    If Cohen is willing to give/take on significant amount of money towards Scherzer, probably a Ginn/Santos and Mangum. For Bryant: Rameriz, Butto and Gilliam.

    They should all be in our top 30.

    Rumor around the corner is Mets are more interested in rentals than guys like Berrios

    Cespedes on the other hand was hitting bombs with men on base regularly which led to a lot of wins.
    Well we didn’t know that’s what Cespedes was bringing to the table. It was a last second move because Alderson had no other options lol.

    Trade Rumors

    It’s going to be interesting what the cost of all these players are.

    In terms of marquee guys, the one I’d want the most is Scherzer. I think he instantly turns this team into more than just a playoff contender.

    I don’t want too many rentals, especially if it’s going to bleed out the top 15 in the system. I think Scherzer is the one rental that I’d consider giving up l/Vientos for.

    I think Merrifield ends up a Mariner, he’s not exactly what the Mets need right now, either.

    I’ve made my position on Bryant pretty clear, I think he’s the guy to go get.

    Story and Baez would be solid upgrades but I’m not sure that their bats are good enough…Lindor/Baez up the middle combo would probably be the most fun of all time, though. Lol.

    Lots of guys on the move, I wonder who we’ll get.

    Washington also possibly making Turner available…I would pay a premium for him. Plays short until Lindor gets back, moves over to 2nd or CF afterwards. ****, see if he can handle third.

    I’d happily give them Mauricio, Ginn, and any other prospect that follows.

    Turner would cost an arm and a leg

    Let's be real. The Nats will not send marquee players to the Mets, unless the Mets give up 2 or 3 top 10 prospects. So forget Scherzer or Turner. However, it is good to kick the tires. I like the Maserati but it just doesn't fit my style of vehicle especially at age 70.

    Let's get the "other" closer that we sorely need. Diaz has shown us this month, that he cannot be trusted with every lead. And let's get another mid rotation starter for depth more than anything else. deGrom and Carrasco will both be in the mix soon. And who knows if Thor will be ready - even if it is mid-September that would be a tremendous add even if it is in the bullpen.

    What if Steve kicks in 15 million for the deferments or 25 million? What would the prospects be in that trade?

    Not sure that even the "maverick" Uncle Steve would do that - but that might be needed to get anything done with the Nats. No other team (except the Yankees, Dodgers or Padres) would ever think of doing that. So Max comes here, pitches just ok, then leaves and we have another Bobby Bonilla payday?

    They don't want an undersized solider sitting on deflated balloons.

    Listening to Zack Scott, it was pretty clear that the Mets are still looking to add a starting pitcher and they’re open to adding a piece that can play shortstop (and other positions).

    Of course, reliever(s) is a need as well.

    I believe he was talking about what Cespedes provided in 2015

    out of all the names mentioned, only one of them gets you a WS ring.
    Max Scherzer

    Kris Bryant is an awesome player but his bat in 2021 and what Davis offers might not be that big of a difference on a 2 month basis.
