Skepticism abounds that the Mets and Tigers will be able to complete an Ian Kinsler trade. The Pirates' Josh Harrison, whom @MarcCarig first mentioned as an option, would make sense as an alternative.


As mentioned- when a plan depends on a trade- bet on that plan not happening. Sandy’s already walking back:

Puma:

Alderson on trade possibilities: "Our minor league system right now is not brimming with prospects."

I like the idea of Harrison, but I don't want to give up on Gsellman.

Mind boggling that he would say that.

Is he even aware that he takes responsibility for the farm system??

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

He leaves that in DePodesta's capable hands.

With all of the talk of Yelich, Piscotty would come cheaper.

Alderson: "With Brandon Nimmo in right field you think we need Stanton?"

Shocking!!!

Alderson says the Mets will be looking for "value" in the relief market. Won't "jump into the inferno."

Alderson on bullpen market: "We are not going to chase players. There are a lot of guys out there."

And the finale:

Alderson said adding another starting pitcher would be a fourth priority on a list of three.

(All of the above from Puma’s Twitter)
