    BLOCKBUSTER: Mets Acquire Marcus Stroman For Anthony Kay and Simeon Woods-Richardson

    Wow. Did NOT see that coming. Can't wait to see who's going back.

    Maybe this is just the teaser to a blockbuster deal that will ultimately bring Thor to the Atlanta Braves!
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Iím so confused, what are they doing? Does this mean Wheeler or Syndergaard are on their way out then?

    Yes, Thor is on his way to the Atlanta Braves.

    I last read on MLBTR that they were likely planning on keeping Wheeler and signing him to an extension & that Thor was the likeliest to be traded.

    Mets trading "pitching prospects" to Toronto.

    Woods-Richardson? Kay? Peterson? Szapucki?

    As for Thor, I read that the Braves, Padres (and another team I can't seem to remember) were the most likely destinations. It would require a team with those sorts of prospects including a major league ready or nearly-ready top pitching prospect.

    However, now that they went and acquired Stroman I'm a little unsure what they are doing...

    Nate Pearson maybe? If so, you'd expect him to be the only pitching prospect included and since they said "prospects" I kind of doubt it. Unless it's a non top 30 team prospect that is also included.

    Official - it's Kay and Woods-Richardson going to TOR.

    Seems pretty light on the Jays' side.

    Funny how Mets fans on Twitter are screaming they gave up too much, and Jays fans saying they didn't get enough back....

    Good thing I don't have a favorite team. I'm impartial. Deranged, but impartial.

    LOL...whoops, got the two teams mixed up here.

    Guess I missed a dose of the 'ol medication this morning

    MLB Prospect Watch said this about Woods-Richardson:

    "He spent his pro debut sitting around 93, while touching 97 with a riding fastball. Woods-Richardson's quick arm from a high-three-quarters slot helps him snap off a sharp, top-to-bottom curveball that shows plus potential, and he already demonstrates some feel for turning over an effective changeup."


    At only age 18 this seems like a high ceiling player to me. GM Brony now has traded the Mets first 2 picks of the 2018 draft.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Stroman moved again, along with Thor and anyone else they can get what they deem to be value for.

    Astros fans are talking about/wishing for Tucker for Thor/Bumgarner/anyone.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases, and any Grady Sizemores I don't have

    And now they flipped Vargas to the Phillies...I hope that means Wheeler and Syndergaard stay
