It might be a blessing in disguise that the trade fell through

Yesterday, it was reported by Andy Martino that the Mets have traded Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler for Carlos Gomez of the Milwaukee Brewers. I was initially floored that the Mets traded Wheeler, who by all accounts is an ace on 20 out of 30 MLB Teams, and Wilmer Flores, who we have under control for three years after Gomez was scheduled to leave. Then we have Carlos Gomez, who is hated by 30 percent of Baseball players? Why? Watch this video:

And this one….

Let’s watch one more…..

This guy is not a good clubhouse presence, I don’t care how fast he is, a guy that is hard to not call a “punk” is not a guy that  the Mets should be going after. This trade not going through will pay dividends for the Mets in the end, but then again, only time will tell.

As it turned out two days later with the acquisition of Cespedes
it was indeed a blessing in disguise!!

Reblogged this on Mets Plus and commented:

This is an article I wrote last year, talking about how the Gomez/Flores deal fell apart.

I think it’s fair to say the Cespedes deal ended up being a much better one for the Mets.
