Deadline Trade

NYM- Joc Pederson, Brock Stewart, Will Smith
LAD- Matt Harvey

The Mets and Harvey have had issues since he came up. Sandy Alderson and Scott Boras never seem to get along and I believe it will lead to the split of these two. The Mets need a CF and the Dodgers need a RH starter. This trade makes sense for both teams.

Im assuming with all of the injuries the Mets will be out of contention at the deadline. If so, try to move Cabrera, Walker, Granderson, Duda, and Reyes at the deadline, if not let them walk as FA at end of the year.

QO Jay Bruce, get 1st round pick from whoever signs him.

Someone didn't pay attention to the new CBA. Free Agents that are offered the QO's no longer will bring a 1st round pick in the draft, it depends on type of market they are. I believe big markets get a 3rd round and small markets get 2nd and 5th round pick. Also it is entirely way to early to predict the offseason. I don't agree with the Matt Harvey trade, the Mets have a ton of outfielders, it wouldn't make sense to add another.

I believe it has to do with the luxury tax threshold. If the team signing the player exceeds it then they get the 2nd and 5th. If they don't then it's the third.

Take Joc out of the deal and add someone like Thompson then you have a deal.
