    I’m curious about the relationship between the front offices of the Mets and the Phillies. The previous deal with Cabrera and the young pitcher leads to a favor between the parties with the Bautista deal?

    Sometimes we forget that deals are made between humans who have antagonistic or friendly relations.

      Has a deal been made? I just checked MetsBlog and didn’t see anything.

      But really – what can you honestly expect to get in return for Bautista? If ever there was a time to do a “favor” it would be here.

        I’ll take a cheese steak for Bautista.

        OK – Who could we get as a position player to build the franchise around ?

        Manny Machado – that’s right, he is 26 years old and at his prime.

    Did I just get carried away? I suppose I was presupposing that the Mets need to open a roster spot for David Wright and Philadelphia needs a right handed bat.

      They need to open a roster spot for Brandon Nimmo today.

      Philly claimed Bautista on revocable waivers – they are the only team that can trade for him right now. The Mets either make a deal, let the Phillies have him for nothing or they pull him back.

    If someone wants JBats, let him go get a pennant race. He’s been a good citizen…it would send a bit of a message to players that the Mets intend to treat people decently. As Brian Pointed out, there’s no real “Return” for him.

      I don’t know if Bautsita would want to go. He’s getting pretty regular playing time now, if he goes to the Phillies, he would be a bench bat. Does he value playing time or playoff chance? He’s went to the playoffs in ’15 and ’16, so he’s already been there recently.

    Take change subject, I do say Noah makes for a pretty good #3 starter.
