    A steal for the Mets, I'd rather keep the lottery ticket.

    Interesting Justin Maxwell career OPS againt LHP would be 4th on the team this season. Could have been decent platoon option depending on what they gave up. He has some value.

    He's now going on 21 years old with a career .310 OBP thus far. The odds are stacked against him ever panning out.

    Buster Olney saying Pirates are close to trading for Giancarlo Stanton?

    They must be literally giving up the farm. Includes Cole?

    Mets officials reportedly say they would be shocked if they made a deal today. MLB TV.

    BTW, I may eat these words, I'd be amazed if the Mets traded Byrd for Yorman Rodriguez.

    They want to improve and be good. Soon.

    The Bud Norris sweepstakes are over, finally.

    According to Ken Rosenthal, he was traded to the Orioles.

    A reputable person I follow RT it and it's exactly like Buster's profile. . . . it's a fake.
