If they make this deal, the Mets had better not get rid of Noah Syndergaard. Because you don’t go and get a top-notch closer unless you’re one of 3 things:
- A contender that needs that final piece
- A team who plans to become a contender and has to act on getting a closer first because of the market
- An organization run by a clown school
Which of the three are the Mets?
I guess you could be a combination of 1&3 or 2&3. But if this deal goes through and the Mets dish Syndergaard, then you know where they fall.
(Side note: are there actually clowns anymore?)
