The Mets don't randomly do stuff like this. A Granderson deal must be imminent.

And he's in RF tonight presumably being showcased. Not that it's necessarily a good idea to replace Conforto in the OF with Grandy

Neil Wagner is actually sort of an interesting signing as much as a 33 yr old journeyman reliever can be.

Has never really had major league success, but has high octane stuff and after a dominant 2013 AAA season, wound up having TJS in 2014 - Rays signed him to a 2 year minor league deal to let him rehab with them. Looks like its taken him a while to get back, and who knows if the stuff is still there, but this is one of those small moves I am envious of other teams taking a no-downside look at, so kudos for this group doing the same.

Still a few hours left to make changes...

Snider was actually acquired from the Rangers for cash, so technically it was a trade.

And you all thought the Wilpon's weren't going to reinvest the money saved on the trades into the team! :P :lol:

Is Simon thinking that Mets traded for Snider only to use him for trade bait?

Travis Snider feels like a roster filler, but he feels like just the kind of player who could go to another team, hit HR that swings NL Ctl

Wow. Great. More org filler. How about Sandy and Co. show some imagination and vision for once and actually take a chance on someone with some upside........ like Arismendy Alcantara who was just DFA'd three days ago and is still only 25 years old.
