The Mets would hang up the phone so fast on that deGrom trade. Literally none of those players are that good.

The league has proven they don't want Clint Frazier.
Bird can't stay healthy.
Tyler Wade straight up sucks. (He had a wRC+ of 29. Meaning, he was 71 percent worse than the AVERAGE hitter in baseball) .
Chance Adams just came off his worst season yet, with a 4.78 ERA in AAA. He has gotten worse at every stop.

I don't think you could get a #3 starter for that package, let alone the Cy Young winner.

And I didn't even see the Goldschmidt trade.

Yeah, let's just ignore this all around. What a freaking joke.

Yank---eees fans are so delusional in their trade proposals. they really must believe that all other GM's in baseball do nothing but wait of the call to help the Yank---eees. They are referred to as the 'smartest fans in baseball'---nothing to indicate that here!

why do you do this to yourself bwright? its terrible as usual, none of this is likely. The Goldschmidt trade makes no sense for the D-backs, they are still a good team, no reason for them to trade him. Voit and Bird will have a year to prove themselves: Is Voit a half year wonder, and can Bird stay healthy and be consistant. If not Jose Abreu is free agent after 2019. The Degrom trade won't happen, if it did it would have been at the deadline, the Mets are probably going to try to rebound next year and need everyone. I don't see them signing Harper.
Now I disagree with several things thestatbook said. Plenty of teams wanted Frazier last offseason, but he had injuries most of the year, so not many people want damaged goods. For Chance Adams, he got worse at every level? It was his first full season in Triple A and yeah he ERA over 4, he will be just fine.

Okay, let me rephrase:

No teams were willing to give up a #1 or #2 pitcher for Frazier, let alone Frazer + Adams.

Adams has almost every stat that matters get worse in his first full season at AAA. This isn't unusual or unique, but it's also alarming. Because most of his value was tied up in how dominant he was in the minors, particularly his 1.72 ERA in 100+ innings at AA.

His performance after a full season at AAA is extremely alarming, and many scouts and pundits online have written ad nauseam about it.

Also, read up on scouts' view of Frazier. Most think he's a total bust. There's a few "unnamed" ones (who we all know exist in the Yankees system) who think he's fine. Most folks have already moved on from him.

Moral of the story: no one is considering that package for an ace.

I did not disagree with you on the package, because its not enough. I was disagreeing with your assessment of the two. Perhaps Adams has a bounce back season or he doesn't, perhaps Frazier is a bust or he is going to recover from this concussion symptoms he had most of this year and do fine.
Also Bwright your a fool to think Sunny Gray and Jacoby Ellsbury will be on the team next year.

LOL at the DeGrom trade. With the D-Backs rebuilding and Goldy only on a 1 year deal, they likely consider that trade for him.

The funny thing about Adams is there's nothing to pinpoint why he got so bad. No drop in velocity. No major injury. He just got worse. And he finally caught up to his xFIP. Maybe he gets better, but all the signs say the better bet is he's not that great.

And my assessment on Frazier might not portray his talent, but again, most scouts have moved on. The Yankees reportedly couldn't even move Frazier for average starters. No one wanted him.

Again, none of this says they won't ever be good, but they aren't guys who can lead a package for a legit ace, let alone a #2 pitcher.

I do agree with you they probably won't bring an ace or a 2, maybe a year or two ago they would have. We will have to wait and see what happens in the offseason and next season with these 2.
