Good morning, and welcome to the Morning Laziness. If you are new, this is the spiritual descendant of Adam Rubin’s old Morning Briefing. However, whereas Adam provided lots of links, my goal is to summarize the morning so you don’t have to click on anything, especially the garbage created by what I call The Amazing Apple Insiderized Mets Blog Report (or AAIMBR) which is really several fan blogs, two of which have like 50+ writers on their mastheads and still the best they can come up with are Traids.
The SLACKISH REACTION is kind of like Adam’s RAPID REACTION except I am not staying up until 3am to write it, so mine can wait and is thus Slackish.
SLACKISH REACTION: I am getting bored with the Late Fall Meetings. Make a trade or don’t.
Mickey Hodges named Lyin’ Todd Frazier his everyday 3B. Sad. I think this is part of Wags’ con. And the Syndergaard trade would also be part of the con.
I do believe in the Jeff Wilpon Bro-Pal Theory.
NOT LINKING: The Mets met with deGrom’s people. Every other site will get you to click, but think about it, what else do you need to know other than the Mets met with deGrom’s people, right? And that’s how the Morning Laziness works. Unless you wanna read how the AAIMBR wants to trade Dom Smith which means nothing.
Today is one of those days where I have to ACTUALLY WORK (TM). Historically the Mets drop major news on days where I can’t deal with said news, so expect a huge bomb today.
