    I highly doubt that
    Alvarez is a high end premium prospect and while Scherzer is an all time great pitcher, heís at the end of his contract, to some degree his career, and is a post season rental. Heís also been a bit banged up

    I donít know if we as fans can handle all that...I mean, we get rid of the Wilpons, sign a mega contract, are in first place (driven by defense and analytics)

    I think our heads would explode if we took on a player/contract like Scherzer and agreed to take on someone like Starlin Castro so we can give up lesser prospects...donít know if theyíd want to part with Trae Turner and his salary

    I feel, something we didnít expect at the beginning of the season to happen is going to happen

    Scherzer's deferred payments is something I would hope Cohen would be willing to pick up. Not many teams would take that on.

    The biggest questions I have are not the salary for this year but:

    1. Certainly the deferred payments - I would not send prospects of any sort unless the Nats covered the deferred payments.
    2. How injured is he now and will Carrasco and Thor be ready before Scherzer.
    3. Even if Scherzer will be ready before Carrasco and Thor, how long is he expected to be on IL. You always have to add a month to that just because, you know, it is the Mets.
    4. Do you really think the Nats will trade with the Mets being in the same division.

    I don't care how good Carrasco or Thor can be. They're no Scherzer. They're good and the difference maybe wouldn't be huge. But Scherzer easily becomes our #2 starter no questions asked. Whereas with Carrasco and ESPECIALLY Thor, that isn't a certainty

    Mets have a solid rotation but could use a bit of depth. I donít think Scherzer is the smartest addition because heís hurt and would cost a bunch. Iíd rather pivot to another starter like Boyd, Mike Minor, or another #5 guy that can also function out of the bullpen. Mets donít really need pitching but having more could never hurt. I think trades for some no name fireballers that could take a 40 man spot are more likely...or more Nick Tropeano types, I suppose.

    If the Mets go after anybody, it should be more hitters, honestly. At this point, itís smart to just wait until the deadline because there will be a much better idea of when guys like Carrasco, Syndergaard, JD, and Nimmo will be healthy. Itíll be nice to see some of those guys coming back but an upgrade at third base definitely couldnít hurt, turning Villar into a super utility guy.

    For the last question, if the owners could get salary relief yes they would trade him to the Mets. They will exhaust every avenue first, but it isn't out of the realm of possibilities.

    This team lacks that dynamic middle of the order bat. Sum of their parts they should be better offensively and hopefully getting some of these guys back healthy will do that but they could really use a Devers, Acuna, Tatis type. I know those guys are basically untouchable but its the one thing they don't have that many of these other WS contenders do.

    Let's pray deGrom stays healthy and they get back some of these SP because that's going to be the tradeoff.

    Mullins, Marte, someone along those lines would help though. Just don't know what the price would be in terms of prospects. Probably a lot.

    Are Ronny Mauricio & Mark Vientos the highest ranked Mets prospects you would trade at deadline if needed to fill holes for playoff run?

    I wouldnít trade Alvarez, Baty, or Ronny.

    Anyone else, is on the table for the right guy.

    Nope, not trading any of those 3 guys unless I am getting a young controllable kid in his mid 20ís that is already stablished.

    Vientos I would deal even though I like him quite a bit.

    I wonder what it would take to get Josh Donaldson for half a season? Itíd be great to have his gritty attitude, perhaps having a fiery tough guy would help our soft *** lineup find their nuts.
