    We seem to hate CF prospects 😂. At least PCA lasted longer than Kelenic but not by much

    If we put him at third our offense gets worse, JD is much better at the plate

    Heís got a cannon. Much stronger than say...Lindor. His arm is closer to Arenados.

    Heís got 65 RBIs. He leads our team in that category. It may only be a .300 OBP...but he has a .830 OPS with RISP.

    Why is everybody freaking out. Lol. I donít get it.

    Because the Mets cheaped out. They could have gotten Bryant for lesser prospects had they picked up his remaining salary. Instead they gave up PCA for an obvious 2 month rental. The optics aren't good, especially when you see the trades made for similar type talent across the league.

    I don't mind Baez but its a deadline where more could and should have been accomplished.

    Itís half ***.

    This team always does half ***.

    With new owner willing to go over the cap you expected more than half ***.

    My take - Baez canít hurt but he may help. Prices were unusually high for rentals and, while PCA impressed in spring training, heís 19, coming off serious arm surgery and is much further away from the majors than the teamís other high value prospects. Bryant did seem the better fit but the price the Cubs set was seen as too high. Like Berrios with the Twins. Surprised that Maeda wasnít moved.

    Yep and I'm not sold the Mets will sign any of these major FA in the offseason. I dont think Cohen is the Wilpons but i'm not sure how many long term 25-30+ million dollar a year contracts he wants on the roster.

    And here's the thing at least when the Mets moved Kelenic they got a controllable asset in Diaz. Baez is an obvious rental who will walk in the offseason. Unless he takes a discount to play with his best friend Lindor and moves to 2nd or 3rd base. Very unlikely.

    Not worth PCA and especially when they could have gotten Bryant for lesser prospects and it would have cost was taking on his full remaining salary.

    Not to mention Conforto sucks. Bryant would have given them the versatility to have a real 3rd baseman and a guy who can capably play both corner OF spots. Even CF if needed.

    Baez is just a meh move. Williams is a mediocre SP. Nothing to write home about.
