INF Luis Santana, C Scott Manea, and OF Ross Adolph in the deal

Bet y'all won't like this one.

Brutal

Yet more evidence there is no money left. This is Peter Angelos/Orioles level scary.

Ummm what was I saying about BVW not being a fan of prospects? His name is JD Davis and he’s an infielder

I love this btw.

Whoever in that room that they brought in from the analytic department clearly didn't think much of the lower minor talent though. It just puts more pressure on this new group to really draft well.

I'm a fan of JD Davis though.

It was obvious from the moment he traded Kelenic that he's not a fan of someone else's prospects. We'll see if he's here long enough to be this liberal about trading his own drafted guys.

Looks like the new FO isn't a fan of the lower minor talent like some of us were. Now go draft better and take more risks in the draft, Mets have the people to find and recognize them.

BVW has no interest in prospects that will never play in the majors while he's the GM. He's all in for two or three years and then he'll bolt when the team is old, has no farm system, and the Wilpons still won't let him spend real money.

The guy has a pretty sweet minor league track record

But i'm not sure how he fits in - Is he competing with McNeil for Zobrist Supersub role?

Absolutely love this deal.

Davis has nothing to prove in minors. Needs regular ABs at major league level.

Adolph and Manea both had good seasons in 2018, but they are fringe prospects. Santana is interesting, but I won't lose sleep over a rookie baller being moved for a guy who has already proven himself at every level of the minors and could contribute to the major league team in 2019.

Guessing McNeil gets time at 3B/OF and first PH bat off the bench while Davis gets more time at 1B/3B/OF when facing LHP.

C Plawecki
INF McNeil
OF Broxton
3B/OF Davis
1B/OF Smith or INF Guillorme

Possible bench

Move Lagares and Frazier, sign Pollock and open things up at 3B for McNeil/Davis who will also back up corner OF spots.
