2019 MLB Trade Deadline

Unsure: New York Mets

As always, the Mets are an enigma. They shipped off Jason Vargas, then acquired Marcus Stroman then put Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler on the block and then held on to both of them.

If the Mets are going to try and flip Stroman this winter or they truly want to try and make a push no one is sure.

However the ingredients are there for a playoff push, the Mets have a good offensive core with Jeff McNeil, Pete Alonso and J.D. Davis with contributions from Robinson Cano and Todd Frazier as well. Then, of course, the rotation of Syndergaard, Jacob DeGrom, Wheeler and now Stroman.

The Mets have won eight of their last ten, are on a six-game winning streak and now find themselves just 4 and a half games out of the second wild-card spot.

If this works and the Mets sneak into the postseason they become winners, but if they are sitting out and lose Wheeler for nothing, or one of Stroman/Syndergaard gets hurt then it’ll make the front office look awful.
