Welcome to the End Times.
Just to recap, the Mets have acquired a 36 year old guy who had a PED suspension and in exchange gave up almost all their prospects. That’s what all the smart teams are doing….getting older. Also, players continue to play well after Age 36.
Spin this all you want about Jay Bruce’s contract or that closers are that important….this is a disaster.
At this hour people are into the deal. Why? Because the local beat is. And is the local beat ever right about these things? No they aren’t.
So as you see your fellow under informed Mets fan on twitter start to follow The Beat’s lead and start buying World Series tickets, just ask yourself, what has The Destroyer done?
36. PEDs. 36. PEDs.
Emptied the farm.
For his ex-client.
It’s official! We’ve acquired 8x All-Star @RobinsonCano and All-Star closer @EdiDiaz44 from Seattle in exchange for Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, Gerson Bautista, minor league RHP Justin Dunn and minor league outfielder Jarred Kelenic. #Mets pic.twitter.com/h6Qd7sQvoW
