Welcome to Queens, Javier Baez. The Mets made a last-minute splash at the trade deadline to acquire the All-Star infielder, along with pitcher Trevor Williams. It came down to the final hour, but the Mets pulled off a big move to bolster a team that badly needed a spark, especially after the rest of the NL contenders all made splashes.
To talk about the trade deadline and everything Mets, we bring you a new episode of the “Amazin’ But True” podcast with Nelson Figueroa and me.
*This episode was recorded before the Baez trade*
Amazin’ But True Podcast with Jake & Figgie:
- TRADE DEADLINE: Mets have a lot of “what ifs” with injuries, guys potentially coming back and some players struggling. Rest of NL is getting better.
- WALKER/BLACK JERSEYS/CARRASCO: Taijuan Walker continues to struggle and he looks fatigued. Will the Mets have to rest him at some point soon? Black jerseys return on Friday. Carlos Carrasco makes his big debut.
You Got Mail: The guys get several voicemails from Amazin’ But True podcast listeners, including messages from Doc Gooden, Maggie Gray, Marc Malusis and Jim Duquette. They answer questions on Michael Conforto, the DH, Marcus Stroman and more.
