ZGiants98 : 1/6/2019 2:50 pm
D Day for Shecky.

Walker Lockett and Sam Haggerty.

@MattEhalt
With Mets trading Plawecki, they're relying on d'Arnaud. I've said before I would've gone with Plawecki, but Mets see more upside with d'Arnaud.

Lockett started three games for the Padres last year. He adds more upper-level starting depth.

Are the Mets

Trying to make as many moves as the Mariners?
Have to say.. I liked JD Davis and Broxton moves

This one? I got nothing.
The Mets have had...

A busy day. Depth moves, but depth counts
Has anyone checked on shecky?  
Eric on Li : 1/6/2019 3:02 pm : link
really hope these new analytic guys know what they are doing. I donít like this move but if they go sign Maldonado I donít care. Backup C is absolutely a need now.

Nido can give us just as much as Maldonado for much less money.
I still don't understand why they went with TDA

over Plawecki.

Makes very little sense to count on tda for anything. He couldnít throw or stay healthy before tjs.

I am guessing TDA is untradeable due to his injury and recovery time.

If you compare Plawecki and TDA, TDA has clearly been the better catcher. Can he stay healthy even as a backup? Idk.

TdA probably wasn't fetching anything in a trade and at least Lockett was a 4th Round pick who hasn't yet turned 25 and has pitched at AAA. I am sure Mickey and Eiland have told management how the pitchers feel about pitching to Plawecki and d'Arnaud
FG calls Lockett  
ZGiants98 : 1/6/2019 3:10 pm : link
basically a ML ready backend starter. He's only 24. He'll probably only ever be a 5 starter but we do need depth I guess.

Vargas, Frazier, and Lagares are all expendable now after this weekend IMO. Three guys making big money Im sure BVW would love to jettison.

Sounds like a great pitcher yet his era/fip havenít been under 4.5  
Eric on Li : 1/6/2019 3:40 pm : link
Since AA (2016).
PCL though.  
ZGiants98 : 1/6/2019 3:42 pm : link
If we are going to ding Davis/Alonso's HR totals there we have to credit to guys capable of keeping an ERA/FIP mid 4's there.

Dont think he's anything special and I was hoping for a better return for Plawecki but he likely ends up a decent #5.
Walk Shecky

Well done Mets

True to form, they are keeping in their long standing plan to secure 3rd place in their division.

Shuffling around deck chairs until next months rent checks clear for sterling. It is almost unfathomable to me that they donít bring in another catcher, but I guess we will see.
If TDA is expected to be ready pretty close to the start  
ZGiants98 : 1/6/2019 5:10 pm : link
of the season I dont see them signing another catcher. We arent going with 3. I get not liking TDA as the choice but TDA is the backup they are choosing. Nido can fill in also.

so true.

but I personally do find it fun GM of empty promises is at least making fun deals.


if only this was 2000 and these are just depth moves while a big move was still gonna happen...


There is no way team is relying on these catchers. I imagine they are waiting for cheap deals when catchers get desperate or get waived in ST.

Itís a damn shame. Several impact players out there that could make them real contenders
