In order to get something you have to be willing to give something, and the something many will ask for as the trade deadline approaches in Jenrry Mejia.
I’m beginning to wonder what Mejia’s trade value is these days. He’s been spotty in his role out of the bullpen, and has a career 11-11 record in three years as a starter.
“How can the Mets sell this guy as a starter that can produce right away if he’s not even starting for them?’’ a former general manager said.
So, any deal made has to be looked at through the eyes of the other team as potential over production.
So, what will other teams do if the got Mejia. Why, my guess is they would send him to the minor leagues to develop him as a starter.
So, why won’t the Mets do the same?
