I know he lost weight this off-season

Mets bought out Michael Cuddyer and Jason Bay and released Perez before the last year of his contract.

but these cuts are easier to make when you're in first place.



Pablo should get down on his knees

Leaving the Yanks aside - those are some funny gifs. Much as I hate the Red Sox, I guess their fans have senses of humor too.
Mets should trade

the weight loss was going to trigger a very good season for him.

Is that a joke?

Reyes is owed nothing and a free agent after the season, Panda is owed over $40M AFTER this season and not to mention Reyes is having a better year (and Reyes' season is awful).
I wouldnt trade for that contract  
spike : 7/14/2017 1:02 pm : link
I d see what he has left after he achieves free agency. Maybe a minor league deal.

They desperately need a 3rd baseman
Pablo  
old man : 7/14/2017 1:03 pm : link
needs to be Cheringtons gloryhole.
As do Craig and Castillo.
Discounting he weight issue, my guess is PS was afraid of Bochy, less so for Farrell.

So let him go through waivers and sign him to a new prove it deal, don't trade for him, that would be a disaster.

I don't even want to sign him to a prove it deal, he sucks.

I think that they already released Craig earlier this year. And I feel a little bad for Castillo, money notwithstanding. He actually is putting up good numbers and looks like he could help a team and play at the major league level. His contract is actually prohibiting him from doing so. I'm sure he likes the money but it's a shame it actually hurts his future.
Castillo can be traded  
spike : 7/14/2017 1:24 pm : link
Bosox has to eat some money to do so
But there's no imperative to do so  
Bill L : 7/14/2017 1:25 pm : link
he can languish for free

Plus, i'm not exactly sure how this works but I think if they trade him the salary the pay goes against their cap.
Castillo  
pjcas18 : 7/14/2017 1:33 pm : link
is not on the Red Sox 40-man roster to avoid having his $10+M annual salary count against the luxury tax.

Like Bill said if they trade him (and eat salary) that would put them at or over the luxury tax threshold (depending on how much) and if they call him up (after adding him to the 40-man) same thing - his salary then counts toward luxury tax.

He's stuck, unless they find someone to take him and his salary, from what I understand.
Hated the Sandoval signing from the beginning......

And that is one of the reasons Ben Cherrington is no longer GM.
Five Years/$95 Mill?

The money. He still has the rest of this season plus two more. Guaranteed.
Sounds like Todd Frazier is changing his Sox from white to red  
Andy in Halifax : 7/15/2017 8:39 am : link
Not confirmed but seems to be out there on Twitter sources from both teams. Supposedly 3 insignificant prospects which makes sense.

Frazier has actually been pretty good this year, his average has been hurt but a low BABIP. Not a star but a decent hitter and a good defender.
