Mets Are Wheeling And Dealing! Two Trades in One Day!

Moves on moves. The Mets are makin’ moooooves!

The Mets have traded OF Matt den Dekker to the Washington Nationals for left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins, the team announced.

Blevins has posted a 9.00 ERA in eight games this spring for the Nationals.

Oh wow this guy looks like dogshit.

Good luck to den Dekker. Our lowercase d squad lost their weakest link today. deGrom and d’Arnaud have looked good so far this Spring!

Hopefully Kirk handles himself as our fifth outfielder. This is his last chance.

Mets Trade for LHP Alex Torres

The Mets have traded RHP prospect Cory Mazzoni and a PTBNL to the Padres for left-handed reliever Alex Torres, the team announced Monday.

Torres had a 3.33 ERA and 1.46 WHIP last season in 54 innings, during which right-handed batters hit .209 with a .275 on-base percentage and lefties hit .256 with a .415 OBP against him.

Hey Bighat! We got Bighat! Click here for a picture of Bighat.

John Olerud 2.0 and I love it. Hopefully Alex Torres is better than Andres Torres, who Sandy traded Angel Pagan for. Nice move, Sandy! Baseball maverick.

Obviously Bighat makes no money and was late to camp due to visa issues. Awesome. Speaking of visa issues, with the embargo on Cuba coming to an end, I wonder what the Mets’ excuse will be going forward on that front. Bighat is Venezuelan, just like Johan Santana. I’m not saying there’s any correlation there, but god damn do I fucking love Nohan. Any connection to him is good in my book.

So pens are usually a crapshoot. Ours is no different. Is Black healthy? Is Parnell? Are Mejia and Familia going to get it together? Losing Edgin was huge. I’m glad the Mets made this play. This is objectively a good move (unless the PTBNL turns out to be someone like Matz, which it assuredly won’t be), and unfortunately the crapshoot just has to play out from here. The numbers show that Bighat is actually better against righties, and that’s something to watch out for. But we got a Major League lefty in the pen, and that’s a good move.

P.S. Damn John Olerud was good. Remember when our team could hit?

Mets and the Ever-Elusive Signing of Anyone

The cheap Jew bastards are at it again…

The Mets are reportedly talking with LH reliever Joe Thatcher.

The report failed to mention that the conversation was:

Joe: Hello, this is Joe Thatcher.

Sandy: Oooh I’m sorry I must have the wrong number.

Or, this:

Joe: Hello, this is Joe Thatcher.

Sandy: So are you going to the Yankees or the Astros?

See Mets fans!? They’re talking! The reports are accurate! Seeeee?

After this “story” broke, the Mets Jewbrass came out and said that we should mitigate our expectations for Joe Thatcher.

MITIGATE! FOR JOE THATCHER! Not Tulo. Not Moncada. Joe fucking Thatcher. Good God, I don’t know if I can mitigate any further than the negative space where my expectations already reside.

Matt Harvey writes an article that says he’s hungry as fuck. The fans are hungry as fuck. GIVE US SOMETHING YOU FUCKING JEWS!! And I’m not talking about signing for the sake of signing. I’m talking about the fact that we need a shortstop, a lefty arm, and that deGrom and Harvey are our 4th and 5th best hitters.
