I like this move if the Mets don’t dump Noah Syndergaard. OR, if they get Corey Kluber.
As much as it’d be ideal for the Mets if they had Kluber, Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom — which shouldn’t be legal — it might not be realistic. But if they get Kluber and in turn dish Syndergaard, that is an improvement.
Kluber has been much healthier throughout his career than Thor and he’s bee flat out more successful. Over the past five years or so, I’d say the top two righties and baseball have been Kluber and Scherzer. That’s not something I think is up for debate either.
Lots of good things happening in Queens right now. We’ll see if it holds up.
