It’s time for a New York Mets and New York Yankees trade. The cross-town rivals rarely do business with each other. However, Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen and Yankees general manager Brian Cashman are both open to making a trade. The ice might be starting to melt in New York.
As the dog days of Summer are approaching it’s time to look at the New York Yankees starting pitching trade options. The Yankees have had more than their share of injuries. Offensively the Yankees are close to getting their two biggest bats back. However, there are still injury issues with the Yankees pitching staff. After missing out on Dallas Keuchel, there are several ways that the Yankees can pivot to bolster their rotation.
Why do the New York Mets fans constantly live in the ’80s bubble? That’s a great question and one that can only be answered by a Mets fan. Playing in the same metropolitan city as the New York Yankees — with their 27 World Series championships and unrivaled history and tradition — shows why Mets fans live in the ’80s. After all, that was the best time to be a Mets fan.
The New York Yankees have continued to win despite dealing with several injuries to major stars. The Yankees are currently 14-11 and are just two games out of first place. Currently, the Yankees have eleven players on the injured list some of which are their best players. Only the depth of the Yankee organization has saved them. But even that depth is getting tested as the injuries continue to pile up.
The word came down Tuesday morning that 2018 NL Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets was getting a massive five year 137.5-million-dollar contract extension. No doubt this was a direct result of The deGrominator’s historic 2018 season.
Winning back to back awards is never easy. Since 2000 only 4 pitchers have been able to do it with all of them pitching in the National League. It will be a tall task for Jacob to repeat with all of the great pitchers in the NL this year including one on his own staff.
