Nine injured Matt's who was still not confident on the kid. He can get to a whole you it. I'll be hurt. He's the number three. What Farkas becomes the number four who the number five? And are you getting major league ready plays? Actually, I'm confused. I really am that. Let me get straight talk about winning now, but you may move Syndergaard. How does it make you win now? And he's saying, you know, what by moving Syndergaard and adding future pieces or some current pieces. You're going to go from a low eighties winning team to the low nineties with what? Who's a cashier, by the way. And the first baseman, and they'll leftfielder. And the right fielder and center field while we're at that in the bullpen bullpen closer was who. And the bullpen is white. Maybe agent GM has something up his sleeves that we don't know about. Maybe he's working on some deals, but I don't understand why why would you even leak it? I mean, unless you're scared of of making the move. Let's let's throw some bread crumbs on the water and see what happens. If you've ever gone fishing pond, he's rose some bread and the water all of a sudden fish come up and start attacking it is interest. But I don't I don't. I guess I guess if this is any legs to it. I guess if I'm the general manager. I would call the Yankees just what are you got? Are you interested if you call cash, but he says, okay? Thank you. Right. But he's a well, we're interested. What are you offering? There you go. But I think the Mets would never do that. Because it's the same thing. On me. They wouldn't move the ground to the Yankees because you don't want to see him turn into a Cy Young award winner for your cross town rivals if you trade them halfway across the country. No matter what kind of year he has unless you're staying up all night with the baseball package. You're not going to see what he what he has you wake up in the next morning. It's not a. It's puzzling. It's puzzling. Why would with the what this is supposed to be when you're trying to sell us a Bill goods that? Oh, yeah. We're gonna we're gonna win this year. Well, I mean, what do you mean? You mean win as have eighty two wins and eighty losses wins or wins to go to the postseason. Or eighty five eighty six wins, which won't get you anything. But you know, means you're playing a little better than five hundred. I I don't I don't understand. I don't know why this was leaked. I don't know. Why is out there? Unless you're nervous. And you just want to see what the fan base is saying what the what the pendants are going to write about what the fan base called radio stations and wants to know what are they doing? What what's going on? And let's face it. If you don't trade Syndergaard and you're sitting tight with pitching staff. Okay. You have the best pitching staff. You might say. What's? Who's driving in the runs who's closing? I mean, all these. I'm sure a lot of these questions will be solved. Oh next couple of weeks. I would think. I mean, I would have been more interested. If a tidbit came floating out that the Mets are talking to Kimberly agent. Oh, okay. You know that came out. Okay. Well, they need a close. Okay. He's not the guy. He was. But he knows the National League. Okay. He knows the brave. We know that's makes a little sense. You hear Cashman talking about Machado. Kicking the tires on it? The different. It's like the Mets. It get the feel the cash with is is looking to do a test drive with metallic. He's gonna take them out for spin ever, by Carney. Take the test drive and. Dealing sits in the back seat, and you drive around the block and wonderful car and looking at hustles all the time. Right. The Mets like their faces pressed against the car window outside. Wow. That's a pretty car. He's just standing there. And finally, the salesman comes in comes outside, and sir would you like to come in out of coal and take a look at that new car Machado. No, no, no. This to stand here and look at it. Having a sale, sir. Phychi real good. What does this coming in this city, and it no, no, I couldn't do that? Couldn't couldn't possibly do that. Meanwhile, there's there's Cashman. Okay. I'm ready for my test drive. And you know, they'll like. The faculty wilpon going to car dealer. So what do you got that doesn't work that needs some work that looks pretty well? At this current a bag only has three wheels. And we can't find a can't find a brake pad for how much does that. We couldn't say no, no, tell me how much of that we can fix it. Anybody's got a broken arm. Broken leg. Limp. Bad sinus, allergies. Allergic to the horizon. We want him we want. We're gonna tell you a couple of thing. And then the Yankees, they got sunny gray, which nobody wants and now the reds, and and the as we'll take them. And I understand the as taking a metro he added success. That's that's his comfort zone. Can I get a frontline player? Look if I'm the as the I want a on Billy bean. I want him. I'm not giving you Jack forum. We'll give you we'll give you a minor league class eight prospect. One good and one not so good. And that's it. I'm not giving you a guy who, you know. I'm gonna give it goes against what Billy bean as while. I'm going to give away one of my young players who I'm gonna put in to play whatever position and he's going to do. Well. And then when it's time for him to get big money. We'll get rid of you think I'm giving that away to you. And last, but not least. President Trump gave out of medal of freedom awards highest rated highest medal for civilians Babe Ruth with I heard about this last week, the Elvis got one and I'm like, wait a minute. All this time and Babe Ruth has. He's never received the medal of freedom. Because I heard it said, why do you give them too? I just assumed. Sultan, the swat he had one. What all these presidents? What took so long? What somebody overlooked at what somebody say, Babe Ruth. And they said, nah, he's not deserving what? And then I found that read a nice article about him. During segregation he played against an eagerly barnstorming teams. And you know, the the rumor was the bay boys wanted to manage that was going to get a shot because they thought he couldn't control his own life. And he said one of the story one of the storylines was the Commissioner in the owners were afraid he was going to bring black ballplayers into baseball before. Jackie robinson. And we can't have that. Seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six a lot of Mets little football. We come back after this. Hey, this is and I'm here to tell you all about United Healthcare and their Oxford products. They've served me very well over the last twenty years, and I've been very happy with the coverage that I've received not only do I get my insurance through them. They also support.

Two hundred billion dollars the firm is, located. In Newport Beach California let's. Talk about a study you did way back when looking at the s. and, p. five hundred index which theoretically is a passive and we'll put a footnote on exactly what passive means you found from nineteen eighty. Nine to twenty seventeen the last year there was a full year of. Data available stocks editor the index underperform those that were kicked out by an average of twenty three percentage points over. The ensuing twelve months that's not a. Bad, gap in return. Oh my goodness It's amazing so so what are the implications of this and what does this mean about the stock picking acumen of the editors on the committee of. The SNP index who select the stocks that go into it I. Don't fault the index committee for the way they make. Choices they're under their clients are the people who licensed the index right and the people who licensed the index want. The index to include all the names, that. Are hot beloved and our. 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.

"Thing with the media i haven't spoken news and say the motor into ballpark yes so everybody was encouraged by spraying he had that first outing five innings one at one run people are feeling good all right all right he's been lousy since then everyone does it there's there's no doubt about it baseball i could give you a list of starters who who've been roughed up divorce i understand that well we have one here with the new york yankees and sunny gray but the mets have a pitcher coming back right and it's damaged jason vargas and vargas going to be in your attention so you're weighing the options of wheeler of mats and of harvey and out of those three was the not that stephen that's been why didn't the world on fire but horvath's by foreign aways look the worst and a couple of the starts let's be honest they have not been competitive in any way i mean that start down in atlanta will was his noncompetitive as it gets and i get it in nazi wheeler haven't done anything either hold on a second zach two very good starts to share and he had a lousy start against the corner heels zach this year has looked for better than matt harvey has an any start this year the start down in miami and i know the marlins steak will that was a very very good start across the board this isn't really what i wanted to bait like this is why i give harvey longer leash because if they can get him right he puts them at another level here's the problem that guy is never going to be the same ever again not met uniform they're not get mad harvey right they have been patient day had been fair he's not doing the job eight so resultsoriented business anthony last week well i can't fault them for making a change in the rotation i really can't okay you might be right now on the thing.

"Major leagues it could behoove you to go to the bullpen because maybe you could come on in for an inning or two period and dominate and let it all go but it's not if you're not willing to do that then you could take a demotion to the minors because jason vargas is coming back most likely next week jason vargas deserves a spot an opportunity to perform in this rotation and he will get that zack wheeler so far even though i'm not convinced he has done enough to deserve that opportunity stephen matt's has does enough has done enough to deserve that opportunity matt harvey has not but matt harvey still as his shades on that tell them everything is okay and he found himself in the last two innings and he proved that it could be a starting pitcher in the last two innings matt you prove nothing last night because the only reason you were still on the mouth is because the mets wanted to use you to eat some innings has anyone else would pull to the six runs that you allowed in three innings you shouldn't even have got that opportunity to be out there in the fourth fifth and six am retire the last eleven out of twelve batters but the reason you got that opportunity is because the mets wanted to have you eat some innings and you still happen to pitch well after the disaster of a start so matt harvey's ego is the problem and the mets can't let that ego hendra the success of this ballclub they cannot if matt harvey has the problem getting out because i used to like matt harvey i used to be a big fan i used to tolerate his ego when he was winning but when you are a losing pitcher and you're not effective i will not tolerate that ego and you could not let that ego be detrimental to the team zack wheeler wanted to start zack wheeler said i believe i'm a starting pitcher he proved it he done enough to continue that opportunity but he did at least have the common courtesy to say i will do whatever it takes to win and that means go the bullpen i'll do it matt harvey could not do that last night so matt harvey i have a big problem with you and it all starts with your biggest problem and that's your ego that prevents you from doing what is right for.
