The Mets balked out of a trade that involved:
-Desmond to Mets
-Zobrist/Escobar to Nats
-Syndergaard + ?? to Rays
So obviously it comes down to the unnamed player. If it was deGrom, then I understand not pulling the trigger. Jacob is not to be traded. But what if it was Montero? Or Matz? I think this is just the cheap fuck Wilpons clinging to their measly penny-costing prospects.
