In what can be described as a slow offseason (for all 29 teams other than the San Diego Padres), the Mets just made the blockbuster trade of the winter. After months of speculation, perennial all-star Shortstop Francisco Lindor, as well as starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco, are headed to the Mets for Amed Rosario and a package of prospects.
It is now abundantly clear that the Mets are in win now mode. It was already well known that new owner Steve Cohen would switch up the culture of the franchise, but after signing James McCann, completing this most recent blockbuster trade, and still being one of the front runners for George Springer, Uncle Stevie has shown that the blue and orange are looking to bring a crown to Queens.
Much of the offseason still remains, and Steve Cohen and Jared Porter are far from making their last roster move, but this trade leaves me, a lifelong Met fan, in a state of euphoria I have never experienced during my New York sports fandom. LFGM.
