What a ridiculous trade made by the Blue Jays.  Poor Marcus Stroman, leaves a loser for a loser.  I'm sure he's pissed off beyond belief right now. And the Mets. Who the hell are they trying to fool? The fans? This is hilarious. Oh well.

The New York Post's Joel Sherman has this:

"They were in fourth place, 7 ¹/₂ games out of a wild card, yet desperate to believe they were in it and to convince their fan base to keep coming to games. So the Mets made a win-now move and sacrificed their best lefty pitching prospect...They agreed to send their top lefty pitching prospect, Anthony Kay, and righty Simeon Woods Richardson, to the Blue Jays for Marcus Stroman. The deal needed physical review to be official, but all the players had been notified."

Giving away their best lefty pitching prospect was a huge mistake. The Jays are smiling all the way to the bank. Sadly, they are in the same pathetic boat as the Mets.  No movement despite all their efforts. And if you are a Mets fan, I hope you realize just how terrible a GM this Brodie Van Wagenen is.  More of the same for you guys. I feel for you.

If Marcus Stroman was a savior, the Yankees would have delivered Deivi Garcia to the Jays on a silver platter. And we're in first.  Not happening... something's a miss. Which is why Cashman stayed pat.

We will see what happens to the Mets here. Hell... maybe they make the wild card. Stranger things have happened. But this trade is RIDICULOUS on all fronts.

My goodness.
