Nick Madrigal who is a good young major league talent. Not a prospect (a former top 50 one) but a guy they can plug in next year when he comes back from injury and can hit. Baez was worth a good prospect, just not PCA. I'm not sure the Mets were going to make that type of move until Cohen put pressure on them to make a deal. Once that happened, they presumably backed themselves into a corner and panicked. This cash considerations crap is stupid though. If they could have gotten Baez and Williams for a lesser prospect and all they had to do was eat the rest of their remaining deals, they should have done so.
