I'm curious what people think a Mets/Realmuto trade would look like if it happened asap - only using minor leaguers.

Gimenez + Alonso and a lottery ticket type

I wouldn't go any higher than Alonso plus an arm or 2.

Honestly don't know what the Marlins system looks like, and while Gimenez is our "#1 prospect", I'm not sure he's a guy low market rebuilds get excited over. The upside is sort of capped, and aren't you more inclined to swing for the fences?

Probably Nido to replace Realmuto, 2 of our better arms (Kay, Peterson, Dunn, Oswalt, Flexen, etc etc.) and then maybe Alonso? But that would mean they have Bour next up on the block.

Its a tough fit for only minor leaguers. I think its more likely to get done with like a Nimmo/Gsellman/Dunn or something like that. Controlled major leaguers and then a lottery ticket in the lower level.

I wouldn't expect them to entertain anything like this. I'm pretty anxious to see what Plaw does with the opportunity he's going to get.

You really think the Mets are going to gut their thin farm system when their starting C is going to return in 2 weeks and they are 13-5? I don't see anything like this happening from our uber conservative FO.

Fast fwd to July and Plaw has reverted to bad habits and the team is still very much in playoff mode, that's when you would expect a deal like this. But you would also think the Marlins are going to wait to get teams like the Brewers, Snakes and Halos involved in the pursuit.

I think that's where I am as well. Certainly wouldn't give up Amed even though I know that's what they want.

I don't think the ask was what we thought the Mets would offer. I think it was what would you need to offer to get it done now.

Of course there is no expectation of the Mets becoming big traders, but they are barreling toward a logjam at 1B with the 2 biggest bat prospects (never mind Dom is no longer officially a prospect) are immovably at 1B. With Alonso's now fast ascent into prospect notice and neither guy realistically a candidate to move off of 1B, one of them is going to inevitably need to be cashed in for something.

If Alonso continues to mash thru the EL, one would logically think he's going to move ahead of Dom in the org hierarchy since Sandy loves the longball and Dom is more of a gap to gap guy. I think power is likely the separator with defense and weight issues looking like a challenge for both guys.

Spitballing on how the Mets would use Dom in a trade..? Not sure the fit for a 1Bman in Miami as mentioned somewhere above. It's not likely the Marlins trade Bour (3.5 control yrs) to open up 1B for Dom Smith. Danny Duffy? Dom, Dunn & Wheeler? Duffy has 3/45M remaining. Mets rotation of Noah, deGrom and 3 LHers? I think I like that.

Interesting thoughts. I was thinking:

Domo, Vientos, Nido and a lottery ticket arm
